Candlelite Pizza

Tavern-style Pizza

Candlelite

Contrary to popular belief, Chicagoans don’t devour deep dish pizza every other night. In fact, the city’s most ubiquitous local pie more closely resembles the tavern-style creations that Candlelite serves, set atop a cracker-thin crust that’s shatteringly crisp and cut into easy-to-share squares. Founded in 1950, Candlelite has become a Rogers Park institution, beckoning hungry diners with a bright neon sign that’s nearly as iconic as the toppings-laden pizzas that come out of its ovens.
