From the thick and saucy deep dish most associated with Chicago to the thin and crispy tavern style, the Windy City may just be the best pizza city in the U.S. (New Yorkers, commence freak-out…now.) You can find virtually any form with any topping imaginable. Here is a selection of our favorite pizza joints in Chicago, whether you’re craving a buttery deep dish, chewy Neapolitan or crackling thin crust.
Owned and operated by third-generation Neapolitan Nella Grassano, Pizzeria da Nella is bringing a slice (literally) of Naples to Lincoln Park. Cooked quickly in a hand-tiled wood-burning oven, Grassano’s pizzas are both classic Italian and unexpectedly novel with pies like Tonno e Cipolla—tomato sauce, mozzarella, black olive, Genova tuna, onions and basil, or Mare & Monti—tomato sauce, mozzarella, baby shrimp, porcini mushrooms, olive oil and parsley.
