🍕Diving into Deep Dish 🍕 . . . Another food trend here in Toronto, is the recent popularity of Chicago/Detroit style deep dish pizza. There has been one main pizzeria that has lead the way, and quite a few other restaurants that have now hopped on board for the ride. . . Maybe it’s the long winters here that call for a pizza that’s even more hearty, rich and filling than the average slice, but deep dish has definitely made a name for itself in this city and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. . . . STAY TUNED FOR MORE: I’ve partnered with @hostmilano as one of their Canadian Ambassadors 🇨🇦 for their international hospitality event in Milan, Italy 🇮🇹 from October 18th – 22nd.
