Eat Pizza Like A Star In Chicago

In the mood for gourmet pizza but not excited about leaving the comfort of your Mondial River West apartment in Chicago? Here are a few local pizzerias that have gained national attention for their specialty pizzas.

Pequod’s Pizza

This pizzeria’s claim to fame was appearing on an episode of “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”. The legendary pan pizza has won many local and national awards, as well as brought visitors from near and far to try it. The laid-back atmosphere is perfect for a casual get together with friends and family or a night out to relax. The wide variety of toppings, such as Canadian bacon, jalapenos, and bacon are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria

Fans of Throwdown with Bobby Flay should already be familiar with this establishment. All of the pizzas are made from scratch and are know for their flaky, buttery crust. Fresh mozzarella and vine-ripened tomatoes pack a big punch of flavor in every pizza. You can choose to either build your own creation with toppings such as sausage, green peppers, and mushrooms or choose a specialty option such as The Chicago Classic.

Gino’s East

Just like Pequod’s Pizza, this pizzeria was featured on the hit show, “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”, and is known for having some of the best deep-dish pizza in the city. For 50 years, this place has been extremely popular with locals and celebrities alike, with many offering up their John Hancock on the infamous wall. Hollywood heavyweights have been known to leave their signature on the wall after dining at Gino’s. The dough is made from a secret recipe and is topped with mozzarella cheese, a tangy tomato sauce and a variety of toppings such as grilled chicken and anchovies.
