Chicago Street Pizza owner Emin Aljic wants you to have as many toppings on your pizza as you want. Though it takes 40 minutes for each deep-dish pie to bake, he makes sure the wait is worthwhile by letting patrons choose any number of his 16 available toppings for one fixed price. In addition to the monstrous Midwestern-style pies, diners can also pile thin-crust pizzas with their favorite ingredients or let the chefs anoint either crust style with one of their specialty topping combinations. A BYOB policy rules the dining room, which reflects the menu's Chicago vibe with Cubs and Blackhawks posters and italian-beef sandwiches delivered to tables via ferris wheel.
Drawing on years of experience in the kitchens of Nobu, Nine Steak House, Nove Italiano, and Ampm Restaurant, Chef Tony assembles a host of fresh ingredients to craft his artisanal pizzas. He enhances the crispy prosciutto pizza with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh basil and layers provolone cheese and yukon potatoes over the marinated chicken pizza. Additionally, gourmet salads provide an opportunity to sample house-made dressings and roasted-garlic vinaigrettes without the awkwardness of ordering them “on the rocks.”
The family behind Broadway Pizza and Pasta has been baking New York-style pies since 1985. Fresh ingredients are the foundation of the restaurant's Italian-American eats, adding robust flavor to the house's pastas and homemade marinara. Signature dishes include the lasagna calzone, with three cheeses and homemade meat sauce, and the white spinach pizza, a sauceless pie with two cheeses and fresh spinach, tomatoes, and garlic. A BYOB policy encourages diners to linger over their meals, and a 4 p.m. opening time on weeknights discourages early birds from becoming even earlier birds.
What do an angry Italian, a buffalo, and Vanna White have in common? Probably very little, aside from the fact that they are all specialty pizzas at Olive's Pizza. The long list of specialty pies encompasses everything from a basic margherita to sweet and sour chicken. For those who like to be in charge, build-your-own pizzas are available, and pastas, subs, salads, and strombolis are also on the menu. Olive's Pizza is BYOB.
