Overview

Chicago is a pizza town, but there's so much more than deep-dish! Based on the book, "Pizza City USA," by 13-time James Beard Award-winning food journalist Steve Dolinsky, we offer four tours every weekend, each one getting you inside the kitchens, meeting the owners and tasting four different styles of pizzas in three hours. Saturdays: West Loop Pizza Crawl (11 am); Pizza Bus (11 am); West Town Pizza Crawl (3 pm) Sundays: Bucktown/Wicker Park Pizza Crawl (11am)
