One of my recent travels took my to Chicago. I had been there once when I was little and my memory escapes me on what I ate and saw when I was there. The only thing I really wanted to eat during my visit there was a Chicago deep dish pizza. My friend, a Chicago native, took me to her favorite place - Giordano's. We ordered a deep dish pizza with sausage and onion. Thirty minutes later we were greated with a piping hot pie of cheesy goodness.
There was more cheese than I knew what to do with but I love cheese so this was not a problem for me. The sausage was good, more of a sweet Italian than a spicy Italian. The sauce on top provided just enough flavor to keep the cheese from being overwhelming. The crust was fantastic - buttery and flaky. My only complaint is that there wasn't enough sausage and onion - most of the bites were only cheese and I sort of forgot that we had ordered a pizza with other ingredients besides cheese. Maybe that is the point though considering I've never had a Chicago deep dish pizza before, but I will be back and eat at other places to be able to compare and I'll let you know how this place stands up to the others.
