Cracker-thin crust, spicy tomato sauce, and an even disbursement of toppings are why we like Pat’s Pizza in the South Loop. The cheese is generous without being overwhelming, bubbly but not burnt, and the pie has an ideal ratio of sauce to cheese to crunchy crust. There’s really not much more one can ask for in a tavern-style pie. It’s carryout-only, and if you’re lucky they’ll occasionally throw in a can of Pepsi.
