The Chicago Traveler

A Piece Offering

by Matt B on October 14th, 2008

I am and always will be a deep-dish pizza fan, but I can admit that the pieces of Piece can win me over.

piece pizzaNo, this isn't Chicago pizza by any definition; thin and hand-padded, these 'pies' are made with minimal toppings. Here, the crust and sauce are the primary ingredients. Slip into a booth and order up one of the award-winning brews while waiting for your red, white, or 'plain' pizza.

Down the street from Zen Noodles, red pizzas begin with traditional tomato sauce and mozzarella. Whites are brushed with olive oil, diced garlic, and mozzarella cheese. 'Plain' offers a plentiful amount of red sauce along with garlic, parmesan, and olive oil. From there, add your own choice of toppings. It sounds oh-so-simple, but it's oh-so-good.

piece menuThere are plenty of appetizers and sandwiches also available, but really, it's all about the pizza and beer here. And if that isn't enough of a treat, Thursdays are karaoke nights and Saturdays are live band karaoke nights.

It may not be deep-dish, but I don't mind being at Piece with myself… and with a few friends.
