Chicago style pizza in L.A?

With all this talk of NY style pizza coming to L.A I'm dying to find out if there's anywhere in town that does a good Chicago deep dish style? B.Js and Taste of Chicago in Burbank just don't cut it in my opinion. Any other places I'm missing?

  1. Try StoneFire on La Cienega above Melrose. The classic is more tomatoey than overly cheesy, but really good, and they also have "pizza happy hour",but I think only for the thin crusts.

    1. My favorites are Georgio's near the TJs in Studio City, and Prizzi's at Franklin and Bronson in Hollywood.

      Neither are up to the standards of a great Chicago deep-dish, but they're very good.

      Prizzi's Piazza
      5923 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028

      Georgio's California Pizza and Pasta
      11992 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604

        1. A recent thread on this subject here:

          Plus this has at least one reply that links to a place called Banducci's that has gotten really good reviews (for the most part) from hounds searching for Chicago style pizza.

            Yeah, I gotta try Banducci's. Linked.

            They rub some people the wrong way, but I have no complaints after ordering deliery about once a week for the past six months. The Chicago pizza is very good, I am no Chicago pizza expert though.
