Food is a big deal in Chicago, from hot dogs to 3-star restaurants, but if there's one food Chicagoans rave about most, it's undoubtedly Chicago-style pizza. This gooey, cheesy, deep-dish pie with its thick, cornmeal crust was invented at Chicago’s famed Pizzeria Uno in 1943.

Learn how pizza recipes evolved over time and became part of Chicago culture on this guided tour. Go beyond the big-name joints and visit local eateries that use fresh ingredients and innovative techniques to make amazing pizza. These hearty pies have little in common with the thin-crust pizzas found in other cities, but offer a unique pizza pie experience to take your love for this ultimate American comfort food to a whole new level.

Give your taste buds a treat at the famed Pizzeria Uno for the most traditional experience, and learn about the ingredients, ovens, and physics of what sets these pizzas apart. Then move on to another parlor like Giordano's or Quartino Ristorante as your guide leads you through the Gold Coast and River North neighborhoods, pointing out interesting historical sights and landmarks along the way.

You can head back satisfied and confident that you've now got the pizza knowledge of a true Chicagoan. This is a perfect chance to take a bite out of Chicago's classic culinary scene while burning off some of that cheesy goodness on your 1.2 mile (2 km) walk.
