Best Deep Dish Pizza, outside of Chicago

Ive tried Lou's and Gino's in Chicago.

Anyone have their favorites outside of Chicago? any on the West Coast?

The best deep dish pizza in Detroit is Buddy's since 1946. Deep dish Chicago style is a little thicker than most deep dish I have had around the country.

Best in the SF Bay Area is Zachary's -- wish we had one on the west side of the Bay -- although Patxhi's and Little Star aren't bad.

Outside of the Chicago, but elsewhere in the midwest, Giordano's is great

Oregano's in the Phoenix, Tucson, and Flagstaff areas. Awesome buttery flaky crust but it holds up to the toppings.

It is by no means world-class, but there is a new American-operated brew pub in Tokyo which has the only passable deep-dish that I have encountered anywhere in Asia. Several local friends of mine became completely addicted to it around the same time...

Oregano's in the Phoenix area does a pretty good one. It has Chicago roots too.

I've tried to go the location right near me at Scottsdale and Shea. However there is always a least an hour wait. I won't wait an hour for anything, let alone a pie. So everytime this happens I simply walk 50 feet to the left and grab a table at NYPD.

In Austin, it would probably have to be Conan's.

You can get good pizza of any style in Chicago. I doubt whether that's the case for NY. And if you could, I doubt anyone from NY would admit it.

Ever wonder why there's an hour wait at Oregano's and you can walk right into NYPD?

I'll believe that you can get good NY pizza in Chicago when I see it. You certainly can't out here, although that's as an expat New Yorker; I'd imagine a Chicago local might say the same about what passes for good Chicago pizza here in the Bay Area.

So... any recommendations for NY pizza in Chicago?

I don't believe you can tell good pizza by "seeing it," but since you're from NY, you probably can.

Gigio's on Broadway. I don't expect you'll agree with me if and when you try it, but it's obscure enough that you probably won't be able to contradict me any time soon.
