Louisa's Pizza & Pasta

Chicago

Among the hoards of pizza places mastering the art of the deep dish, Louisa's Pizza & Pasta is a hidden thin-crust gem located in Crestwood on the South Side. Sure, there's still some phenomenal deep dish at this dark, diner-style bar and restaurant, but it's the crunch of the thin crust and the slew of toppings like mushrooms, green peppers, sweet tomatoes and gooey mozzarella that really take the cake -- or, in this case, pie.
