Lou Malnati’s

No discussion about Chicago pizza can even begin without a shout out to Lou Malnati’s. This icon has been part of the Chicagoland restaurant scene since 1971, where Lou himself began serving up the same perfect blend of tomatoes and mozzarella on his flaky, butter crust that diehards swear by today.

Spacca Napoli

With thin crust flavors including everything from fresh arugula to prosciutto, there’s something for everyone to explore and enjoy.

Roots Handmade Pizza

Taste the difference of a pizza made from scratch using fresh, local ingredients. Roots Handmade Pizza serves up pizzas the whole family can enjoy with their hand-tossed, dark-roasted malt crusts stealing the show in every bite. Don’t forget to try their house-made sodas and root beers!
