If you live in or near Chicago, then you are probably aware that there is nothing like a Chicago pizza. You can not just call any pizza a Chicago pizza because it is made in a special way. To put it simply, this type of pizza is a deep dish. Now, I'm not talking about the stuff Pizza Hut calls deep dish. I mean that this pizza is really deep! This pizza may be considered as the opposite of the flat New York style pizza. A lot of people are still arguing over which style is truly the best.
You can request some places in Chicago to deliver their pizza to your home. In fact, you can get Chicago pizza delivered to your front door, even if you live in Florida. However, it will not arrive in the traditional way, and there will be no need to tip the delivery boy. This pizza will be sent to your home and you must cook it yourself. You can be sure that the pizza will be authentic, and you can see what all the fuss is about once you tasted it.
You will have more options when it comes to ingredients if you can find someone to mail you a Chicago pizza. There is room for just about anything you could desire since so much goes into a deep-dish style pizza. You will be amazed at the long list of veggies, meat toppings, cheese, and other oddities that you can choose from. I can assure you that you will get the pizza of your dreams, and lots of it. If you look hard enough, you might even find wacky combinations like pineapple and ham at some shops. Of course, it will depend on the shop you choose, and how traditional they are. Some people simply believe that fruit should not be put on a Chicago Pizza and that is the end of the story.
You should remember that you can not eat a lot of Chicago pizza. You may find trouble finishing just one slice of a Chicago pizza even if you are used to having two or even three slices of a New York style pizza at one sitting. The slices are so thick that it's more like eating a large slice of lasagna than it is a slice of pizza. You might have to take most of your pizza home to eat, but you'll be happy when you realize that it'll still be good the second time around.
