What to get: Deep Dish Malnati Chicago Classic
Price: Large: $24.75
Anna’s take: I’d never had Chicago-style pizza before trying the new Lou Malnati’s in Carmel. I ordered the Deep Dish Malnati Chicago Classic, which is made with lean sausage, extra cheese and vine-ripened tomato sauce on Malnati’s special buttercrust. It was amazing. I picked up my order for carryout, and when you do so, staff will ask if it’s OK not to pre-cut the pizza. Although it is a bit of a hassle to cut a such a thick pizza at home, it is worth it so the toppings don’t spill while you drive. Even then, the toppings shifted a few times at a few turns during the ride home. If you like deep-dish pizza, definitely give Lou Malnati’s a shot.
