Chicago restaurant that makes Pizza Bowls?

Has anyone heard of a restaurant in Chicago that makes these? It was on the Travel Channel last year or so.

Thanks!

As a life long Chicagoan, I've never heard of a pizza bowl, are you sure you aren't thinking of deep dish pizza or Chicago style pizza?

Or you may be thinking of Oven Grinders. That is pizza served in a bowl/plate and quite different, I hear.

One of my kids is addicted to it and drives an hour North of his home for this entity.

Could it be Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder? They have a pizza pot pie that looks like the shape of a bowl.

Oh, thank you, everybody!

I think it might be Oven Grinders. I'm asking for a friend actually. I'm a loyal Lou Malnati's gal myself.

I'm almost positive that it is Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder's, when I first order a pizza there that is exactly what I though "hey look at that, it's a pizza bowl." As far as the food goes, it is just okay in my opinion, and the waits can be long, but a lot of people like the atmosphere and that it is across from that St. Valentines Day Massacre (although the appeal of eating across the street where a bunch of people where gunned down is lost on me).
