Eating an entire deep dish pizza (even with hungry friends) can be quite the undertaking, so luckily there’s Art of Pizza, which offers some very good deep dish by the slice. The best is their stuffed pizza - it’s the same style as Lou Malnati’s, but with way more cheese. It’s a counter service operation, BYOB, and their Lakeview location feels like a partially finished basement from the ’80s. But it’s large and great for groups, or even just a slice or two by yourself.
