Lou Malnati's Pizzeria - Chicago
Lou Malnati's is considered the oldest and most prominent family name in Chicago's pizza. Lou Malnati got his start in the 1940s working in Chicago's first deep-dish pizzeria. He took that expertise to Lincolnwood, a northern suburb of Chicago, where he and his wife Jean opened the first of many to come pizza-focused eateries.
Malnati’s success comes from their commitment to quality. Every Lou Malnati’s pizza is handmade from scratch using the finest and freshest ingredients. Every year, the Malnati team hand selects California vine-ripened tomatoes for the perfect sweet and tangy taste.
The exclusive sausage blend is seasoned to their exact specifications. The fresh mozzarella cheese comes from the same small dairy that has supplied Lou Malnati’s for more than 40 years. And the family’s secret recipe for flaky, buttery crust has been passed down from generation to generation.
