Deep-dish pizza isn't just for Chicago tourists. Locals eat it too — judiciously, chowing down on the very best slices they've discovered in a lifetime of eating deep dish. These are the spots they dine at.
Chopped judge Marc Murphy remembers the best thing he ever ate on a road trip: the pizza pot pie from Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. Not a pot pie, not a deep-dish pizza, this dish is its own tasty entity. Wisconsin brick cheese, button mushrooms and secret tomato sauce with homemade pork sausage are layered inside a ceramic bowl and topped with triple-raised Sicilian dough and baked until it forms a moist, chewy and delicious crust. It's served flipped upside down onto a plate -- a meal Marc won't ever forget.
