No music today only PIZZA !! Here's a few pictures from The Chicago Pizza Tour !!

This is Jon, the originator and tour guide of The Chicago Pizza Tour. Jon really knows all about pizza and gave a great tour to 4 pizza parlors in and around the Chicago Area.
First stop was Pizano's in downtown Chicago. Owner by Rudy Malnati Jr. Pizano's served us a winner in both thin crust and deep dish pizza.

Next we hopped The Chicago Pizza Tour bus and driver Jim took us to Red Flame in the Lincoln Park area. Jon pointed out highlights alone the way, some of which were Soldier Field, Lincoln Park Zoo, Children's Memorial Hospital, the infamous Biograph Theatre ( Where Gangster, John Dillinger, was killed by the Feds) and through the DePaul University neighborhood. Red Flame featured flame cooked pizza that was unusually prepared and very good. One pizza with several different cheeses and one pizza with potato and chicken.
Here's Patricia, who waited on us, and Jon with Jack the Chef.

Next we headed over to West Town to the CoalFire, Chicago's Original Coal Oven Pizzeria, where J and the boys made their classic Neapolitan style pizza which they fire in an 800 degree coal fed oven.

Last stop on the tour was Gino's East, a legend with locals, celebrities, and visitors from all over the world. Gino's East served the mecca of deep dish pizza.
