There are few things Chicagoans feel more passionately about than pizza. It is the most identifiable food of the city, and neighbors argue endlessly about who makes the best pie. Which is better, tavern-style thin or deep-dish? What are the essential ingredients necessary on top of the ideal pizza? Do locals actually eat stuffed and deep-dish as much as the media says they do? With such a broad range of Chicagoland pizzerias, how could anyone ever decide the best of the best, once and for all? Enter Steve Dolinsky, Chicago's eminent food journalist and impartial pizza judge extraordinaire. Dolinsky has embarked on a self-described "Pizza Quest," methodically taste-testing 180 different pizzas all over Chicagoland before coming up with his 101 best. Most surprising of all was the realization that the Windy City offers a stunning ten distinctive categories of pizza. He'll reveal the top five pies in several of them. Expertly written, thoroughly researched, and finely detailed, you will learn more about pizza in Chicago than you ever thought possible. Does Lou Malnati's really have the best deep dish in the city? Where should you go to find the best artisan-style thin crust? Did your favorite pizzeria make the list? Find the answers to all of those questions and more in Pizza City, USA.
