I went to Midway Pizza on Freret last night with a couple of friends. This place bills itself as the only Deep Dish/Chicago Style in New Orleans.
We started with bread sticks – there was a nice, gooey layer of cheese but the sticks were made from the pizza crust and were just a little too dense for my taste. Also, the accompanying sauce was pretty darn bland.
The pizza itself was plenty good – lots of cheese, a good quantity of toppings and a peppery quality to the sauce. The dough was chewy and had a lot of mouth appeal.
Because the pizza is deep dish, most folks will be fine with two slices. The three of us split a 14” and only one piece was left over.
The waitstaff was very friendly, with a number of them stopping by the table to check on things. They were quick with refills and fixing our rocking table.
If you’re a deep dish fan, this is definitely a place to go.
