While pizza by the slice is certainly not what Chicago’s known for (as you can’t exactly get a single serving of deep dish), when push comes to shove, we can give New York style a run for their money when we have to. NYC, eat your heart out. Literally.
Voted one of the top 25 pizzas by Chicago mag, Santullo’s in Wicker Park offers New York slices to hipsters everywhere. Large, greasy and delicious, one slice is good for a snack or late-night treat.

2 Primos Chicago Pizza Pasta
Run by an adorably sassy husband and wife couple, this West Loop hidden gem is home to the giant slice, which literally is about 1/3 of a pizza for $5. If that wasn’t enough, they always try to fatten you up with extras like free homemade soups or desserts depending on their mood.
3 Ian’s Pizza
The infamous late night Wrigleyville spot courtesy of University of Wisconsin, Ian’s serves epic slices of mac ‘n cheese pizza (dyed green on St.Patrick’s Day), burrito, pesto, and a variety of other rotating crazy toppings you have to try to believe.
