The doughsmiths at Doughboys Pizza load Chicago-style rounds with gobs of cheese and toppings before firing them in a brick oven and pouring more than 25 types of brews to accompany slices. The menu’s double-decker pies flaunt blankets of mozzarella piled with more than 20 add-ons including fresh mushrooms, roasted chicken, and Chicago imports such as italian beef and pepperoni shipped straight from the Windy City via hang-glider ($16+). Diners can also request thin-crust pies ($12.50+) or dig into specialty ‘zas bedecked with combos such as bacon cheeseburger, which cooks strew with bacon, ground beef, cheddar, mozzarella, onion, and tomato ($14–$17.50). Sandwiches ($4.75–$5.50) bookend Chicago tastes between a bun, and the steamed Vienna links of Wrigley dogs come buried, like a peckish pirate's treasure, beneath mustard, relish, onion, tomato, celery salt, and a pickle spear ($2.65).
From the father-and-daughter team in the back office, to the eldest son calling shots in the kitchen, Perazelli's is truly a family-run operation. Cooks craft executive chef Eric Perazelli's menu of classic Italian dishes, from homemade meatballs to slow-braised chianti short ribs. The chefs are also skilled in preparing dishes for diners with gluten-free, vegetarian, and photosynthetic diets. Inside the dining area often overseen by eldest daughter Christi, diners split large hand-tossed pizzas covered in toppings such as steak and gorgonzola cheese, chasing each bite with sips from bottles of wine from behind the full bar.
