Considered the oldest family name in Chicago pizza, Lou Malnati's is as rich in history as it is in flavor. Lou Malnati’s pizza is famous for its authentic deep dish pizza. Lou got his start in the 1940’s working alongside his father in Chicago’s first pizzeria. Lou took his pizza expertise to Lincolnwood where he & his wife opened the first Lou's Pizzeria on March 17, 1971. Aficionados of Chicago-style deep dish pizza lined the streets on opening day for just a taste. Lou’s sons, Marc & Rick have carried on Lou’s vision of making the greatest deep dish pizza on the planet.
Each pizza is handmade with care from scratch. The next generation of this family owned & operated company, now with over 40 locations, has continued to grow thanks to dedicated staff & loyal customers. Lou Malnati’s Tastes of Chicago division ships more than 250,000 pizzas a year, & the catering division caters to more than 10,000 families, businesses & organizations each year.
