Soon you'll once again be able to eat food created by Hot Doug's Doug Sohn.
No, the encased meat emporium isn't reopening. Piece Brewery and Pizzeria in March will serve a special pizza crafted by Sohn, the Trib reports. But like the 1985 Bears, Sohn isn't doing this because he's greedy. Proceeds from Sohn's pizza sales will benefit Pilot Light, the charity featuring local chefs teaming together to promote healthier eating in Chicago's schools.
We can only dream of a pizza topped with Hot Doug's rib-eye sausage or a foie gras pie. There's no word on what will top Sohn's pizza, Piece owner Bill Jacobs said. Sohn is traveling and won't be back until Jan. 1.
Sohn isn't the only chef involved. The Girl & The Goat's Stephanie Izard will craft her own pizza which Piece will serve in February. Jacobs called Izard's participation a "slam dunk."
"She's going to put out something that's pretty damn awesome," Jacobs said.
The gang behind Honey Butter Fried Chicken will also bring back their gluttonous pizza in January. Piece first served HBFC's pizza in February and raised $1,788 for Pilot Light.
"We've got three great pizzas on the schedule and we're going to raise a lot of money of this great program," said Jacobs.
Demand for the Honey Butter's pizza was huge, but Jacobs said they're now better equipped now to keep up with demand: "We kept running out, but that won't happen this year, we know what to expect."
