Considered the oldest family name in Chicago pizza, Malnati's is as rich in history as it is in flavor. 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 absolutely the greatest deep dish pizza on the planet. Each pizza is handmade from scratch.

Lou Malnati's pizza is famous throughout the US & legendary for its authentic deep dish pizza.
