Looks like Rockford's newest pizza joint might also have the best deep dish in town.

That is if you like deep dish. For some, deep dish pizza is an acquired taste. Some eat deep dish and swear by it just because it's where they're from.

For me, a native Chicagoan, deep dish pizza is part of my life. However, I'll take a nice tavern style pie if I had the choice.

When I heard Lou Malnati's was opening in town, I knew it was time to see if their pizza would change my mind and help me embrace my roots at the same time hoping Lou's would bring some Chi-city to Rockford to those who've been dying for it.

Where should go I next? Have I missed a Rockford pizza place I need to try? Hit me up on Twitter or Facebook.
