When it comes to biscuits and BBQ, Atlanta has a myriad of options. But with deep dish, the places you can go are much more limited. However, there are a few spots around town serving up a ‘za that are as close as you can get to the Chicago style slices you’ll find in the Windy City if you can’t make the trip there yourself.
Pan-cooked with an end crust that’s a mile high, Rosati’s Pizza is one of the few establishments in Atlanta that’s taking on the deep dish pizza delicacy. You’ll love the chunky tomato sauce and thick, buttery crust. Their Italian beef sandwich is also on point and their thin crust pizzas are a delight as well.
Chicago Pizza is a total gem in Smyrna serving up thick crusted, deep dish pizza goodness. It’s a great place to share a beer and watch a game, with excellent drink prices as well.
It doesn’t get much closer to the real thing than Nancy’s Pizza, a Chicago-based chain and the gold standard for deep dish pizza in Atlanta. Perfectly layered with the prime cheese to sauce to topping ratio, the deep dish pizza is the perfect cheat meal that’ll put you right into a food coma. Locations in Campcreek, Midtown, Buckhead, Dunwoody, Roswell, and John’s Creek.
Nina & Rafi on the Beltline serves a Detroit-style pie, not Chicago deep dish style, but their pie should still satisfy your cheese and carb cravings. You’ll love the sauciness and the thick and crispy yet chewy crust. Order their meatball appetizer, too!
