Lefty's Chicago Pizzeria in San Diego

After a day of moderate to heavy lifting (and way too many Huell Howser impressions), friends Mike and Alana treated us to the best Chicago-style deep dish pizza San Diego has to offer, Lefty's Chicago Pizzeria. We got one pepperoni deep dish pizza and one sausage deep dish pizza. Pictured is the pepperoni (I didn't get a photo of the sausage, but you should be able to extrapolate).

Some notes on the magnitude of this pizza:
- Large enough to be a doggy bed for a toy breed.
- Could be a trampoline for a 1-2 month infant.
- Would make a decent drummers bench, if flipped upside down.*
- Would make an adequate toilet seat cover with plenty of padding and tomato sauce rump warmer.
- Toy plastic dinosaurs could conceivably sink into and be trapped in the sauce and cheese a la the La Brea Tar Pits.

I am no expert of pizzas, particularly Chicago-style deep dish (I'm from LA), but I very much enjoyed the pepperoni pizza which had a layer of pepperonis an 1/8 inch thick right above the dough. But I enjoyed the sausage not so much. The sausage was slightly blander and not what I would expect of pizza sausage. On the other hand, if there were whole Italian sausages hidden within, hint, hint...

In any case, if you find yourself in San Diego with a hankering for a pizza pie, I suggest you give this place a try. Closed Mondays.
