    She might have recommended Pequod's or Burt's/Bert's. I believe they both are in Morton Grove. Hope this helps.

      Both Pequod's and Burt's sell by the full pie only; not by the slice. Although both my daughter and I would definitely recommend Burt's (NOT Pequod's, at least not anymore) for the best pan pizza in the Chicagoland area.

        Gee, and I always thought that it was the Sears Tower that was built for tourists!

          Yes, but at least as you watch this slaughtering, you don't have to experience 20 degree wind chills in EARLY OCTOBER..which is what we had last night..

            that's precisely why I live here. NW Iowa convinced me not to live in a "frozen tundra" environment ever again!

            back on topic. does anyone know if Ray's Pizza is considered NY or Chi-town?

              I don't understand the attraction to "Chicago style" pizza. The pizza appears to me to more of a casserole than a pizza.

                Chicago isn't all about deep dish pizza, although that's what they're known best for. There are a lot of pizza restaurants opening that serve thin crust. Pizza Rustica near the Red Line Sheridan stop has a great Venetian-style thin an flaky crust.

                This is their Quattro Stagioni pizza, with tomatoes, artichoke, mushrooms and ham. Delicious!

                  Im' with you on this one roosey! I have had most styles of pizza and I am a firm believer in thin crust NY style. I have had it in Brooklyn and as far as I am concerned, there is no better pie to be had!
                  I have had a stuffed pizza in Chitown and although it was very good it just doesn't compare to NY style thin crust. JMHO David O.

It is very tasty! In fact, since it's lunch time here, I think I'll head over there for a slice(or two) right now!
                      Never been there. Where is it located? I can't seem to find a good NY style pie anywhere in the Phx. area. David O.

                          Pizzaria Bianco is a very good pie, but most folks will find it a bit too trendy, and the wait can be very long.

                          For good lunch time order at the counter pizza I go to Ray's Pizza (NY Style neopolitan and sicilian) several locations in the Phoenix area, I also frequent Slices at lunch time in downtown Tempe, they proclaim to be Chicago Style pizza, it is also thin crust.

                          I really like Momma Cachina's in Fountain Hills. They serve both thin and pan Chicago Style pizzas. Never had a bad pie there. Of course we can't forget Oregano's also Chicago Style (thin or thick), even if you are not a fan of stuffed pizza, this will probably change your mind.

                          If you are looking for NY Style at a sit down joint, I have been to NYPD pizza in N Scottsdale a couple times and was not dissapointed.

                            the pizza looks good. But that is not NY thin crust. it's not thin enough. I agree that Ray's Pizza is a good benchmark. There's many places as good and argueably better in NYC, but Ray's (and I'm talking about the one on 14th Street in the Village) is a good place to start when talking about NY style pizza. Square, medium thick pizza is not anywhere in the ball park.

                            (one of these day's I'm going to put a pick of NY pizza so that anybody who hasn't been to NY can see what it is for real - I'm not a NY style pizza snob. it's true that NY style is my favorite, but I like deep dish and other types too. In Syracuse, NY there's a place call "Twin Trees" on Avery Ave. - I love it. It's great pizza - but it is not NY style.)
