Our Hungry Hound lists his top three favorite pizza joints in Chicago.

It's made from scratch with triple-raised Sicilian bread-type dough; a homemade sauce consisting of olive oil, fresh garlic, onions, green peppers, whole plum tomatoes and a special blend of cheese; sausage made from prime Boston butts; and doorknob-size, whole fresh mushrooms.

The pizza pot pie is cooked in a bowl and flipped table-side by the server. It comes in two sizes: a half-pounder and a one-pound serving. You can even bring home a frozen pie to enjoy later.
