Why Chicago's Pizza isn't more renowned for it's pies I will never understand. Their stuffed pies are virtually perfect, at least for my preferences.
Start with the crust, flaky but still solid with a little cheese built into the base of the outer crust.
Then the sauce is tangy with a spicy undercurrent, absolutely perfect.
Ingredients are generously portioned, with vegetables not being cut too big.
Finally, the overlooked element, cheese. Unlike the bland cheese they use at most places, Chicago's cheese is saltier with a texture that snaps. This brings out the flavors of the other ingredients even better.
Add to all that their excellent prices and the fact that they deliver very late, and it all equals the ideal pizza spot, especially for delivery.
