Chicago Deep Dish Pizza – Uno’s

When I was on my way to my niece’s birthday party in Wisconsin in January, I got stuck in Chicago because of the weather. My connecting flight was cancelled and I was lucky enough to have a place to stay in my father-in-law’s downtown apartment. It was late, I was by myself and it was a blizzard outside, but I decided to go out and get some pizza. My husband recommended that I go to Uno’s, which just so happened to be right around the corner from the apartment. I sat at the bar and made friends with the bartender and ate my first Chicago style deep dish pizza. The pesto pizza was out of this world – the crust is buttery and flaky and the pesto, tomato and melted cheese combine to make it the perfect bite. It takes 45 minutes to make the pizza but it’s worth the wait.
