Chicago is home of the deep dish pizza so there is certainly no shortage of pizzerias in town. And while we love our thick crust pies stuffed to the brim with cheese, there are also plenty of places that serve up other styles—from New York to New Haven to Neapolitan—that might make you question your allegiance. Check out the first of our maps to Chicago's best spots to grab a slice or whole pie, starting with the North Side (including some suburbs).

Did we leave out one of your favorites? Let us know in the comments below.
