Pizano's thin-crust pie sufficiently impressed Oprah Winfrey (when she lived and worked here) that she dubbed it her favorite. No wonder - the thin crust stands up to a barrage of toppings without losing its crunch. Even Rudy's Special - cheese, sausage, mushroom, onion, and green pepper - doesn't compromise the crust. The deep dish is a fragrant, bubbling thing of wonder, too, with its buttery crust - try Mark's Special. a heady combo of sliced tomatoes, basil and fresh garlic and you won't miss the meat. In case you do, sample Mama Malnati's Homemade Meatballs. There are also gluten-free options, traditional Italian chicken dishes, pasta and sandwiches and burgers. The South Loop location, next to McCormick Place, offers an outside café during the warmer months.
