The home of the Deep Dish

Continuing with my adventures in the windy city I had to go to the place where the Chicago style pizza or Deep Dish was born. I couldn't pass the chance to try the buttery flaky crust, three inches tall, topped with plenty mozzarella cheese and a chunky tomato sauce.

Deep Dish Pizza the Holy Grail

The urban legend says that Pizzeria Uno founder Ike Sewell created the deep dish in 1943 in the corner of Ohio street and Wabash avenue. Again really near from my hotel, so as you can imagine I couldn’t resist the opportunity of going to this “Legen… wait for it… “Dary” place.

Pizzeria Uno Home of the Deep Dish Pizza

The place is small and cozy, full with pictures of Chicago, and old news articles, the pizza is just awesome, I tried the Numero Uno, extra cheese, sausage, pepperoni, fresh mushrooms, onions, and green peppers.

The Menu
Numero Uno Deep Dish Pizza

If you’re in Chicago don’t waste more time and go to Pizzeria Uno home of the Deep Dish pizza, highly recommended.

Mission accomplished

All this pizza reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Muffin Tops” when Kramer started the Real Peterman Reality Bus business.

Jerry: Hey, what were you doing with that bus yesterday?
Kramer: Here you go, here you go, check it out.
Jerry: "The Real Peterman Reality Bus Tour". I'm confused.
Kramer: Peterman's book is big business. People want to know the stories behind the stories.
Jerry: Nobody wants to go on a three hour bus tour of a totally unknown person's life.
Kramer: I'm only charging $37.50, plus you get a pizza bagel and desert.
George: What's desert?
Kramer: Bite-size Three Musketeers. Just like the real Peterman eats.
George: He eats those?
Kramer: No. I eat those. I'm the real Peterman.
George: I think I understand this. Jay Peterman is real. His biography is not. Now, you Kramer are real.
Kramer: Talk to me.
George: But your life is Peterman's. Now the bus tour, which is real, takes to places that, while they are real, they are not real in sense that they did not “really” happen to the “real” Peterman which is you.
Kramer: Understand?
Jerry: Yeah. $37.50 for a Three Musketeers.
