Best Thin-Crust Pizza - 2003
Gaspare's Pizza House and Italian Restaurant
We're Chicago-style deep-dish pizza lovers through and through. Plus we prefer pesto to tomato sauce any day. So imagine our surprise when Gaspare's thin-crust, tomato-sauced veggie pie took our breath away. Not overly sauced, not overly cheesed (and we do love cheese), it allowed the toppings to take precedence. Delectable. Start off your meal with Gaspare's Special Salad; the house-made dressing is a charmer, not too oily. Yes, we know, it's beginning to sound like "Goldilocks and the Three Bears": Not too heavy, not too light, the food here is juuuuussst right. The right price, too -- a duo can split a salad and pizza, plus have bevvies and dessert, and including tip it's under $20 apiece.
