Throwback Pizza Review, October 23rd 2019 Pepperoni pizza while at Pequad's while visiting Chicago. As as native New Yorker, I had big doubts going in but had to get a first hand experience to find out what all the noise was about coming out of Chicago. My friend Jane is a local and brought me here as its one of the most famous pizzas in the city. I'd prefer a standard cheese pizza and don't ever get toppings when reviewing, but this was with friends and before a precident was set. Regarding the verdict, it was better than I expected coming into town. I'm a sauce guy more than a cheese lover and while this had a lions share of mozzarella, it was fairly balanced with a good amount of tangy sauce and a crispy, buttery undercarriage. The pepperoni had a good level of cook, it was a long wait with growing anticipation. The pizza is so hearty you can only eat a slice or two before having to throw in the towel. Not proud to ever do it but I ate it with a knife and fork due to the heat from the pan, impatience and the cake-like texture of the slice. Overall an enjoyable experience that forced me to drop my preconceived hate and admit Chicago pizza ain't so bad. I still wouldn't wanna move to the city, East Coast reigns.

The crust might seem burnt, but it’s quite buttery and provides a lot of crisp. Sauce has a distinct flavor. It’s quite delicious and worth a trip if you’re in Chicago.

Great taste. Perfect amount of cheese and sauce, but needs to be crispier.

First Chicago style deep dish ever for me. More dough than I expected but it’s great dough/crust and the carmelized ends of the crust live up to the hype. Very cool spot

Crust was perfect. One of the tastiest pizzas I’ve ever had. Wings were great too.

Solid and worth trying of course. Lot of bread and the crunchy crust is unique

Had the pan and thin crust pizza, it was nothing special. The well done option was a nice flare. Sausage is good quality.

Wow. Sausage and pepperoni. Crust is the perfect combo of crispy and doughy. Very impressed

Thin crust was a 2.3 horrible, and the wait staff forgot to put the order in because we tested the deep dish and that was ok, no way a 7.4 lol

This is honestly just the best pizza I’ve ever had, nothing about this pizza is bad, if you want the best pan/deep dish in Chicago go to Pequods.
