The northernmost pizzeria in the city of Chicago, Candlelite has been a neighborhood fave for tavern-style pizza since 1950. The sign outside evokes as much nostalgia as the thin and crisp crust with homemade sauce and fresh toppings. In fact, Candlelite is exactly the kind of place that influenced this sort of pizza to be dubbed, "tavern-style." Of course, the best pizza anywhere is what has just emerged from the blazing oven and landed on your table. If you're in the neighborhood, by all means, set the GPS to get to Candlelite. The menu lists more than 20 starters from brisket nachos to poutine tots as well as tailgate chili, wraps, sandwiches, burgers and nine salads. Move onto specialty pies (sausage, peppers, Provolone to an "Angry Hawaiian); and white pies including the Candlelite White with garlic oil, fresh mozzarella, Provolone, Parmesan and goat cheeses, caramelized onions and roasted garlic. Otherwise, build your own tavern-style just the way you like it. The popular pizzeria that has been serving customers for more than 70 years in Rogers Park has spent months perfecting the ultimate frozen pizza recipe so you can get one delivered no matter where you're planted.
