These three-inch-high pizzas can only be eaten with a knife and fork.. In Short Elbow-to-elbow pizza fans crowd the place waiting for their pies. Expect a 35- to 40-minute wait while a deep-dish bakes. If time is of the essence ask for a flat pizza. Crusts are softer than most and more like pie crust, made with flour shipped in from New York. Because the pies are so thick, the dominant motif is cheese, with sauce taking a backseat. A few hearty pastas are also on the menu.
