Grab Your Next Slice at These Family Pizza Spots Near Tinley Park

Keep these spots in mind when looking for your next yummy slice of 'za.

Everyone always assumes that when you are from the Chicagoland area, deep dish pizza is the only way to go. But sometimes, it’s the local mom and pop shops that make the best pizza. Here are our favorites in Tinley Park and beyond.

Durbin’s of Tinley Park

Voted best pizza in Chicagoland by The Score, Durbin’s claim to fame is its taco pizza, topped to the brim with taco meat, cheese, black olives, tomato, lettuce and sour cream. Stop by on Mondays where every pizza on the menu is half price off.

Ed & Joe’s Restaurant & Pizzeria

Indulge your cravings with the latest creations from Ed & Joe’s. Their chefs are constantly cooking up fresh, exciting pizza of the month specials, ranging from meatball marinara and chipotle BBQ brisket pizza to chicken fajita and chicken enchilada pizza. The best part? Any of the special pizzas — along with any pizza on the menu — can be made with gluten-free crust.

Fat Ricky’s

Serving up pizza for more than 60 years, Fat Ricky’s knows a thing or two about deep dish. Simplicity shines here, as their classic deep dish pizza is filled with layers of buttermilk mozzarella cheese and rich tomato sauce, all baked to perfection in their signature crust.  This beloved family recipe has been passed down through generations.

Louisa’s Pizza & Pasta

If you are looking for a tasty deep dish option, skip the chains and opt for Louisa’s, which delivers big on flavors. Owner Louisa DeGenero honed her skills at Pizzeria Duo before going out on her own more than 40 years ago. This family-friendly neighborhood favorite is known for its crisp, buttery crust perfection and homegrown herbs, which season every delicious pie.

Nonna’s Good Life

Voted Chicagoland’s best pizza by WGN, Nonna’s is known for having the world’s largest slice of pizza. At 63-square-inches – or a pound in a half of cheesy goodness – one slice barely fits in a to go box. Available in the cheese, sausage, pepperoni or supreme variety, all guests are invited to take the Nonna’s challenge – eat two slices of pizza in under 30 minutes and score a free t-shirt.
