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.
Located southwest of Chicago, this old-school charmer makes the short trip to the suburbs worthwhile. Louisa DeGenero and her daughter opened Louisa’s over 40 years ago, converting a former dive bar into a family-friendly neighborhood favorite. Build your own buttery deep-dish pizza and grab a pint. Don't skip on appetizers and sides like cheesy meatballs or sausage with peppers.
How to order: Order ahead for delivery or pickup through Slice.
