Deep Dish Pizza

Chicago deep dish pizza is one of Illinois' many contributions to the culinary heritage of America. But you don't have to go all the way to the Windy City to enjoy authentic deep dish pizza. Our real estate agents are pleased to report there are many options all throughout Central Illinois.

National Deep Dish Pizza Day is celebrated every year on April 5, so there's never been a better time to try out some "Chicago-style" pizza right here in your own backyard. From trendy local spots to the most historic names and brands, there's something for everyone.

Let's take a look at some of your delicious deep dish options:
