Help finding Chicago Pizza Restaurant - Unique Mon, 03/29/04 7:46 PM (permalink)
Some 25 years ago I ate at a very unique pizza restaurant in downtown Chicago. The pizza was prepared in 1 or 2 pound bowls, brought to your table, turned upside down and poured out on your plate. It appeared that the pizza ingrediants were put in the bowl and topped by a crust before inserting in an oven.
As indicated, you either ordered a 1 pound or 2 pound pizza. I thought it was called Uno pizza but I am told that the current Uno's is not anything like what I have described above. I want to take my family ther the week end of April 9th but can't remember the name or location of this unique style of pizza. Please help! If you can help please email this address which is my wifes or to me at Thanks in advance.

      The upside down bowl pizza definitely was not Uno. I believe it was the Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder, which may have been on Clark -- right near where the Valentine's Day Massacre happened -- if memory serves me.
