One of our favorite pizza spots in Chicago is Pizzeria Due and we always seem to end up picking up a pizza from Due before heading back to the suburbs. Well, either getting Pizzeria Due or Portillo’s (or both when we’re feeling particularly hungry). One night, we actually dined inside (a first for me) and ordered their chopped salad:
This salad had over 20 ingredients in it – some were sweet, most were savory, and some were pickled. I was not a fan of the pickled vegetables with the different cheeses, cornichons, and salamis. Good thing I didn’t eat a lot because that left more room in my stomach for the pizza. We always order the same thing: sausage, pepperoni, peppers, onions, mushrooms and cheese:
A slice of the Chicago-style pizza:
I love the pizza from Pizzeria Due because they don’t overdo the cheese; some pizzerias I’ve been to just have the crust, two inches of cheese and a little marinara and they call it Chicago-style pizza. Due has a nice butter crust that isn’t too thick and then layers lots of different veggies and meats with the marinara so you have a good mix of everything in each bite. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the Chicago area!
