The dinner followed and looked delicious. So delicious that the kids spaghetti was quickly abandoned, and that diner also joined in on the deep dish. The crust was crisp, the large dough, cheese, sauce and pepperoni combination was soft and flavorful and we all were quickly well into the meal.
Our server dished out the first three gigantic slices and we broke out the forks for this feast until you get closer to the end of each slice, when you can pick it up by the crust. The biggest winner on the pizza was the somewhat sweet sauce that tied the slice together.
The gluten-free pizza was savory as well, and while the crust was thin, it still had the doughy flavor of a regular pizza crust.
Convincing my dining companions to share had another positive besides getting the deep dish pizza I craved. We all had room for dessert, and so we ordered the Mount St. Georgio ($8.99), a giant freshly baked chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and a mountain of whip cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce and cherry on top. Our server even gave a few extra cherries to prevent some squabbles at the table. It was the perfect way to end the meal.
