The Daily Meal has researched and compiled a list of the best deep-dish pizzas in the United States outside of Chicago.

It may not seem possible, but good deep-dish does exist outside of Chicago. Although it’s mainly made by Chicagoans who have fled the harsh winters of the homeland in favor of year-round sunny skies, there are other people who have honed the craft of a good deep-dish pie without the benefit of Chicago roots.

Let’s face it, all pizza places offering deep-dish can’t be Lou’s.
