Have a Whale of a Meal at Pequod’s Pizza

by Matt B on September 23rd, 2008

It has been some time since I last visited Pequod's Pizza, but it was an experience I won't soon forget. I actually used to work near the restaurant, and I'm surprised (and saddened) that I didn't dine here sooner.

pequod's pizzaT-shirt-and-jeans types (many of them students at nearby DePaul University) enter beneath the blue awning and enjoy a contemporary setting with exposed brick and a casual atmosphere. Your mouth will water instantly upon arrival, as the smells of delicious pizza fill the room. You can tide yourself over with appetizers like chicken wings, breaded mushrooms, and jalape'o poppers.

Pequod's makes both thin and (thick) pan pizzas. My preference is definitely the deep dish. The pizza is baked in a parmesan-lined cast iron pan, creating a crispy can't-get-enough caramelized crust that counters beautifully with the hot, soft, gooey cheese. And whether you get it stuffed with spinach, spicy sausage, or plenty of pepperoni, I can assure you, it will be some of the best you've ever had.
