Coda di Volpe This Southern Italian spot on Southport is serving up nine Neopolitan-style pizzas, including the classic Margherita Di Bufala or Funghi. I also have my eye on the Quattro Formaggi with fior di latte, gorgonzola, grana Padano, pecorino and arugula.


My Pie For classic deep dish, check out My Pie, one of the Hungry Hound’s top picks for deep dish in Chicago. While my usual spot is Gino’s East, I’m dying to try this Chicago favorite including artisan-made Wisconsin cheese and San Marzano tomatoes from Modesto, California. (Photo Credit: My Pie)

Nice Neapolitan at Pizza Art Cafe although more mozz than normal.

Pizza Art Café For a casual BYOB spot and brick oven Neopolitan/Roman cross-style pizza, visit Pizza Art Café in Lincoln Square. Their wood-burning flame locks in freshness and flavor for a light and crispy crust and the menu offers a variety of veggie, meat and seafood options, so it’s perfect for all guests.


DIY At-Home Pizzas If you’d prefer to test out your own cooking abilities at home, whip up one of these six unconventional pizzas from The Kittchen, featuring a Naan and Whipped Feta Pizza with pesto, tomatoes and toasted pine nuts.
