This week, Jon Stewart threw the gauntlet down in the great NYC/Chicago pizza debate, brilliant eviscerating deep-dish pizza, that bready pizza-esque regional concoction that sometimes resembles pizza, but clearly is not pizza. Stewart's dismantling made waves across the internet (and provoked a response from the mayor of Chicago), but it also inspired some curiosity on the part of innocent New Yorkers, who wondered if maybe they should give this deep dish thing a chance. So if you happen to be in the mood to eat seven loaves of bread, here are some excellent places around NYC to try it.

  • 1. Pizzeria Uno, 220 East 86th Street, New York, NY 10028
  • 2. Pizzeria Uno, 9201 Fourth Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11209
  • 3. Pizzeria Uno, 37-11 35th Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101
  • 4. Pizzeria Uno, 432 Columbus Ave., New York, NY 10024
  • 5. Pizzeria Uno, 107-16 70th Road, Forest Hills, NY 11375
  • 6. Pizzeria Uno, 39-02 Bell Blvd, Bayside, NY 11361
  • 7. Go back to Chicago you jagbag

Okay okay, if you really do want to try a non-Uno place, check out Big Al's Chicago Style Pizza or Gio's Pizzeria—or better yet, just toss a bunch of pizza-like ingredients into a giant tub of bread, it'll last you through winter! Just be warned: you may have to use a fork and knife to actually handle this monstrous concoction, because it's NOT REALLY PIZZA.*

*This doesn't mean it's bad—but if you can't fold it, it's not pizza, and it'll never be pizza, and go back to Chicago, jagbag.
