Where will you find the best pizza in Chicago? Ten food experts agreed on where to find Chicago's best pizza and one joint topped all others.

The Job I Never Want to Have

I've had the pleasure of waking up Rockford morning radio listeners for close to 30 years and I love my job. There are several professions I would never want to be a part of; one is being a food critic, specifically a pizza critic.

Everyone's tastebuds are different, and how could I be so bold as to tell you what food is best? There are so many variables to consider when it comes to Chicago pizza. Deep dish, pub style, pan style, wood fire, and 100s of toppings.

Where is Chicago's Best Pizza

But something about what I'm about to share taps into how I feel about gossip and hearsay. When you keep hearing the same story several times, I tend to believe I'm hearing close to the truth, if not right on the money.

I mention that because this is not the first time I've read how amazing this Chicago pizza joint is. It was studyfinds.org that led me here. I'll be in Chicago for a concert soon and I thought I'd see what the most talked-about pizza point is.

Man, I'm so glad I searched for "Chicago's Best Pizza." If you needed a reminder that there just isn't a better place in Chicago to grab a pizza, whether it's the classic deep dish or some thin crust. There's one other thing that sets this joint apart from the rest. Besides their long history with the city of Chicago, it's that crust that they burn (just a little), for another delicious profile to their flavor that you didn't expect.
