Lou Malnati’s Pizza is coming to Phoenix
Lou Malnati’s Pizza is coming to Phoenix! This will be the famous pizzeria’s first venture outside of the Chicago area. For all you Chicago deep dish pizza fans, this is a big deal!

Lou Malnati got his start in the 1940’s working in Chicago’s first deep dish pizzeria. He took his pizza expertise and opened the first Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria in 1971. Lou was known for his fun-loving character as well as making Chicago’s best pizza and today is considered the oldest family name in Chicago pizza. This is a family-owned company. Five members of their management team volunteered to permanently relocate to Arizona to bring the true taste of Chicago to Phoenix.
Malnati’s success comes from their commitment to quality. Every Lou Malnati’s pizza is handmade from scratch using the finest and freshest ingredients. Every year, the Malnati team hand selects California vine-ripened tomatoes for the perfect sweet and tangy taste. The exclusive sausage blend is seasoned to their exact specifications. The fresh mozzarella cheese comes from the same small dairy that has supplied Lou Malnati’s for over 40 years in Wisconsin. And the family’s secret recipe for flaky, buttery crust has been passed down from generation to generation. The secret to the dough is Lake Michigan water Malnati says. So, they are working on replicating the pH level of their water for the Phoenix location.
The Phoenix location will be located at 100 E. Camelback Road in Phoenix. It will offer dine-in, carry-out, catering, and delivery. Lou Malnati’s is coming to Phoenix! This famous Chicago deep dish pizza restaurant is slated to open in May. Until then you can get one of these yummy pizza’s shipped to your door.
