    Well I just ordered some Malnati's pizza from Gold Belly. Interested to see what the hype's about. 
    What type of pizza did you get?  I'll be eager to hear the reviews.

    Sausage, pep, cheese, and veggie. Having them for the wife's little bday get together this weekend. She likes the deep dish. 
    Did you go with the sausage patty or just regular sausage???  Sausage patty is the way to go for Lou's. I've also heard good things about the frozen pies....we send them to my mother in law in New Mexico every now and then.  Enjoy!

    It just said "sausage." Are patties just sort of shaped like peperoni's or something instead of crumbled sausage pieces?

    It's a complete layer of sausage covering the whole pie.  Pretty sure the default for deep dish is the sausage patty.  It's the best.

    Regarding Lou's...perhaps I should have planned this better. Is one pizza for one person? Or are they filling enough for two people?

    Got her parents and sister and brother in law coming over and have 4 pizzas. Thinking none of the women will have more than a couple slices....

    ^One pizza per person would be too much unless you ordered four personal sized pizzas.  Four medium pizzas would leave a lot of leftovers.  Assuming they're all deep dish, a couple of good sized slices will be more than enough for the average person.  Definitely filling and easy to overeat because it's damn good and easy to say "just one more."

    Wife and I ordered and attempted to eat a personal, each, at Lous.  That was the birth of of the term Taking a Lou's.  
    We should have split one.
    Tasted great but it was too much to shove down on a sweltering hot Chicago summer day.

    My wife and I got an appy and split one cheese pie at Lou s and it was more than enough.

    Two grown, potentially inebriated men, have never finished a regular deep dish pie at any of the spots in Chitown.  Each slice is like eating lasagne in a crust (albeit with no pasta). We have come close at Pequods, but not at Lou, Uno (throwback), or Giordano's.
  • RiotZactRiotZact Posts: 5,928
    Not to distract from the Lou’s talk (you’re going to love the sausage patty Juggler. It’s life changing), but I had a pretty amazing pie tonight. Probably my favorite white pizza I’ve ever had.

    From Circles + Squares in Philly:

    Sausage, marinated red peppers, ricotta, garlic and gran moravia (like parm)

    I'm not a big white pizza fan (love the sauce) but that looks really good!

    It really was amazing. The peppers were heavily marinated, which I really liked a lot. And you can’t even see the ricotta, it was hidden in big pockets under all of the other stuff. I’m very sad that this was only a weekly special because I would get it very often if it was a regular menu item.

    "Just one more" going for that 3rd slice always seems like a great idea at the time.  And then it pretty much puts you right to sleep.  May have to order Lou's this weekend after all this talk....haven't had one in awhile.

    If Eddie's Chicago shows don't get postponed/cancelled, there is a Lou's sausage pizza in my near future.

    If I recall correctly this is what I did. I felt pretty damn full after just 2, but my brain was telling me that wasn’t enough. So I forced a 3rd one down and I felt like I was going to burst. So damn good though.

    That’s interesting. In Philly tomato pie is something way different. It’s square cut and very thick with no cheese except maybe a dusting of parmesan.

    That looks incredible though.

    It’s freezing out on Long Island, football on Saturday so decided to get some pizza & just chill inside

    grandpa small 
    it’s vodka sauce, fresh mozzarella, camelized onions, & toasted breadcrumbs… it’s so good

    sicilian slice & some meatballs

    That looks Bomb, Mike, but agree with Zach.  Tomato pie is something  very different,  here.

    CRO, looks great.

    That pizza with the carmelized onions and the toasted breadcrumbs looks amazing. I have never seen toasted breadcrumbs on a pizza before. Now I want to try it.

    I had to look it up, these are “Trenton tomato pies” hence the difference.  

    Brett there is another killer pizza shop literally 200 yards down the road from Papa s called DeLorenzo s.  They also serve killer Trenton style tomato pies.  I love that place too but prefer papa s.  Papa s is like walking back in time (cash only) and delorenzo s is a modern place.
