Thin Crust Pizza in Chicago?
At Original Vito & Nick’s Pizzeria they’ve created quite a stir – thin crust pizza. Chicago is the birthplace of the deep dish, a giant pie that is as much casserole as it is pizza. But Vito & Nick’s specializes in (gulp) thin crust pizza.
Original Vito & Nick’s Pizzeria has been a cornerstone of the Chicago dining since Mrs. O’ Leary’s cow kicked over that stupid lantern. It began as a small eatery in 1923 known for home cooked Italian staples including the Sicilian style flatbread favorite by Vito Barraco. In 1945 he was joined in the venture by his son, Nick after the war. The accolades have been rolling in ever since including being featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins and Dives hosted by Guy Fieri.
Today there are two locations to serve Chicago’s guilty pleasure (thin crust pizza) the original location at 8433 South Pulaski Road in Chi Town and the newest outpost at 1015 South State Street in Lemont, IL which features a bowling ally and delivery services.
