Staying at the Hyatt next to a Gino’s East and still ordered Giordanos. Pizza was good. A bit on the over cooked side but still a solid pizza.

Alright Frankie, not a good idea to eat this couch pizza before a road trip. Very good but very sleepy.

Note - This Review is for the Thin Crust at the Rosemont Giordano’s only. Everything blended together really well, the crust was flaky like a cornmeal of sorts. The cheese, the dough, the sauce and worked perfectly together. This is a solid pizza you can count on to enjoy is definitely a heavy pizza. David Portnoy I’m throwing it down to you to try Giordano’s Thin Crust, I know it’s Chicago and Deep Dish is their thing, but it’s some seriously good thin crust pizza!

What happened? Unfortunately, I have to make my rating based on the pizza that I was provided. Admittedly, I am a huge fan of Giordano's stuffed pizza and have been eating it most of my life. Today, I went with the thin crust. I don't ever remember their thin crust and not exceptionally enjoying it, but not this time. I ordered pickup online with a 12:00-12:15 pickup time. I showed up almost exactly at 12:00. Can't blame a guy for making sure he hits the earliest time of the window in case its early, right? It wasn't ready, which was perfectly fine! I can always wait for a good pizza. I could tell the staff was a little frazzled and the cashier told the cook (in Spanish) that the pizza had a 12:00 time (I understand Spanish). It was given to me about 5 minutes later, sweet. The dining room was pretty packed for lunch on a week day, so they may have been behind. When I opened the box, well, it didn't look like their normal thin crust. Just.... different. When I started to eat it, I concluded I got what I call a "lazy pizza". Uneven distribution of sauce and very little at that, some sausage pieces could've been cooked longer, and crust with a very thin crispy bottom then slightly too doughy as the crust rose. What I got was a classic case of, "let's put the pizza in the hotter part of the oven so it cooks quicker." An obvious sign of this was the cheese unevenly browned on top. To the naked eye (looking at my picture provided) it looks okay, but look at it compared to their other thin crust pizza pictures; completely different. Was it horrible? No. However, I am disappointed that this was given to me carelessly. I really hope this location doesn't fall victim to the O'Hare Airport tourist/businessmen dinner laziness. Stick to what you know and continue to make quality pizza much like the downtown locations. With that being said, I won't be in a hurry to come back unless it's to get their stuffed pizza.
