Apart Pizza Company
Apart Pizza Company approaches pizza making with artistic care and diligence, training all their chefs for up to six months on techniques for hand rolling the housemade dough into ultrathin crusts and balancing optimal blends of sauce, cheese, and toppings. Each chef's personal style and unique skills shine through in the resulting pizzas—specialty pies with inspired combinations of tangy-produce, savory-meat, and gourmet-cheese toppings that have been described by the Chicago Tribune as "perhaps the best in the city."
The staff is as dedicated to their pizza as they are to their community, supporting local artists, theaters, and cultural groups through creative efforts, mentoring, and promotional partnerships. The pizza makers have their own plot in the local Montrose Green community garden, where they hope to grow their own organic produce. They also strive to create a communal atmosphere within the pizzeria itself, encouraging guests to stay and chat in the cozy seating area rather than taking pizzas to go and eating in the privacy of the Soviet-history section of the nearest library.
