Having grown up in New York I wasn't too sure about the entire deep-dish or stuffed pizza concepts. To a New Yorker it seems alien. However, I decided to go to college in Chicago and quite honestly that is tough place to find a New York style pizza!
By my sophmore year I was a stuffed pizza addict, and my pizzeria of choosing was Bacino's in Lincoln Park. There was aways a wait, but while waiting you could watch the creation of the stuffed pizzas in the open kitchen. We preferred eating upstairs, but we would settle for the basement seating (no windows, not as good people watching).
Like all college students we went out in groups and as a result we were able to order a pretty wide variety of different pizzas with traditional toppings or, in this case stuffings, including pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, veggies and more.
