When you think of Chicago pizza, most people think of the birthplace of deep dish pizza. A thick, filling pizza, which fills you up within two slices. Best eaten with friends and family, here are some of Welcome Inn Manor’s favorite places to get your beloved slice of pizza.
Your Favorite Chicago Pizza Places
Chicago Pizza– This Northside pizza place delivers early into the morning. In fact, Chicago Pizza is open every day from 11 AM – 5 AM for delivery, and have regular hours for their three locations. A true deep dish pizza company. Recently, the company started creating gluten free pizzas in addition to their traditional fare. They also ship pizzas across the country for those who out of state in the mood for some deep dish pizza.
Giordano’s-Based on a 200 year old recipe from Torino, Italy, Giordano’s one of the best ranked pizza spots in Chicago since opening in 1974. One of the cool new innovations they just came up with was a Giordano’s food truck. This new truck is traversing the city of Chicago to deliver piping hot, stringy cheese mini pizzas to Chicagoans in need of their pizza fix.
Lou Malnatis– Started in 1971, Lou Malnatis was one of the first major pizzerias to open in the suburbs of Chicago as well as in the city. The first Malnatis opened in Lincolnwood on St. Patrick’s Day. As Lou was fond of telling people, only an Italian would open an Italian restaurant in a Jewish suburb on an Irish holiday. Their deep dish pizza creations redefined the Chicago pizza market over the past forty years.
Pizzeria Uno- the true birthplace of the deep dish pizza. Ike Sewell created the first deep dish pizza in 1943. The creation was a hit with customers, and Pizzeria Uno soon ran out of space serving their customers. Instead of expanding, they bought the space across the street and created Pizzeria Due. They are not a franchise, so if you want to eat the original Chicago deep dish pizzeria, you will need to go to these downtown locations. On a side note, the only other location for this franchise was Su Casa, the Mexican restaurant they set up around the corner.
Gino’s East-Founded in 1966, when a few friends decided they were tired of traffic in the city. Gi no’s East has been a traffic destination for many hungry pizza pie lovers ever since. The other thing patrons love is the fact that Gino’s East encourages customers to write graffiti style messages and etchings throughout the restaurant. A trademark at all Gino’s restaurants.
