When searching for the best pizza, Gothamites tend to gravitate toward classic New York–style folding slices and bubbly, Neapolitan-inspired rounds. While we’re always down for a classic pie from Italian restaurants or a good ol’ pepperoni slice, we’d be lying if we didn’t admit there are times we crave the thick, casserole-like quality of a meaty Chicago deep-dish. Since cheap eats cravings are meant to be satisfied, we happily deviated from the thin-crust norm (and sub-par slices from 24-hour pizza spots), and rounded up the standout eateries slinging deep-dish slices. Unfortunately, they’re in short supply here in NYC, but a cheesy Detroit corner slice or spongy Sicilian square will also do the trick in a pinch.
