Quattro Mani: Pizza Pairings

Quattro Mani: Pizza Pairings

At Eataly Chicago, we believe that pizza is a serious thing. From deep-dish to tavern-style to our own napoletana, the love, labor, and traditions that go into the dish are incredible. Each pizzaiolo – pizza maker – is trained in the art and technique; each ingredient is significant, down to the smallest basil leaf.

We want to celebrate all styles of pizza, so we’re launching an all-new weekly series: “Quattro Mani: Pizza Pairings.” Why? Because four hands are better than two.

Every Tuesday from 6 to 9 p.m., a local Chicagoan, from the city's best chef to the biggest pizza enthusiast, will team up with our pizzaioli at La Pizza & La Pasta to make a pizza using their choice of ingredients and one of our four new styles of pizza dough. The guest chef’s pizza will be plated side by side with a smaller version of our classic pizza napoletana, so you can compare each equally delicious style.

Then, for the entire week following, the guest chef's pizza will be featured as a full-size pizza for you to enjoy! Whether you loved it enough for a second try, or you missed out on the first night, you'll be able to enjoy it at your leisure. Don't forget to ask about the special beverage pairing to complete your pizza experience!
