Di Noko's - Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

GutGrease | Aug 30, 201104:22 PM     24

I finally tried Di Noko's Chicago Deep Dish pizza and was pretty impressed. They certainly don't skimp on the cheese layer, and as a former Wisconsinite, that's goodness in my belly. Mrs. Gutgrease wasn't thrilled about me ordering their deep dish as she doesn't typically like the style. After all was said and done, she said that it was the best pizza that she'd ever eaten. This came from a woman who is never "wowed" by any food. In addition, she hates big chunks of vegetables especially tomatoes but loved the tomato chunks in Di Noko's Chicago style. We had the pepperoni and sausage and it was great. Left overs were great too when we heated them up in the toaster oven.

We went back this past Friday and ordered two deep dishes (both pep&saus) and were equally enthralled with the product. I also had a nice time talking to the proprietors both times.

That said the neighborhood isn't the greatest and you can't eat there - take out and delivery only. For me it's well worth the short drive over there. I'll try to link to the place, but best description is that it's just north of the airport and east of Lake Nokomis, close to Al Vento.

For reference, here is a previous thread about Chicago style pizza:
