Chicago transplant and former rock musician, Rocco DiGrazia, brings a bite of the Windy City to Tucson at Rocco's Little Chicago. The choices include double-crusted pies and thin-crust, square cut options. With names like the Heart Attack—piles of meat and tons of cheese, and Fungus Humongous—mega-mushrooms, it's obvious this isn't health-conscious dining, but it's a delicious indulgence. A few sandwiches—also of mammoth proportions, are also offered and beer and wine are served. Quite likely, Rocco himself, will prepare your pizza.
