Due to a fried motherboard on my home machine, I haven’t been posting here. But even if things were A-OK on that front, I’ve been busy with a work project to go along with this week’s Time Out Chicago pizza issue, so I doubt I’d have been all that active anyway.
This is the first time we’ve ever done a pizza issue, in part because it seemed a little obvious. But I think we did a solid job with this, and we will no doubt cause a little controversy with our pick of Coal Fire’s Margherita pizza as the best in the city, along with the whole deep-dish vs. thin crust debate (I’m on the deep-dish side a.k.a. “the side of the angels.”)
In addition to all the kinds of things you’d expect from TOC on a topic like this, I put together a video of local chefs from some of the city’s best pizza joints talking about how to make a Margherita pizza. The reporting and camera work were done by freelancers but it was up to me to edit down five hours of video into some snappy video clips. You can see the results here.
