For centuries the human race lived in a dull, unforgiving world where the only pizzas by the slice you could find were cheese, sausage, and pepperoni. Today, though, we live in a multicultural pizza wonderland where you can get slices with all kinds of ingredients... along with cheese, sausage and pepperoni. These are the best of them: 10 specialty slices that set the Chicago bar.
The Monster Slice
Pie-Eyed Pizzeria (address and info)
This little spot at Chicago and Milwaukee puts out a nice slice spread at lunchtime. The star is The Monster: a sharp improvement on the classic all-meat pizza with sausage, pepperoni, bacon, and cured soppressata. It’s also the only place we’ve ever seen cactus on the menu of possible ingredients... though it’s unlikely to actually turn up on a slice. Or is it??? (It is.)
