Chicago is well known for its deep dish pizza, an iconic staple that is synonymous with the city. A new festival coming to the city this summer, called the “Chicago Pizza Festival, is aiming to show that there are many other types of pizza in the city that aren't just Deep Dish but are just as good.
This festival is spearheaded by local food reporter Steve Dolinsky, more commonly known as the “Hungry Hound” or “The Food Guy”, and who’s memorable plaques can be found all across the city. Dolinsky has distilled his years of research, calories, and restaurant tabs into a two-day pizza festival featuring 40 handpick pizzerias spanning two days at Plumbers Union Hall in the West Loop.
The festival will feature 10 massive pizza ovens for the experts to bake their pies, each offering different pizzas from pizzerias across the city. Some of the pizzerias taking part in the festival include Pat's Pizzeria, Bob’s Pizza, Bonci Pizza, and Jimmy’s Pizza Cafe. The Festival will take place July 23rd and 24th and will be open from noon to 9 P.M. each day.
