Restaurant Details

More like a casserole or vegetable tart, Lou Malnati’s Deluxe pizza would probably not be recognizable as pizza by a Roman or Neapolitan: it’s overloaded and moist, with a buttery crust just this side of soggy and difficult to discern beneath the maybe two pounds of veggies piled on top. A more traditional pan pizza is the Lou, an offering with spinach, tomatoes and several cheeses (no substitutions!). For sides, there’s a combination platter of fried veggies and cheese (cholesterol is not spoken of here); for dessert, a chocolate chip pizza, a soft-baked cookie covered with ice cream of indeterminate flavors. I don’t know who started the whole beer and pizza thing, but wine perfectly complements pizza, and here the most expensive bottle is just over $20, which ain’t bad.
