Pizano’s is a local chain that’s been around since 1991, and this is the location right across the street from McCormick Place. This spot has both thin crust and deep dish, though we’re going to suggest you go with the thin. We appreciate the buttery cracker crust, and we always order it with pepperoni. If it’s nice out, sit on the patio.
