Good Pizza Near Wicked

My friend and I are visiting Chicago this weekend. We have tickets to Wicked on Thurs night. Thought we might get some good pizza before the show. Any suggestions to a good pizza place near the show or our hotel, Palmer House. Thanks for your help. Can't wait.

This is a stuffed pizza, thick and cheesy. Love em but they are filling. I just did a few searches to find them. You can check the Uno's and Lou Malanti's too and see whats in the loop area. Enjoy.

Giordano's is a great idea, and was one of my favorite pizzas in college.

I now live downtown (right near Wicked, in fact) and in the last 15 years since college, Lou Malnati's has edged its way to the top of my list.

There's much debate about Chicago pizza, and you really can't go wrong, but it's worth checking out Lou Malnati's if you have a chance. It's about 10 minutes (walking, less in a cab) from the theatre and is reasonable and fantastic. It's on Wells just north of Merchandise Mart; if you're walking, turn right out of Wicked until you hit Wells, (a couple blocks), then turn right again on Wells. Cross the river and it'll be about a block past Merchandise Mart. (More info from the web below).

Whatever you do, enjoy Chicago!

Family-operated Chicago pizzeria flies its pies all over the country.

Lou Malnati's well-made pies have been the talk of the Chicagoland area among deep-dish aficionados for 35 years. The well-rounded Italian menu also includes pastas, salads, Lou's Italian Ice and the curiously named Chocolate Chip Pizza - an enormous cookie in a round pan smothered with ice cream. Clearly Ol' Lou had his work cut out for him when he started rolling dough as his father's apprentice; now the restaurant will ship fresh deep-dish pizza anywhere in the country. Though Mr. Malnati passed in 1978, his sons have continued the family tradition, creating the feeling of a "family-run" restaurant at every chain.
