Here’s the clincher with Pequods pizza: they have this awesome way of burning the crust on the edges so that the crust caramelizes, you eat it, and then your taste buds simultaneously implode and explode.
This is the pizza place you take out-of-towners to when they ask you to present the best pizza in Chicago. I once ordered Pequods (2207 N Clybourn Ave, Chicago, IL 60614) for my buddy’s bachelor party and throughout the night received no less than 5 compliments on the excellent pizza recommendation. No less!
Also literally every time I have ordered delivery the pizza is EXACTLY the same. I don’t know what kind of ritual they perform to make sure the pizza is always consistently awesome, but it’s powerful, old, and dark magic.
