Order a pizza at Rocco's Little Chicago in Tucson
, and you can bet you'll take one heavy pie home. Rocco's specializes in deep dish pizzas that don't skimp on crust, cheese, or toppings. One slice at Rocco's is comparable to two slices at other pizza places, which produce skimpy, limp slices that simply don't satisfy. You won't have that problem here. With names like the Fungus Humongous (the deep dish version features savory pieces of portobello mushrooms drowning in real mozzarella cheese) and the Heart Attack (heavy on the meats and cheeses), it's clear that this pizza is not for lightweights. Known around town for the rotating one-liners on the old-fashioned sign outside the small but cozy restaurant, make sure to stop by Rocco's on your next pizza expedition in central Tucson. It's as close to Chicago as you can get without getting on a plane.
