The 20 Best Pizzas In Chicago Via Chicagoist.

Apart Pizza Company
Chicago-style is fine, but sometimes you don’t want to fall into a coma after eating half a slice of pizza. A thin, crisp crust is a hard thing to find, and when I find a place that gets it right, they go right to the top of my list. Apart Pizza Company is my latest go-to for thin crust delivery. I credit my newfound appreciation to our former weekend editor Amy Cavanaugh, who insisted that I order from Apart during a night of gin-fueled gluttony. I’ve never looked back. A particular favorite: their Quattro Formaggi, which isn’t topped with mixed cheese but arranged in quarters, so you and your friends can argue over who wants goat and who wants bleu. Apart has a huge selection of Italian meats, so if you’re up for a night of carnivory that goes beyond sausage and Canadian bacon, they’re perfect. Allow plenty of time for delivery; sometimes good things are worth the wait. —Anthony Todd

Apart Pizza Company is located at 2205 W. Montrose Ave. and 5624 N. Broadway Ave.

The latter being just around the corner from Dawn's new apartment, and they do have a couple small tables where you can dine in. We had the Queen Margherita, I like to order a margherita at a new pizza place to see how they do a classic:

Very good! Boy, the crust! I loved it, this was the most crackery crust that we've had so far. Not bready at all, wafer thin and crisp. We thought there could be a bit more cheese, it was really delicious; perhaps we are greedy. Good tomatoes, nice basil.

Dawn has tried the above-mentioned Quattro Formaggi and didn't love the goat or the bleu, and I am not a fan of bleu. Do you know what the other two cheeses are, though? Brie and Parmesan, nom! Next time I'm going to ask if they will make a Due Formaggi, man, half brie and half parmesan. On that crust? Fuggedaboutit!

"Chicago-style is fine, but sometimes you don’t want to fall into a coma after eating half a slice of pizza." LOL, half a slice of pizza.
