You want to send something distinctively Chicago to your friends in other cities, and Chicago Deep Dish Pizza sounds great, but even though you’ve managed to bake up a really good deep dish pizza at home (thanks in part to this wonderful website), you may not have your own subzero freezer and unlimited supply of dry ice and packing materials. Also, you’re thinking, “dang, I’d have to get up out of my comfy chair and go ship the darn thing too,” so it’s perfectly reasonable to exclaim loudly into your mobile device, and probably a confused pet or roommate,
“I could ORDER frozen Chicago deep dish, stuffed, or tavern style pizzas and let THEM ship them nation-wide FOR me!
Thank you, Convenient Online Interweb Shopping Dealie!”
You know what? That’s totally cool with me.
I don’t often order frozen pizzas because I prefer to make my own, so I won’t make any official recommendations, but here’s a list of places that ship frozen pizzas:
BTW, I don’t make a penny by telling you about these, but this is the kind of information that I think you’d want to know.
If you know any other Chicago pizza restaurants that ship their pizzas nationwide, please let me know and I will consider adding them to the list. I will try to keep this list current as I get updated on availability.
