[Chicago Pizza News] The Chicago Reader Picks Its Favorite Chicago Pizza

I'll be the first to admit that I'm having a slow work day, and having already read all of today's Obama-centric news stories, kept up to date with my blogs and purchased my new Chicago vehicle sticker a friend suggested I check out the Chicago Reader website for their "Best of Chicago 2008" selections.

Seems a bit early for Best of 2008 picks doesn't it? I mean, we're not even at the halfway mark for 2008 yet...

Anywho, I was kind of suprised to see their pick for Chicago's Best Pizza, though I must say the place they picked does serve a pretty fantastic pie...

Read about their choice right here, and then why not read the Chicago Pizza Club's review of that very same restaurant by clicking your mouse right here.

Do you agree or disagree? Let the endless debates begin!


  1. I just happened upon your blog and I love it!! I always say that there has never been a pizza that I didn't like!! I will add you to my favorite blogs and keep my eyes peeled for some new joints to try a pie at.

    getting fat

  2. CPC needs to re-invade Coalfire...especially considering most CPCers gave Pat's Pizza an equal or higher rating except for El Presidente and I. (I was feeling 16.7% merciful that day since it probably deserved a 6 not a 7.)

  3. You know what sounds like a great pizza?

    an average of <1 topping per slice, negligible sauce, flimsy charred crust, and a ridiculous price.

    when will this Neapolitan ass kissing stop?

  4. Ryan- I have yet to try Spacca Napoli or Coal Fire, but I appreciate your PiZzA RaGe!!

  5. Neapolitan is good... embrace it Ryan... come to the DARK SIDE!
