Summary: Lou Malnati's has several locations within the Chicago area and boasts to be “the home of the BEST Chicago-style deep dish pizza in the world! If you love a buttery, flaky crust, sweet and tangy tomatoes, gooey mozzarella cheese, perfectly seasoned sausage, and other fresh ingredients- you’ve come to the right place.” Our next main stop on the food crawl of the day took us to this pizza joint. With the 35 minute standard wait, we relaxed in the cool AC with our drinks and just chatted at our table. Although salads and other appetizers are available, we chose to pass since we knew the pizza would be filling enough and we could not take any leftovers with us. Sure enough, the pizza arrived piping hot and our server offered each of us a piece. The cheese was extra gooey, the sauce was very chunky and the homemade sausage was tasty. The crust was thick enough to hold everything in, yet the sauce gave a soupy effect and the pizza was kind of standard. I expected it to be a little more filling, but was able to eat 2 pieces without a problem. I guess this type of deep dish pizza is different from the other stuffed variety also offered in Chicago. Ultimately, we still prefer a slice of the NY pie any day.

What I ate:

The "Malnati Chicago Classic"
Lou Malnati's is legendary for its pizza in the pan, and here, sausage is the specialty of the house. Made with Lou's exclusive blend of lean sausage, some extra cheese, and vine-ripened tomato sauce on our famous Buttercrust.™
