Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria is an American Chicago-style pizza restaurant chain that has become one of the Chicago area’s best-known pizza restaurants. Lou Malnati’s also operates a division of its company called Lou Malnati’s Presents Tastes of Chicago, a partnership with Portillo’s Restaurants and Eli’s Cheesecake, which ships Chicago-style cuisine nationally.
Lou Malnati’s is a prototypical Chicago style pizza, and its deep dish pizza is generally referred to as a “pie.”
A thin crust of pizza dough is laid in a seasoned deep-dish pizza pan and raised up on the sides. The ingredients are placed on a Chicago style deep-dish pizza in the opposite order of a thin crust pizza. The first ingredient is thick slices of mozzarella cheese that are placed directly on the dough. Then additional ingredients like mushrooms, onions and sausage are spread on top of the cheese. The pizza is then topped with a tomato sauce made with whole chunks of tomatoes.
Every year, the Malnati team hand selects California vine-ripened tomatoes for the perfect sweet and tangy taste. The exclusive sausage blend is seasoned to our exact specifications. The fresh mozzarella cheese comes from the same small dairy that has supplied Lou Malnati’s for over 40 years. And their family’s secret recipe for flaky, buttery crust has been passed down from generation to generation.
Whether you’re in Chicago or another local market, you can now enjoy a legendary deep dish shipped nationwide from Tastes of Chicago.

Lou Malnati’s began shipping their famous deep dish pizzas in 1987 after many requests from ex-Chicagoans all over the country that were missing their favorite hometown pizza. The service was initially only offered during the holidays, but Malnati fans needed their deep dish pizza fix all year round! The shipping service expanded and came to be known as, “Lou Malnati’s Priority Pizza.”
Tastes of Chicago also offers hometown Chicago favorites from iconic Chicago brands including: Eli’s Cheesecake, Vienna Beef, Portillo’s, Garrett Popcorn Shops, Frango, Fannie May, Bobak’s, Wildfire, Manny’s Deli, Long Grove Confectionery, and many more. They also offer gift packages for any occasion, gift cards, apparel and other merchandise from Lou’s.
Today, Tastes of Chicago ships more than 500,000 Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizzas throughout the year. Lou Malnati’s pizza remains the most popular item shipped and we think that’s because deep dish pizza just isn’t the same anywhere outside sweet home Chicago!
