Considering we’ve already told you about Chicago’s best pizza by neighborhood, best under-the-radar pies, and best slices in town, it might come as a bit of a shock when we tell you that good pizza exists beyond the Chicago city limits, but… good pizza exists beyond the Chicago city limits. These are the 19 best pizza places in the whole freaking state. Pizza road trips: now a thing.
Pizza Villa – DeKalb
What you’re getting: Taco pizza
It all starts with the homemade dough at Pizza Villa. For nearly 60 years, this pizzeria has been serving it in thin crust and pan pizza form to the surrounding population. Customize your pizza or try one of the specialty pies like taco, Buffalo chicken, and the Pizza Villa Special, which’s loaded with sausage, mushroom, green pepper, and onion.
