    Deep dish by the slice for $3.66

    Best deep dish in Chicago. It's like if SNK made pizza instead of fighting games.

  • Chicago Tribune

    You can order a whole pie there or have it delivered, but what sets them apart are the ready-to-serve, by the slice options. All slices, pan or stuffed, are very affordable. Read more

    Best pizza in Chicago. It's hard to say whether the thin crust or stuffed pizza is better.

    Pizza by the slice for only $4.00 and it tastes great.

    For takeout, order 45+ minutes ahead. Some pizzas come with 2 liter soda, but you have to ask for it.

    My favorite pizza by the slice place in Chicago. Whole pies are decent but if you are only looking for a quick meal, their slices will do the job.

    An exceptionally sturdy crust, crispy on the bottom and sides but possessing a wonderfully chewy interior. Eating it also doesn't require a knife and fork. Read more

    Petes pizza is Wayyy better for the price and quality

    The Best Pizza I've had in a longtime..... A+

    This joint has seen its popularity rise thanks to its stuffed pizzas, including Art’s Southwestern (barbecue, ground beef, onion, bacon), and Art’s Hawaiian (pineapple, Canadian bacon, green pepper). Read more

    Go by the slice - currently an even $4 each when tax is included

    Best chicago pizza I've had. Only tried five so far but that still says a lot.

    Marcus Bahena · September 28, 2013
  • Linda F.

    Our go-to for delivery. Seriously can't go wrong with the thin, pan, or stuffed. Delish!

    The cheese by itself is an experience. Sauce is a perfect blend of sweet and herby. Why go anywhere else?

    Best stuffed pizza!

    Stuffed Spinach Pie: The golden crust filled with a stunning amount of mozzarella and toppings, all topped with a rich tomato sauce brings a thrill that makes the typical 45-minute wait well worth it

    Unlike New York slices, which make for good snacks, a stuffed slice at the Art of Pizza will likely fill you up, especially if you get some sausage on it.

    Serious Eats · May 14, 2013
  • Andrew H.

    One slice I basically a complete meal

    Andrew Hogan · May 4, 2013

    If you don't eat meat or just feelin GREEN, try the spinach/mushroom stuffed Pizza! Slice only 3.75 and its a meal!

    Hawk Rising · April 18, 2013
  • Hawk R.

    If you don't eat meat or just want to feel GREEN, try the Spinach/Mushroom stuffed Pizza. Best in Midwest!

    Another great pizza place among all the various chain deep dish places. This has some of the best deep dish I've had in Chicago, definitely recommended

    Disappointed in the pizza, but the appetizers were great. Probably wouldn't go back.

    After more than 15 years eating there...I have to say, there is not better guilty pleasure! I have to hit AOP every time I come back home to tha Chi!

    Perfect Pairing: Fume Blanc, Soave, Chinon, Chianti, Pale Ale, Amber Lager

    Best pizza in Chicago

  • John C.

    Kinda bland, but decent for the price. Don't get your heart set on finding a parking space!

    John Cesarone · February 25, 2012
  • andrew c.

    Order an entire pizza. They'll cook it fresh and it's much better than the slices beneath the heat lamps.

    andrew chapello · November 29, 2011
  • Cole B.

    Best unknown Pizza spot in the city.

    Cole B · October 15, 2011

    Great pizza but the mexican delivery driver in a white car is piece of shit.

    Bobby McLean · December 22, 2010
  • Rick C.

    Great place to take friends if your looking for standard Italian fare. Good for small parties as well.
