Chicago pizza isn't just about deep-dish. While we can—and do—master the style, there's so much more here—Neapolitan, Sicilian, New Haven and other styles are also available, and Chicago bars do a mean cracker crust. The best Chicago restaurants also get creative, with macaroni and cheese-topped slices and housemade charcuterie. And since you need something to drink with your pizza, we'll help you pick the best craft beer and wine.
