Chicago Is a Pizza City.
No Doubt About It.

Over the past two years, a wave of new, exciting pizzerias has spread across the region, and we think it’s about time we celebrate our pizza diversity. Pizza City Fest Chicago brings together 39 of the region’s best pizza makers (and one out-of-town guest) for two days of pizza making and appreciation, all in one location – Plumber’s Union Hall in the West Loop.

10 DIFFERENT PIZZA STYLES.

…from 40 incredible pizzerias. Working on 10 PizzaMaster ovens, each pizza will be made to-order, so you can experience the pizza as it was meant to be: fresh from the oven. Styles will include: Tavern, Deep-Dish, Stuffed, Sicilian, Roman, Thin, NYC Slice, Detroit & Artisan.

PIZZA & DOUGH PANELS

Special guests include Chris Bianco (Pizzeria Bianco, Phoenix), Tony Gemignani (Tony’s Pizza Napoletana, San Francisco) and Dan Richer (Razza, Jersey City) who will share their knowledge and expertise in a series of seminars throughout the weekend.

VIP PIZZA LOUNGE.

A VIP section will include an additional oven with two special pizza makers each day, allowing pizza fans to get up close and learn from some of the city’s dough pros. Plus, receive an invite to our official Welcome Party on Friday night at the LondonHouse Hotel. Beer and cocktails are included in the price, as well as artisan gelato, among other treats.
