Pizano's pizza is the best thin crust. Also try Bar Toma for the coal fired pizza that you're looking for.

Where are you staying? Chicago is a huge place with lots of good thin crust.

I gotta ask, what the heck is coal fired pizza? I'm not sure I really want my pizza flavored by coal dust and covered with soot. Why is that an improvement over a wood pizza oven?

Different type of char on the crust. No soot.

I like Bricks in Lincoln Park. Not the best for a nice sunny day, since its in a basement. But the pizza is great, and they have some pretty good beers too.
