Full disclosure, this is my favorite Chicago deep dish pizza. I actually haven't tried that many, but I've always had a soft spot for Pequod's. I might be a little biased, but will try to rate it fairly. Let's get to it!
Sylvie: 4 (out of 5)
Take aways: Cheese seems hard to get wrong, but also hard to really make stand out in any way. This cheese was very functional and did the job. Seemed like the right amount of it on the pizza.
Take aways: We liked that it was chunky, not too sweet, and not too tart. But it didn't particularly blow us away and seemed pretty ordinary.
Take aways: Sylvie didn't like that there wasn't that much spinach on her half. The italian sausage for me, however, was delicious. It had a nice sear on the outside and was given in generous portions. The mushrooms were cooked well all around.
Take aways: Pequod's is known for their crust, and they delivered. It's the best pizza crust I've ever had, to be honest. It was completely carmelized on the outside, I think probably with some sort of cheese, but it added such a unique and rich flavor to the deep dish format.
Overall Score: 30
