Chicago Fire Folsom

This is the pizza made famous by restaurants like Lou Malnati's, Uno's and Gino's East. The rich, flaky crust is pressed into and up the sides of a deep pan. The cheese goes down first, sealing the crust. The toppings are then placed over the cheese and covered with our sauce, made from premium plum tomatoes. Please allow approximately 35 minutes to prepare.

Italian sausage, pepperoni, green pepper, onion, mushroom

These wings are made to order from scratch. You'll taste the difference! Please specify Mild, Medium, Hot or Extra Hot. Served with ranch or blue cheese, & celery.

I am a native Chicagoan, so it is nice to have a little piece of home every once in awhile. I ate at all the great pizza joints in Chicago; Gino’s East, Lou Malnati’s, Pizzeria Uno, Giodano’s, etc…
I have been here 3 or 4 times and I think it is a good tribute to Chicago pizza. They have your thin crust, pan pizza and stuffed. Their deep dish could be just a touch thicker, it would be closer to Gino’s East and Uno’s. The toppings are generally good. They use crush or diced tomatoes not tomato paste/sauce and or sausage they spread it in a layer, not chunks of sausage like some other places. This is almost like Gino’s East where you can get sausage patties on your pizza.


The only real thing I long for is a touch of cornmeal in the crust and room for dessert. I still have not had a chance to eat the chocolate chip pizza!

I would rate it 14/20 = Good, I would recommend eating here.
