Chicago Pizzeria Shows You How To Make Your Own Quad Cities Style Pizza
Pizza is our legacy, you know that, right? No matter what music comes out of the Quad Cities, no matter what sporting event is held here, we will be known by our pizza style.
And I'm perfectly ok with that! I happen to love Quad Cities Style Pizza. The thin long slices, the crumbly sausage, the sweet crust. Franks, Harris, Uncle Bill's...whoever! I'll take it all!
Turns out there's a pizza place in Chicago that apparently has a QC connection. They say they were born in the Quad Cities...but raised in Chicago and have now spread the gospel of the QC Style pizza to Chi-Town.
They've got regular Quad Cities Style Pizza and Taco Pizza..."a Quad Cities original".
RootsPizza.com describes QC pizza: “Quad Cities-style” pizza is its own Midwestern breed, not comparable to Chicago’s own deep dish, New York style or Neapolitan. With a sturdy, chewy malt crust, spicy tomato sauce and a thick layer of cheese, these pizzas pride themselves on being devoid of pretension."
Master the art of creating your very own pizza by using the basic fundamentals taught here at Roots Handmade Pizza! Our dough tossing pros will demonstrate the perfect technique for you to follow along with. You then will be guided through saucing, topping, and cheesing your pizza as you wish. Once you’ve created the perfect pie, we bake your masterpiece in our oven. All that is left to do, is for you to enjoy!
