Bob Sirott

CHICAGO – MARCH 06: Deep dish pizzas are prepared at Connie’s Pizza on March 6, 2008 in Chicago, Illinois. The cost of flour, a key ingredient in making pizza dough, has more than doubled in the past year because of high wheat prices caused by strong worldwide demand and increased price speculation.

Nick Kindelsperger, food critic for the Chicago Tribune, joined Bob Sirott to discuss Chicago-style pizza spots, where to go if you want just one slice, fine-dining in Lincoln Park serving ice cream with caviar, and tacos. Kindelsperger says newcomer Uncle Jerry’s Pizza, located on 133 W Main Street in Cary, has a deep dish that’s worth a taste. Got a taste for tacos? Kindelsperger suggests heading to the Midway area for taquerias including the reopened El Solazo. And find out who has the best Italian beef according to Nick.
