California style or Chicago deep dish in NY?

This may sound sacrilegious, but anyone know where I can find either California style pizza with unusual toppings or Chicago Deep Dish pizzas that are good in Queens or Manhattan?
Of course, not including chains like California Pizza kitchen or Uno Chicago Pizza. Thanks!

    I have heard of it being done poorly around here, but never well.

      That's sad. Not everyone like NY style slices.

      Agreed that no pizza only place does it well. One of my favorite thin pizzas is at Mercer Kitchen: tuna sashimi with ginger and wasabi pizza. Unbelievable, basically wasabi paste instead of tomato sauce. I characterize Cali pizza as light not like the Wolfgang Puck heavy pizzas.
