Photoblog Day 14: Something you craved today

I know this Photoblog was supposed to be an October thing but obviously I'm taking my time. So amidst a holiday diet I thought I should blog about I craving I have had for years now, and hopefully for now try to get it out of my system. For now I said :P

Chicago-style deep dish pizza! *heavenly music playing in the background*

Chicago-style pizza is a deep-dish pizza style developed in Chicago. Chicago-style pizza has a buttery crust up to three inches tall at the edge, slightly higher than the large amounts of cheese and chunky tomato sauce, acting as a large bowl. The term also refers to "stuffed" pizza, another Chicago style. While in Chicago most pizzerias serve thin-crust pizza, generally in a style characteristic to the city, the term Chicago-style pizza is used to describe this deep-dish style of pizza. (Thank you Wikipedia)

Some may know that I was born in Chicago and have lived half of my life there ( I moved to Greece when I was 12 and I'm now 25, still in denial of my age though). So I used to eat Chicago-style pizza all the time! And especially at Lou Malnati's, I'd go there all the time as a kid (cause my dad would drag me there so he could watch basketball games and such). But once I would get that heavenly slice of pizza packed with all the goodness of an overload of mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce, I was in pure bliss. A Shirley Temple to wash it down and I was one happy kid. But it's been years since I've had such a thing so I guess you can understand that fact that my craving has been going on for years. I've made it myself a couple times and it turned out amazing but still lacking the awesomeness of the original thing. In 2011 when I visit Chicago I know I'm packing on extra weight due to some serious pizza-whoring.
