Great Lake plans a sandwich/cookie sale - Time Out Chicago

Great Lake - Chicago, IL
Few dishes in Chicago have received the hype that the pizza at this tiny Andersonville storefront has. Even fewer have lived up to it. Yes, Nick Lessins is some kind of genius, and if you’re willing to brave Great Lake’s indifference to you, you’ll be rewarded with an ethereal pie made with the finest ingredients—perhaps cremini mushrooms, aged goat cheese, and sea salt on a puffy crust.

This place no longer in business since almost a year ago.

Heirloom Tomato: This is glorious, light yeasty, pizza crust. The No. 1 comes with slices of fresh heirloom tomato, fresh mozzarella, garlic, herbs, and tangy, salty mona cheese.

Best Pizzas I ever eat
GQ Magazine
It's a super thin crust pizza with amazing big bubbles. And it's chewy. Just try it. Thank us later.

Most amazing pizza ever. Delicious. Be sure to try the tomatillo salsa, dante lamb cheese, fresh herb pizza. You won't be disappointed!

Thanks to the puffy, chewy crust; the house-pulled mozzarella; layers of earthy mushrooms; and an obsessive eye for detail, the answer, if your mouth isn’t already watering, the wait is worth it.

Is the pizza worth the wait? Thanks to the puffy, chewy crust; the house-pulled mozzarella; layers of fresh, earthy mushrooms; the answer, if your mouth isn’t already watering, is yes.

Try the salad with buttermilk dressing from our 100 Best list: An obsession with detail, an amount of scrutiny seldom applied to lettuce, a superlative, creamy dressing.
Time Out Chicago
The menu consists of only three pizza and the owner makes each individually- with puffy, chewy crust; house-pulled mozzarella; layers of fresh, earthy mushrooms; and an obsessive eye for detail.

Heads up, order in advance and bring your patience... This is hand-crafted wonderland, but foodies only.

This is one of chef Grant Achatz's favorite dining spots for pizza, which is all made of local, organic ingredients.

Stop in, put your name on the list, and then wait it out at a local watering hole (Hopleaf).

Be sure to add bacon if you order the #3 (Spinach pizza)

You gotta stop in necessary exTRAVagance just around the corner while you wait! Great EcoLuxe home store!
Time Out Chicago
The modest rack of shelves on Great Lake’s western wall plays second fiddle to the highly coveted pizzas.

This is good food. It is a tiny place, it probably seats 20. And: it has the best mushroom pizza you'll eat outside Italy. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm.
