Though many Michiganders risk their lives by swimming across the lake for a slice of Chicago-style pizza, Chicago 7 Pizzeria brings the Windy City's beloved deep dish closer to home. After making dough and sauce from scratch, cooks bake each 2-inch-thick pizza for up to 45 minutes?an authentic process that lets layers of crust and cheese cook over the bed of toppings hidden underneath. The pizzeria also specializes in hand-tossed pizzas topped with everything from barbecue chicken to artichoke hearts. Slices of the deep-dish and hand-tossed pies can be gobbled up at lunchtime, as can their burgers, subs, and hot dogs that, in another homage to the city across the lake, can also be served Chicago-style.
