Rating: ★★½☆☆ 

Located inside the Airway Market on Freeport Boulevard, you will find a very unlikely location for a pizza joint. Chicago’s Pizza is located in the back of the market past all of the snacks and goodies. I had reviewed their menu online and called in my order, where I spoke with friendly staff and was provided my total.

Today, we decided to order the cheese bread, hand-tossed pepperoni pizza, and a Chicago-style all meat pizza. We had arrived a little early, and the friendly staff were able to take my payment via credit card. All three pizzas came steaming fresh. The cheese bread was very cheesy but did not have much of any flavor. The pepperoni pizza also tasted a bit bland, but the crust was nice and fluffy. The all-meat pizza had a deep crust, but was not a true Chicago-style pizza because there was not a lot of sauce. The pizza also tasted a bit bland. Luckily, with such a large order, there was plenty of leftovers. The leftovers actually tasted better than the fresh pizza and the crust maintained its fluffiness.

Overall, Chicago’s Pizza serves up some decent bland, yet fresh pizza. Service is great and prices are reasonable. Location seems a bit sketchy inside a market, but we had no issues at all. If you are looking to try something different, Chicago’s pizza may be a good alternative to mainstream pizza.
