In Chicago, eating pizza is a dining experience, not just a snack. But it wasn’t always that way. Ike Sewell changed things back in 1943 when he created Deep Dish Pizza. Some folks call it Chicago pizza. Ike figured that if you combined some of Italy’s old, authentic recipes with impressive quantities of the finest meats, spices, vegetables and cheeses, pizza would become a hearty meal. So he opened Pizzeria Uno as a fine restaurant specializing in his new Deep Dish Pizza and it wasn’t long before the restaurant had more customers than it could handle. Menu items include spinoccoli, chicken fajita pizza, grilled buffalo quesadillas and pizza skins.
