Happy 40th Anniversary, Lou Malnati’s!

I know I’ve been slacking on the pizza posts here, but I will be hitting you with a barrage of deep dish info as soon as I replace my oven (My oven died on New Years Eve – I will post more about that later).

I thought it was important, however, to mention that in 1971, 40 years ago today (Yes, St. Patrick’s Day!), Lou Malnati opened his very first Deep Dish Pizza restaurant in Lincolnwood, IL.

Keep the deep dish coming!

  1. Oh Lou… how I miss thee!!! Lou Malnati’s has absolutely the BEST pizza anywhere! My family has been going there for 34 years. I moved away from Chicago 10 years ago, but have always managed to get family to bring me at least 10 frozen pies when they come to visit. I had gastric bypass surgery a few months ago and I keep dreaming about the day I’ll be able to have a little slice of heaven again!
