Because we all need a little at-home pizza party in our lives right about now, Bill’s Original Tavern Pizza is dishing out Chicago Tavern-style pizza for carryout and delivery in downtown Chicago and now, Rosemont too! Bill’s menu is complete with appetizers like Parmesan French Fries, fresh salads, a variety of classic and modern thin crust pizzas, desserts and more!
Named for RPM Restaurant’s partner and native Chicagoan, Bill Rancic, the inspiration for the pizzeria came from two RPM partners, Bill Rancic and Kelly Clancy, who both grew up on the South Side of Chicago, where classic Tavern-style pizza was a big part of both of their childhoods.
“Growing up on the South Side of Chicago, my family would order Tavern-style pizza every Friday night from iconic South Side pizzerias like Fox’s and Aurelio’s,” says Bill Rancic. “To be able to open up a Tavern-style pizza place is exciting because I get to share something that was such a big part of my childhood with everyone.”
“My dad has owned a pizzeria for the last 25 years located on the South Side of Chicago at 115th and Pulaski,” says Kelly Clancy, Partner, RPM Restaurants. “I grew up working there and at the beginning of this project, the first stop for Chef Sam and I was to my family’s pizzeria.”
Chef Sam Dickstein (Pizzeria Portofino) and his culinary team rolls the dough which creates a crispy, thin crust pie that is then cut into squares.
Available in three sizes including 10 inch, 12 inch and 14 inch, Bill’s signature pizzas include classic pies like the Meatball & Giardiniera made with prime beef meatballs, Italian Sausage made with fennel, Lugano Mozzarella, oregano and romano cheese, Bill’s Original Cheese and modern creations like Buffalo Chicken with shaved celery and a choice of ranch or blue cheese for dipping or BBQ Chicken topped with Kansas City BBQ sauce, caramelized onions and bacon.
