Looks delicious, I may well give them a try on my next visit. But, as always, it’s all just the usual thin crust pizzas like every place in Medellin has, does ANYONE know of ANY PLACE in the area, besides the now long closed 2 locations of Chicago’s Pizza, that offer a traditional Chicago style deep dish or stuffed pizza? Theirs was wonderful, and JUST like the real thing, I’d really LOVE to introduce Mi Amorcita to real Chicago Deep Dish, without needing a visa & a plane ticket (well, not yet anyway…) Would also like to find a place that does what New Yorkers call a “Sicilian” style pizza, which is not a stuffed deep dish, but has a soft & chewy doughy crust more than twice as thick as “normal” pizzas (and is usually rectangular instead of round, although that really doesn’t matter much.)
Chicago’s closes a long time ago and had horrible pizza, I used to live in Chicago.
There is no place in Medellín that has traditional Chicago style deep dish or stuffed pizza?.
