I'm always visiting places for the first time when Theresa Carter of The Local Tourist is around. I especially love her Chef's Table series, where she features a new Chicago restaurant every month. This month, to my delight, we went to Red Flame Pizzeria, where I tried (and loved) my first grilled pizza.
The pizza shop is located in Lincoln Park and boasts a two step, two flame process for making their unique style of Chicago's favorite pie. First the dough is grilled, then toppings are melted on top. The crust comes out as a lovely combination of chewy and crunchy deliciousness.
The grilled pizza prices are very reasonable starting at $13, but if you go in on a Wednesday, you can get 2 for the price of one!
Chef's Table events are an ideal way to explore Chicago's culinary scene without spending a fortune. Make it even more affordable with a Chef's Table Membership.
