Pizzeria Uno

Venue Info

Known For

Pizza

Uno is where the original deep dish pizza -- a crispy short dough crust, topped with first with cheese, then with crushed tomatoes -- was invented in 1943. We salute it as living history, even if there are more places (some better, others not so much) doing authentic deep-dish better today. This is one heavy pizza, especially if you get sausage on it, which is more or less a solid disk of sausage plopped on the crust.
