Located next to Miller Plaza in the heart of downtown, Community Pie is a top-notch pizza joint started by restaurant aficionados, the Monen Family Restaurant Group. Having already mastered fresh-mex with Taco Mamacita, burgers with Urban Stack, and BBQ with Clyde's on Main, Community Pie is proof that they can also do pizza. But not just any pizza... Community Pie specializes in traditional Neapolitan and New York style pizza that even the most hardcore Chicago-style lover would admit was out of this world.
Using high quality, locally sourced ingredients, these pizzas, with their thin, pastry-like crusts and flavorful toppings, simply melt in your mouth. Start with the Raw Kale salad, which is served with sliced almonds, dried cranberries, and parmesan cheese. The Grown-Up Fried Cheese is also a delicious guilty pleasure appetizer. And for the main meal, you can't go wrong with any of their specialty pizzas. In fact, it will be difficult to choose which pie to order— they're all so good!
Some of our favorite Neapolitan pizzas are the Sausage and Peppers, Pork Confit, Hot Hawaiin, and Sweet Fig. If you're feeling hungry, it's quite possible to finish an entire Neapolitan. Or, you can order larger New York style pizzas if you're in a sharing mood.
Wash all of this pizza down with any one of their long list of craft brews, wines, or specialty cocktails. And if you have a sweet tooth at the end of your meal, have a scoop or two of the homemade Milk and Honey gelato that is made on-site.
