Pizza Company sounds like an oxymoron, but tastes like a
dream! We were so excited to be invited to the opening
of HomeMade Pizza's new Streeterville
They had samples, kids' activities, and even free, full sized pies
for happy customers to take home and try late last week, through
the grand opening Saturday. One happy woman in the
sizable line said to us, "This is turning out to be a GREAT day.
I didn't know this was goin' on and I was walking home from
work and now I'm walkin' out with free dinner!"
We also try to reduce our carbon footprint and live as gently on
the earth as we can, though it's a process. So we were
elated to find eco-friendly water bottles at HomeMade Pizza.
The Green Planet Water guy was a hoot, and
gave the kids a demo by pouring hot water into the bottles, which
makes them scrunch up and change shape. This shows,
quite visually, how these biodegradable water bottles are truly
different than their plastic cousins.

bake it yourself for the freshest homemade taste.
They've taken vegetarian and even vegan diets to heart and made
these pizzas a regular part of the menu and not a special
HomeMade Pizza is a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
Eric Fosse, founder and CEO, started HomeMade Pizza right here in
Chicago and we're happy to see local entrepreneurs take a great
idea and run with it. It's such a relief to have tasty,
quick dinner options, especially when convenience doesn't mean
sacrificing great taste and fresh ingredients. We loved that
the pizza comes ready to cook on a parchment, that makes it easy to
slide on the oven shelf and cool to slide out when it's done.

Ultimately the taste will tell. This is pie you'd be proud
to serve to the pickiest kids and adults.
