Hollywood Pies is a fitting representative of our new era of eating out. The authentic Chicago deep-dish deliverer launched its concept by bringing pies to your door, while also selling them in shady Cheviot Hills-adjacent parking lots under a system of runners that could have been torn straight from the crack days. For an audience familiar with chasing down Kogi, jockeying for a swipe at LudoBites and Wolvesmouth, or squeezing into Starry Kitchen’s apartment for a meal, the Windy City-style pizza turned into an underground sensation before being found more conveniently in a food truck. Today, Midtown Lunch announces the backward journey is now concluding with the soft-opening of a Hollywood Pies storefront.
Hollywood Pies, which is staying in its same neighborhood, but keeping the Hollywood moniker, is currently open during evenings, Wednesday through Saturday night, from 5:00 to 10:00 P.M., as well as Sundays from 3:30 to 7:30 P.M. In addition, it is keeping lunch hours on Fridays and Saturdays from noon to 3:00 P.M.
Midtown Lunch gives early praise to the joint’s “Classic” deep-dish, which uses fresh mozzarella, Italian sausage, and house-made ricotta, takes 30 minutes to hit the table, and is referred to as “a damn good deep dish pizza made by a dude who is super passionate about making pizza.”
