The only decent pizza near me is Rosati's in Oconomowoc, Wi. But I haven't been there in years because the prices are ridiculously high.

My favorite in the Chicago area is Aurelio's in Homewood, IL.

Jim Mac, I have never really gone into Oconomowoc. Although I do work for Waukesha County.

You know, a lot of Chicago-based places have opened up in Brookfield, such as Portullos and Lou Malnatis.

You could give Lou Malnatis, near Brookfield Square Mall, a try.

Being from Chicago it is tough finding good pizza in northcentral Wisconsin. Probably our favorite around here, Bill's pizza in Stevens Point. Not quite Chicago but satisfies the craving. We do have Lou Malnati's shipped.

Told my hubby, we need to take a few days back home and indulge in all our Chicago favorites.

EllieKay56, Happy Easter.

I was close to your old neighborhood, a couple times, recently. On the corner of Western and Lunt is a real nice treat store, Lickity Splits. Maybe try it out on your next trip down?

I love that your local place is Bill's Pizza!!!.... The name kind of lacks the feel of a Chicagoan sound of: Giordanos, Ignotz's, etc.

Happy Easter to you also.
You were right down the street from Candelite Pizza. Love their cracker thin crust.
I think Lickety Split is in the old ice cream place. Right down from Indian Boundary Park.

In Wausau, Angelo's Pizza (another good Chicago name) is owned by Cindy Crawfords relatives. She has been spotted there. It is good pizza too. COVID has kept it closed for general dining and they only do carryout.

EllieKay56, then I must have driven past Candlelite Pizza 1000 times in my travels down there! And cracker thin is such a great style of pizza.

Ok, so you know Lickity Split! Yes, I take the kids to Indian Boundary Park and the Red Door animal shelter, right by it.

Angelo's Pizza DOES have a certain sound to it!

Wausau??? You know, you inspired me via another discussion we had on the forum, to reach out to Master Bob Likes. He is still around, and I called him a couple of months ago!

If you guys happen to go to Chicago and I'm down there, let's grab a slice... And if you do a pit stop in Milwaukee, the offer still stands. We have our good spots, too!

If you are ever in the Elkhorn area, I highly recommend Enzo's Pizza in Elkhorn. I walked in, and heard fluent Italian being spoken and I knew the pizza was going to be good before I even tasted it.
