Emmett Burke carved out a space for deep-dish lovers in the country’s thin-crust capital when he opened his namesake restaurant in 2013. Though sandwiches and salads also share space on the menu, it’s the deep-dish pies that draw in patrons so devoted they’ve been known to wait outside of Emmett’s for hours. The pizza-making itself is no rushed affair, with the nine-ingredient dough prepared well in advance of the pie. Once ready, the rolled-out dough gets pressed into a two-inch pan and festooned with cheese, optional toppings and a scarlet crown of spice-laden sauce.
