Candlelite Chicago

Candlelite Chicago is a Rogers Park staple with a giant neon sign that announces local birthdays, prom proposals, and breaking news like “James Got His License!” But even more iconic than its 70-year-old sign is Candlelite’s pizza. The pies at this large neighborhood sports bar are very thin with a great crackly crust, yet the undercarriage has a pleasant airiness and chew. The crust is the perfect foundation for standard topping combinations like the Deluxe, which has an ideal ratio of zesty tomato sauce to cheese, plus sausage, pepperoni, onions, peppers, and mushrooms. But they also have delicious creative options like a BBQ pizza topped with pulled pork from Hecky’s in Evanston. And if you can't decide what to get, pop in on Tuesdays when they have a BOGO pizza deal.
