Lou Malnati's Pizza

Are you saucy or are you cheesy? I've been asking everyone this question with the intention of getting a pizza preference out of them. So many focus on thin vs. thick crust; this is not longer a question when you live in Chicago. The only crust is thick crust and thin crust is not an option. So now it's about the cheese to sauce ratio. Alex's is cheesy, therefore liking lots o' cheese and not so much sauce. I have been known to eat tomato sauce like soup, so I'm obviously the saucy type.

I'm on a quest to find the perfect saucy pizza in a town surrounded a cheesy state (hello, Wisconsin). On such a quest one must try Lou Malnati's. It's yet another one that's walking distance again! You have few but important discisions to make when you sit down. First, do you share well and how hungry are you? Here are some pizza sizes to consider:
6" Individual (serves 1)
9" Small (serves 2)
12" Medium (serves 3)
14" Large (serves 4)

Then, do you get classic cheese, pepperoni, sausage, or "the Lou"?

Extra toppings?
Mushrooms, onions, green peppers, black olives, sliced tomatoes, extra cheese, garlic, hot giardiniera, anchovies, extra tomato sauce or fresh spinach (enhanced with garlic, basil & onion)

When in doubt, keep it pure!

Ugg, Lou has a thin crust option. Save that experience for NYC. Be like the cool kids and get the Chicago crust.

Alex & I got spinach, onions, and hot giardiniera. (the Sausage & pepperoni had pork.) I could only eat one piece and then food coma. Bottomless Stomach Scott ate a small pepperoni all by his self though. What a trooper.

So, cheesy or saucy? Perhaps the next critical question while finding your soulmate on or eharmony.
