Nothing is as synonymous with Chicago as pizza! Deep dish, to be more specific! The history of the tasty pizza pie creation dates back more than 70 years, and it’s since become an essential part of Chicago’s culture. Today, most Chicagoans have enjoyed their fair share of cheesy and saucy slices, but very few of us have ever tried our hand at buidling this epic pizza creation ourselves! This spring, plan an outing to Pizzeria Uno in River North, an historic Chicago eatery specializing in deep dish, for a tasty and educational DIY experience you won’t forget!
