Pequod's Pizza in Chicago

Pequod's Pizza is available at two locations in the Chicagoland area.  The original is in Morton Grove, Illinois, while the second is in Lincoln Park, Illinois. You can get it delivered to your door or pick it up at the restaurant. Depending on your location, it is generally open between 11 am and 2 am.

This local institution is known for its deep dish with a caramelized crust. Toppings are generous, and cheese is thickly applied.

Pequod's pizza is a hybrid of Chicago-style deep dish and Detroit-style pizza. It has a ring of baked mozzarella cheese around its pan-style crust. Using a round cast iron pan, the pizza is cooked to perfection.

A slice of Pequod's Pizza is best served hot from the pan. The crust is chewy and crunchy, and the sauce is perfectly balanced.

Pequod's also offers chicken tenders and bruschetta. These appetizers are made with fresh tomato and basil. They're toasted and served with various dipping sauces, including creamy garlic.
