In 1943, Ike Sewell created the Chicago 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. As a result, Sewell opened Pizzeria Uno®, a new and different kind of option for the Ohio and Wabash neighborhood. It grew so popular that he opened a second location, Pizzeria Due®, across the street in 1955. The continued growth of the concept, and of the ranks of Chicago deep dish fans, finally led the company to open locations elsewhere in the country, starting in 1979 in Boston. Now, Uno has over 200 locations worldwide and is celebrating its 65th Anniversary.
