Best Pizza in Chicago?

When I was in Chicago in the Spring, my sister introduced me to Pequod's Pizza.  From what I understand it used to be owned by the legendary Burt Katz and is similar but I can't say as I haven't tried both.  I liked Pequod's but I didn't think it was the best one I had tried.  Sure the edges of the crust are wonderful.  That's because they bake an extra layer of cheese between the edge of the pizza and the pan to create a delicious layer of burned cheese.  However, everything leading up to that part, I  found to be kind of average.  Well, then I read this article on serious eats

and I knew that I had ordered wrong.  So this time we ordered it with extra cheese and extra sauce and now I have a far and away favorite.  I'll have to try one from Burt's to compare but considering this was so good without having to go through all the steps of pre-ordering and getting there (in fact we just called and had it delivered) it might be hard to talk me into it.
