Pizzeria Uno

29 E. Ohio St., Chicago, IL - (312) 755-1777
Here is where Chicago deep-dish pizza first was served, just after World War II. Forget wan Uno outlets in other cities. The original is in a class by itself, its tall pizzas a virtual crustbowl full of sauce, cheese, and superb sausage.

This is a single individual pizza. You don't see the sausage, which is spread in abundance under the thick tomato topping. In our opinion, it's the rich, crumbly crust that puts this one in a league of its own.

Until you've eaten at the first Uno, you cannot know the true glory of Chicago deep-dish pizza. Uno franchises around the country are mere shadows of the original.

In the history of pizza in America, this corner bar is a landmark: home of thick-crust pies ... and the beginning of Chicago's rich pizza culture.
