    These pizza looks great...but too much sauce, too much cheese, i guess that a "normal" napoletan pizza is better and "healthier" :).

                            It may sound weird, but when you go to Lou’s you HAVE to try their salad. It’s some of the best I’ve ever had and any Chicagoan will tell you the same
