Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder

When discussing Chicago pizza, it's usually the deep dish that gets all the press. But the thing is, there are so many other choices the city offers. One of the more interesting selections is the pizza pot pie from Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder. That's right, a pizza pot pie.

Upon arriving at your table, it doesn't really resemble anything like a pizza.

But then your server deftly flips the doughy shape over and carefully removes the pot.

And behold! Here is your pizza pot pie. 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 blend of cheeses; sausage made from prime boston butts (?) and giant mushrooms. Depicted above is the half-pounder. There is also an unthinkable one-pound pot pie on the menu. And I thought restaurant's name was a mouthful.
