    This being Tokyo you have more options than possibly around other parts. This place is like a NYC pizza place where you can buy it by the slice and it's NYC.

    There's a craft beer place that has a few shops around Tokyo called Devil Craft. They serve Chicago style pizza there as well a range of American and Japanese craft beers. When I'm in charge of organizing a 飲み会(nomikai - drinking party) with co-workers and clients etc. I usually take them there. Their minds are blown by the quality of the beer and how good Chicago Style Pizza is.

    Really you can get anything you want in Tokyo. I've even found American style hamburgers that are fucking amazing. This city is most likely the easiest for a western person to live in in the Far East.

    I typed this on my phone so fuck proof reading.

    As a Texan, I concur, though most of the people here like thin crust.

    Thin crust for me, but even a little more dough is ok. Chicago style deep-dish is just basically a bread cake with some pizza toppings you can barely taste because of ALL THAT DOUGH. ;)

    I guess so, but every deep-dish I've ever had (I'll admit, not very many) have been pretty lousy.

    As a former cook, but a fan food that people actually really like eating, rather then just food that looks like art. The goal with deep dish is to have a balance between sauce, toppings, and crust. The crust needs to form a deep dish (shocker right?) for lots of sauce and toppings. The sauce should soak the crust around half way through and leave enough on top to form that distinct layer between crust and toppings. Then it should have enough toppings that a slice or two of what used to be called a pizza pie for a damn good reason fills you up. Toppings are expensive though and making people eat more slices means you sell more pizzas. Look for that and you find pizza nirvana.

    As the resident Italy-connoisseur of BuF I have to say this looks horrible, the menu (only looked into one branch) sounds horribly unhealthy and really un-Italian. The toppings on those pizzas look like pure industrial sludge. Pizza has to be ultra thin and crunchy and the toppings have to be as simple and natural as possible. If I want to eat dough I have a sandwich. My families' house in Italy comes with a circa 250 year old forno, I know I am spoiled especially since I have been slicing for the past couple days fresh prosciutto stagionato from a huge piece for my daily sandwiches. :D

    I also got some air dried salsicca but I am keeping them till the ham is gone. I won't make it to italy till next year so I gotta household.

    Italians that came to America made up these pizzas too. There is other pizzas besides Napolia.

    I admit it doesn't look great but it tastes amazing.

    Seriously didn't intend to turn this into a pizza debate that is a discussion that could get more heated and hostile then any religion or politics thread.

    Read this - see Italy-
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_pizza_varieties_by_country
    Too lazy?
    The point is that deep dish or Chicago style is actually just Sicilian pizza. Neapolitan pizza is extremely thin while the pizza in Rome is generally somewhere between the 2. It's all Italian. As long as you aren't doing cheap and fast, pizza in the US is pretty much just Italian pizza. Gino's East was started by an Italian immigrant and those are his recipes. Anyways, I will leave you to play with you meat. :p

    can we just be real for a moment and agree that Chicago 'deep dish' is not pizza?
    get over it. it's not pizza.

    that doesn't mean it can't be delicious.
    but stop it Chicago. just stop it. you're not pizza. you're some kind of lasagna pie hybrid.

    Yeah, but history of it is so long. I do have found memories of being at Gino's East and eating so much of it that I broke out into a cold sweat from being so stuff and being so full in made it hard to walk. I literally had to walk it off for about 40 minutes. It may have been my most American moment.

    It's pretty cool. Very rarely do I wear it in public that someone doesn't offer up a fistbump or look at it and smile. I have the red team one too but for some reason blue gets a better response.

    I have the blue one also. Quality material. Most comfy shirt I own.

    I rather wish it didn't have words on the back, but meh, still my favorite shirt.
