What we say
The lads realized we had not tried many Chicago style pizzas lately and they can be amazing taste experiences. Just a word on what a real Chicago style pizza is- a thick ,deep dish, firm dough pan pizza (with raised edges) layered with cheese and toppings (if any) and loads of thick sauce on top. Yes, the cheese is under the sauce which some say makes a superior taste. So a visit to Rosati’s is a must, as it offers the authentic article. We went for the plain cheese and tomato, perhaps not the most exciting offering but we wanted to taste Chicago in its purest form. The Pizza looked Marvelous, a real pie with oodles of sauce and of a decent size.
The base was pretty thick with a crisp edge and biscuit style texture with a lovely buttery taste.
The cheese was loaded inside the pan crust in a thick layer with a lovely stringiness and being Wisconsin had a sharp pungent flavor. On top of this was a fantastic thick helping of tomato sauce that has a sweet hot tang and tastes of fresh tasting crushed tomatoes with a hint of seasoning. The verdict is that this is a nice example of a Chicago pizza, and we can say the ingredients were of above average quality and as a classic offering it would be hard to beat.
