For only $4, you can get an almost half-pound slab of deep dish that will test the longevity and strength of the paper plate it rests on. The crust is thick and toasted to an olive-oil crisp on the bottom and covered in a half-inch of mozzarella that seeps down the sides of the slice like molten lava. If you can even manage to finish your piece, it's sure to tide you over for the rest of the day.
While Chicago has countless options for satisfying your pizza cravings, it’s still difficult to find many places offering a quality pizza slice. We tracked down the best bets for grabbing a piece of pie to go when you don’t have the time to wait for a made-to-order deep dish or thin crust pizza. When ordering, keep in mind that a pizza that’s been sitting around can get dry and crusty fast—you may want to consider sacrificing your favorite topping choice for a pie that's fresh from the oven.
