You don’t expect pizza restraint in Deep-Dish City, but that’s what owners Bill Carroll and Dave Bonomi advise on the menu at their coal-oven Neapolitan pizzeria: “Due to the delicate nature of our crust, and the care we take to ensure maximum quality, we recommend: one to two toppings per pizza, no more than one vegetable topping, and evenly balanced toppings (i.e. half toppings are not recommended).” Crowds have heeded that advice for almost a decade now, enjoying the thin crust that emerges slightly charred and bubbly from Coalfire’s 800-degree clean-burning coal oven. And this summer, they’ll be able to do that at a soon-to-open second location

Foursquare Tips

  • Great pizza. Awesome staff. Highly recommended.
  • Coalfire changed the way we think about thin crust. If you like it super crispy with a little bit of char, this is your new haunt. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Among the top 5 pizza places on many lists including mine. Great food and staff and fair prices.
  • Get there before 7pm! Shake hands with Dave. Order a cupcake.
  • my fav' pizza joint in the city.
  • Delicious New York style pizza (ie, proper thin crust). Everything is great, but the nduja is my favorite - spreadable spicy sausage on pizza!
  • Margarita pizza is good... just ask for extra mozz on it.
  • Coalfire focuses on the freshest dough and ingredients making their margherita and Fiorentino pizzas among the best in the city, but their mortadella pie is the must-eat.
  • The thin crust pies come out of a piping hot 800-degree coal fired oven and the results are impressive. Try the classic Margherita, or the Pesto, Moradella or Prosciutto creations.
  • The crust was some of the best, crispy but not falling apart!! The salami was out of this world
  • The world's only Springfield Massachusetts themed restaurant Including Springfield Massachusetts
  • The cupcakes are amazing
  • Try the clam pizza, brings BVK memories of Connecticut!
  • Best pizza in Chicago

  • Stop in to hang out with Tonya and Lyra
  • MUST.GET.WHIPPED.ROCOTTA
  • The crust on the pizza is incredible, but the pizza itself did not live up to the hype. We tried a few types - make sure to steer clear of the ones with honey. They taste like a stale waffle.
