Chicago-style thin crust pizza in SF, the penninsula, or East Bay?

I've been having difficulty finding the real Chicago-style pizza: the kind people actually eat in Chicago, that has a thin, somewhat crispy crust, a generous layer of sauce, and the toppings underneath the cheese, cut into squares. Not the "deep dish" or "stuffed" kind we used to have only once or twice per year, which is only slightly more "Chicago-style" than chinese checkers is Chinese.

Patxi's makes some bold claims, but it isn't quite right. Not bad, but it isn't it. And the SF location had no idea what I was talking about, when I asked for squares.

I know this can be had outside of Chicagoland. If in Tucson AZ there were two chains and at least as many mom-and-pop joints serving it, there has to be at least one in the Bay Area. Any tips?
