The best part about the Chicago pizza scene? Unlike some of our friends in New York, our city accepts all kinds as long as it tastes good - from deep dish to tavern-style to thin crust. And at Coalfire their specialty is the latter. The thin crust is (as the name suggests) coal-fired with a charred, bubbly crust. You’ll find a variety of creative toppings like whipped ricotta with pepperoni, Italian beef, and pistachio pesto. In other words it's the kind of light, tasty pizza that you’re going to want to eat a lot of - so plan on ordering at least two.
