Patxi’s: No Need to Hit the Zachary’s

Patxi’s, reports ron c, is as satisfying as that outpost of Chicago deep-dish pizza goodness, Zachary’s. The two main differences:

1. Patxi’s makes a more traditionally Chicagoan cornmeal crust, compared to Zachary’s more flaky, buttery crust.

2. Paxti’s sauce is smoother and more garlicky than Zachary’s chunky rendition.

Patxi’s pizzas are made with fresh, high quality ingredients. They are, however, a bit pricey–$16 for a small pizza that could feed two.
