Finally some good pizza

I was recommended Delfino's Chicago Style Pizza a couple years back by my Reverend. No, not Jeremiah Wright, my other reverend. But its taken that long for me to get close enough to the University District at a convenient time to give it a whirl. Today turned out to be the day.

One reason I haven't been in a hurry is we tried a place in North Bend that billed itself to be Chicago Style pizza, and the place had Chicago decor in it. However, the pizza was anything but Chicago style (looked like it came out of the grocery store freezer), and tasted worst that grocery pizza. Pretty rare that I don't take leftover food home, but no thanks to this place.

So we get to University Village, and after wandering around looking for a parking spot and waiting on pedestrians that love to walk in the middle of the lanes, we wandered in and was surprised to get a seat. After all, a good pizza place on a Saturday evening should be busy, no?

After ordering some cheap cheese pizza for the kids, Amy and I settled on a couple pizzas. One was a deep dish "Greek something or other", which is an olive oil base with spinach, mozzarella, and feta cheese. The other was a stuffed pepperoni and sausage.

Both were outstanding, and in true Chicago style, too thick to eat with your hands. I would say Giordano's and Edwardo's are safe from losing their top spot atop the Chicago Pizza Rankings, but this was excellent pizza, good enough that we will be back. Thanks for the recommendation, AJD.

Glad you liked. Sometimes a passing facsimile is good enough when the real thing is 2000 miles away. Next time you are in my neck of the woods, we have been going to Fondi's which is a Naples style pizza. Quite good.
