Your Comprehensive Guide to the Best Pizza in Evanston

May 27, 2022

Pizza is an American favorite, never failing to bring us together on game day, at parties, or just for the cravings. While Evanston isn’t quite in Chicago, that doesn’t keep the city from getting its hands on the best pizza around. You can find a classic Chicago-style deep dish, or reach for the thin crust, pan style, or thick crust. New York hand tossed, anyone? Ever try Detroit style?

Whether you’re gluten-free, vegan, or just looking for a traditional pizza, there is a spot in Evanston that you’ll love.

There is a unique experience in virtually every shop. You can find restaurants that craft their pizzas with real Italian ingredients, fire them up in a brick oven, and/or build your pie right in front of you. Ready to try something new? Build something unique with their seemingly endless combinations of possible toppings.

So, sit down at one of their comfortable restaurants or outside on their patios to soak up the sun, take it to go, or have it delivered. No matter what you’re seeking, Evanston has a place.
