My friend and I were on a road trip and we kind of (unfortunately) breezed right through Chicago because we had a deadline to meet getting home. One thing we definitely wanted while in town was deep-dish. We picked Pizano's on a concierge recommendation and we throughly enjoyed it.
For some reason, after driving from South Dakota, we were overly ambitious and ordered the artichoke dip and 2 personal pizzas. The artichoke dip was a huge appetizer, more than enough for 2 people and we did not finish it because we needed to save room for the pizza!
We got the vegetarian and the cheese deep-dish. They were phenomenal! Being an east coaster I asked for garlic powder as a topping and was brought out a cup of fresh garlic and was told "welcome to Chicago, we use the real stuff!" Let me tell you, the real stuff is way better than the powder stuff!
Being soo stuffed from the artichoke dip we each only ate 1 slice of the deep dish (I know, lame). But we got our leftovers packed up and ate them for breakfast the next day and they were still delicious! I know some people aren't into pizza leftovers for breakfast but this pizza is fantastic and there was no way I was leaving these leftovers in the hotel!
