Photo: April 5th is National Deep Dish Pizza Day to celebrate Chicago deep dish pizza—originated by Uno’s — and the efforts by Uno Chicago Grill to bring deep dish pizza to the entire United States. The original restaurant, which opened in 1943, began serving deep dish as a way to make sure hungry families could get a “real meal” when it came to pizza. Up to that point, pizza was hardly more than a snack. Annually celebrated on the anniversary of the day (5 April 1979) that the first restaurant outside Chicago opened (in Boston, Massachusetts).
