Bartoli’s makes modern deep dish pizza in the classic Chicago style (Episode 814)

Eater Chicago named Bartoli’s one of the Essential Deep Dish Pizza Restaurants in Chicago.
USA Today called Bartoli’s Chicago’s Best Pizza.
Food And Wine said it’s the Best Pizza in Chicago.

The critics aren’t wrong… Bartoli’s makes fantastic pizza. For this episode, I’m joined by
Bartoli’s Owner/Founder Brian Tondryk. We talked about Bartoli’s place in Chicago pizza, and how a lot of Brian’s passion can be traced back to his grandfather Fred Bartoli: You know, the guy who created Gino’s East!

As we chatted, we ate a thin crust DIAVOLO (Soppressata , Capocollo, Ricotta, Calabrian Chilli Peppers , Mikes Hot Honey)…

… and a deep dish BARTOLI’S CHICAGO CLASSIC (Italian sausage, mushroom, onion and green pepper).

Both were amazing.

February is a major pizza month:
National Pizza Day is the 9th
The Super Bowl is the 12th
Valentine’s Day is the 14th.

If you’re ordering pizza for any of those events, get it from Bartoli’s.
