Pizzeria Uno (and Pizzeria Due which is their other building a short block away) in downtown Chicago is the best. Lou Malnati's is second best. Everything else is third best.

Growing up on the East Coast and moving to the Midwest, I can tell you theres a massive difference. Regardless of which you prefer, theyre different.

New York pizza, also East coast, New England, even Philly, is thin, crunchy on the crust and cut into triangle slices. The crust and the cheese are the critical taste elements, along with the sauce. Toppings are fine if you want them but lots of East Coasters have just cheese pizze. The proper way to handle is to grab the crust edge and bend/fold it slightly in the middle for ease in scarfing. East Coast pizza is very similar to pizza Ive had in Italy, particularly Rome and Venice.

Chicago style pizza is basically a pillow or a couch cushion with stuff piled on it. Its ******* gross. You cant fit this chunk of crap in your mouth for a bite. Much like Chicago style hot dogs, the key is to put as much **** on it as to make it unrecognizable from the initial food idea.

Other tidbits... Midwest non-Chicago pizza is oddly tasteless for some reason, and some psychopath decided to cut it into little squares instead of triangles. This is different from the Chicago pillow, better described as frozen bar food.

And, there is the crime against humanity that is "St Louis Style Pizza." This is really a thing. It is soggy, undercooked, no sauce and topped with some sort of special rancid "cheese" that it will make you vomit. Other than that, its just great.

The difference is simple...

NY pizza = awesomeness
Chicago pizza = greasy nastiness baked in the same pan over and over. Just nasty. Like not washing your underwear.

This whole discussion is related to the thread a few weeks ago about food tasting different in different regions.
I grew up with a thick pillowy crust, tomato sauce, mozza and pepperoni on top pizza.
Where the pepperoni gets slightly concave and crispy around the edges with a little pool of grease in the middle.
If you add toppings they all go on top of the cheese.

Where I moved out west they pile a whole slew of meats like an assorted sub under the cheese which steams the meat and browns the cheese. I can't stand it.

Face it, you've never actually had real pizza.
