Masa of Echo Park, Chicago Deep Dish Pizza for Hipsters
What can I say about a ten pound Chicago deep dish pizza that the ten pounds can’t say for itself?
It has great taste. Full bodied power flavor. It’s pure uncut cheese gooey goodness and I never had so much fun twirling a fettuccine sized string of heaven around my fork.
The sauce is tomato chunky, sweet and savory. The crust is deep, hearty, flakey and firm.
This really is a pie. Not just a pizza. An experience not a meal.
My girlfriend and I would lean in, do a twenty second slow sumptuous chew, lean back, stare as each others eyes roll over then lean in again. Masa is a cheese lover’s paradise and like all good drugs you can’t help but to hit it more than you should but, fuck it, ride the snake, sleep it off and pretend it didn’t happen the following morning. It works for me.
Forks up, knives down. Thank you Masa. My pusher man.
