Happy belated National Cheese Pizza Day!
Yesterday was a monumental event: National Cheese Pizza Day. I follow @Foodimentary on twitter, and they tweet about different food holidays and quotes about food. I was so happy to learn that Sept 5 was National Cheese Pizza day, so I knew I had to get a pizza no matter what.
I decided to try Edwardo‘s in the Gold Coast neighborhood on Dearborn and Division. It’s close to my apartment and has great thin crust and deep dish pizza. I used to eat at a location in the suburbs, so the pizza brought back old memories. I ordered a small 10″ thin crust cheese pizza for carryout, and was so excited to eat it that I finished a portion on my walk back. Take a look!

I was thrilled to have this amazing chicago-style pizza. Last week I had sampled many different types of pizza, but the combination of floury crust, tomato sauce, and delectable cheese brought me back to a Chicago classic. There is a touch of cornmeal on the crust, and it’s neither crunchy nor floppy. I loved the taste of this pizza and was in heaven. The great thing about Edwardo’s gold coast is that it is genuine all-natural chicago pizza and the restaurant isn’t a madhouse like many others.
Obviously I will be back to taste the deep dish pizza, because the beauty of Edwardo’s is that they are well-known for both styles of pizza.
Looking forward: In lieu of National Cheese Pizza Day, I decided to peruse the internet in hopes of finding other pizza related holidays. Here is a consolidated list of what other pizza events I’m looking forward to:
