What's your favorite pizza for great quality toppings, cheese and crust?
I tend to prefer thin crust to deep dish. My favorites in the city are Balena, Coalfire and Piece. I like to mix things up with the toppings but particularly enjoy spicy sausage (i.e. nduja) and mushrooms (especially truffles).
Deep dish all the way, including the "pizza in the pan" single-crust style and the "stuffed" double-crust style. Sometimes I'm in the mood for the former, other times the latter. Love 'em both, way better than thin crust.
For pizza in the pan, Lou Malnati's, Pizano's, and the original locations of Uno and Due all turn out terrific pizza.
For stuffed pizza, Giordano's is excellent.

What, no love for the sauce? :)
Suparossa, Villa Napoli, & my long time favorite, Coluta's one block north of Harlem & belmont.
