Aaron,

I would guess that the recommendations will be similar to those advanced a while back at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,2587.msg22400.html#msg22400.

Thanks Peter for the link.
I can not wait for this roadtrip,me and the brother in law are gonna have a good time and some good eats.
P.S deep dish is very hard to find in Canada,Frank Vateers(sp) was here about 20 years back but they only lasted a couple months before packing it in.The place was always packed but they still closed down,go figure.

Aaron,

I love telling this story........ a place near me called "Papa Pizza" , sells a "Chicago" style pizza.

If you call them, and ask for this type of pie, guess what they send you ? ........ a regular ol' pizza
but they just make the dough a lot thicker ! .... that's it........... Canadian style Chicago pizza  :o

The places around here couldn't bake a real Chicago pizza if their life depended on it...... it's pretty
sad.... however I guess it's normal, as nobody even knows what they are, so it doesn't get the owners
of pizza parlours to get educated on it....

But in defense of our places around here,  many of the PRIVATE owned places make awesome pizza... when
I want a good pizza I will go over and order one ( not from a franchise though) and eventhough they are all the
same from private owned to private owned, they are great pies.  I guess when you grown up eating a certain
style of pizza, you just tend to love it, and they do make great pizzas.
