As Chicago natives we take pride in bringing you authentic Chicago deep dish pizza and other specialties from the Windy City. Our 312 Pizza sauce recipe has been passed down over three generations from our grandmother, who spent time cooking with the Italian immigrants in Little Italy. The sauce is blended with herbs and seasoning left to marinate overnight. An excellent sauce is never heated until used on your pie. This insures a perfectly fresh, aromatic taste; not a reheated tomato flavor.
Our dough starts with non GMO flour that is never bleached and never bromated with less than two tenths of a percent of protein variance. Along with our cold pressed imported Italian olive oil, this helps make a perfect dough. Our deep dish dough has to be made the day before in order for the rich flavors to develop. It has a buttery quality about it that is firm yet tender. Many people say the back end of the crust is their favorite part!

We only use Bacio 100% natural Italian cheese that is specially made with premium Grade A milk and a kiss of buffalo milk. The Buffalo Milk gives the cheese a richer and creamier flavor and texture.
Our beef and chicken are free from growth hormones and antibiotics, and we source local and organic produce whenever possible. To say we take pride in the quality of our products would be an understatement!
Due to the thick crust, our pies take about 45 minutes to cook. Enjoy a beer and some appetizers while you wait for your perfect Chicago Pie to arrive fresh to your table. We promise all this care and attention is well worth the wait.
Our Pledge: To Cook Your Food, not just heat it up.
The only frozen products we buy are Ice Cream from Pied Piper in East Nashville and Cookie Dough from Christie Cookie Co. around the block. Everything we serve you is either made from scratch or sourced locally. We even make our own ketchup and salad dressings. However, we do import Vienna, Giardiniera and Turano Rolls from Chicago.
