WORLD FOOD DIARY: TAKE THREE - Chicago's Pizza

Deep Dish Pizza - Chicago's Specialty

Okay...so you know by now if you've read my other world food diary entries that I'm all about trying some local cuisine, especially the home of an original style. That's why I had to have Chicago's famous deep dish pizza. But I am sad to say I was not a fan. I'm not knocking the way it was made, because we had the best. 

We tried a slice of the pie at the wildly popular Gino's East Chicago pizzeria located in the "Pizza Capitol of the World" - Chicago. Everyone else loved it, but my #1 problem was the over abundance of pizza sauce. Yeah, I know that's kind of the point with this type of pizza, but all I could taste was sauce. 

I might as well have just gotten pasta with the sauce. It was just an overload to my tastebuds, but by all means if you're in the Windy City you've got to try it. It'd be like going to Philly and not having a Philly Cheese Steak! :) You should have the best though! Go to Gino's East Chicago and see the city's sights while you're there!
My first deep dish pizza slice: Hawaiian (ham & pineapple)
