Hi all,
My brother is coming home from Afghanistan and is flying into BWI. He really would like to have deep dish pizza. He will only be in the area for a short period of time, so I was wondering if anyone knew of a place close to the airport that serves deep dish pizza. Any help you can provide is appreciated!

Thanks!

    The nearest place to BWI that has decent deep dish pizza is in Chicago. Just not something we have around here.

      tl;dr: Order through mail. Giordano's or Gino's.

      Otherwise I guess you try Uno's. If he's been away a long time and isn't neccesarily and afficionado/purist, then it'd probably fit the bill.

        If Uno's will fit the bill, there's one at the Inner Harbor, a 15-20 minute drive from BWI.

          There's also one in Ellicott City right down Rt. 100. Parking would be easier there.

      I give it 3 1/2 to four stars. In our view the best pizza in the Columbia area, all hand thrown. They make a quite acceptable Sicilian deep dish pizza. This is a strip mall place run by real Italians and not fancy. They have pasta, some seafood, and salads, as well. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. No alcohol, but soccer is almost always on the big screen.

        Sicilian isn't Chicago deep dish.
