Deep-dish Pizza, Amore Pizza & Pasta

Chicago’s deep-dish pizza is much maligned outside the Windy City. But for Chicago expats needing a fix, the version at Amore will do in a pinch. They get the nearly 2-inch crust right, and the sauce is appropriately sweet and tangy. Traditional toppings should include sausage, onions, green pepper and mushrooms. It’s OK if you can only eat one slice. Large four-topping pizza $27 ($21 for thin crust), 3945 S. Durango Blvd., 562-9000.
