The lovely and effervescent Ralph & Lori are just outside Cincinnati this evening before making their way up to Chicago on Monday. Ralph has expressed a strong interest in some Chicago-style pan pizza. As Burt's is closed on both Monday and Tuesday, we are relegated to "second best". My original thought went to Lou Malnati's, but then I remembered my favorite kind of pizza, other than Burt's, is a stuffed
pie from either Nancy's or Suparossa. A quick internet check revealed both places are open on Mondays. Other considerations finalized the decision to Nancy's in Niles.
For those not familiar, a Stuffed Pizza is baked like an actual pie; thin crust on the bottom, ingredients, including cheese in the middle, and another thin crust on top with a layer of tomato sauce on top of that. The advantage at Nancy's is that they make both the stuffed pie and a traditional Chicago-style pan pizza. We can order a couple different pies and compare.
The other advantage with Nancy's is their location. Located on Golf Road in Niles, Illinois, within a mile or so of I-94, it's an easy on/off for anyone from Milwaukee who wants to join us.
Time has not yet been carved in stone. We'll adjust based on Ralph & Lori's arrival time, but the current estimate is around 7:00-7:30pm. So who wants to welcome the Pittsburghers to the Midwest? This could be a cheap date on a Monday night, so leave your responses at the beep.
