Best Detroit-Style: Paulie Gee’s in Logan Square
Try the pie that won Paulie Gee’s the U.S. Pizza Cup: a pizza with three types of cheese, cupping pepperoni, bacon jam, and hot honey.
Best NYC Slice: Benny’s Pizza in Pilsen
Grab a big floppy slice of cheese, sausage, or pepperoni for under $5.
Grab plant-based pizzas made with soy or cashew cheeses from the South Side spot, or head north for vegan margherita and BBQ pies.

The Far North Side spot's 24-inch thin crust pie could easily feed a whole party — or you for a few days.
Best Deep-Dish: Pequod’s in Lincoln Park
