I am a life-long Chicago deep dish pizza fanatic, and although I have been gleefully hiding this place from everyone else for years, I can't stand the number of lazy, hack restaurant critics who can't leave Michigan Avenue to actually do a thorough review of outstanding deep dish. Gino's East, Lou Malnati's, Uno's, Due's, Giordano's serve over-rated pizzas for tourists and suburban neophytes who get impressed by looking at sky-scrapers out the window or who drink too many pitchers of beer with their meal. Yes, Piero's on Ridge is buried in the suburbs in a strip mall. Yes, you have to order takeout. But you will never, ever have better deep dish pizza than this little joint. Cheese so delicate, ephemeral and profound that you will hallucinate cloud forms. Ingredients that will make you weep for your grandmother's garden. If it were possible to fedex this across the country without ruining that first bite straight from the oven, I would drop my dayjob to become a wholesaler. Order the deep-dish garlic and spinach (add achovies, if you're adventurous).

Pros: Deep dish pizza. Prepare for a glory.

Cons: Only takeout. But I'd eat this in the parking lot with my bare hands.
