Soggy crust, too much bread, too much cheese…. there are so many pitfalls for pizza in this city.
In an effort to save you the effort and calories from having to sample all the frogs to meet the prince, let us introduce you to Roots Pizza. I know, it’s not new among the Chicago Pizza Places (they have outposts slated to open in Lincoln Square and Lakeview in the coming months), but lets be honest, they are not as well known as the huge deep dish franchises so often talked about. Roots is just damn good pizza. And a mighty fine option for a fun place for a family dinner. Pay attention to the pictures and the titles because you’ll soon understand why this is nirvana. No, this is not a paid ad, we weren’t even given a free soda, we just love this place!!!!
Here’s the rundown:
Homemade sausage, build your own salads with 50+ ingredients, and hand tossed malt crust pizzas with your choice of toppings
Comfy Booths. Activity sheets and crayons. And wait for it… sippy cups with straws so you’re not cleaning up spills all night
Screens. Music. And, a full bar with 100+ craft beers, specialty cocktails & wine
Roots has all the ingredients for a fun family dinner. Afterwards, go next door to West Town Bakery for their cakeballs. Your kids will thank you!!!!Roots Pizza 1924 W. Chicago Ave Chicago, IL 60622
