Totonno brings his ingredients from Italy and makes fresh dough every day. Although a few fires and even a hurricane have tried to end its legacy, Totonno’s still stands.
Pizzeria Uno, Chicago
A Texan businessman dreamed about an unusual style of pizza. The year was 1943 when Issac “Ike” Sewell opened Pizzeria Uno, in Chicago, featuring the now-iconic Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza. The dish was unlike anything heard before. A high rimmed pan used to bake the pizza created a steep edge, suitable for generous amounts of chunky sauce and cheese.
