Chicago Pizza Kitchen, or, How a Small Pizza Lasts Three Meals

Pincus | Aug 20, 2009 11:56 AM

Got out to Maple to try the Chicago-influenced pizza.

Service was very friendly. I got a small pizza and a bottomless homemade ice tea. Which was appreciated as the day was hot and no A/C.

The pizza came. Sauce was a chunk one based on plum tomatoes. I liked it, it was simple, but tasty. I thought back to how I had a simple but disastrous sauce at Massimo's and marvelled at what cooking skill can do for a meal.

I had four slices, and then I stopped. My stomach said "No more!" I took the rest back home. It made breakfast one day and lunch the next.

Will definitely return. The bottomless ice tea was a nice idea, and he did provide a pitcher of ice cubes to keep it cool, but refills on the tea were accompanied first by new ice, but the ice water was poured out first so I was getting diluted ice tea each time. But, I didn't mind so much. They had sugar water in a separate shaker bottle to sweeten it if you wanted, which was a nice touch.
