This pizzeria comes from the group behind Union Pizzeria in Evanston, with hearty squares of Detroit-style pizza and a thick crust packed with air bubbles. You can grab a whole pie or a quarter of any you choose—we’re keen on the mushroom, with leeks, walnut pesto and mushrooms. The crispy crust with melty cheese tops the whole thing off.
The rectangular slices have an airy and light interior, with shatteringly crisp sides. It’s a — dare I say— more balanced and fine-tuned creation than deep dish, and one that doesn’t require a serious nap afterwards.
