One of Chicago’s most-venerable spots for stuffed pizza, The Art of Pizza, has opened a second location, as they debuted earlier this week in the South Loop. This location offers thin crust, pan, and Chicago-style stuffed pies at 727 S. State St. The original location in a West Lakeview strip mall has received numerous awards since opening about 25 years ago and sells pizza by the slice.

The counter at The Art of Pizza in the South Loop.

The South Loop location offers a scaled-back menu. Besides pizza, there’s salads and footlong subs — just like in Lakeview. Items like ribs and fried shrimp aren’t available at the new location. It will also sell slices.

Check out the menu below. It’s open a half hour later than the Lakeview location, so night owls have another option.

The Art of Pizza, 727 S. State St., (312) 877-5335, open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. with the dining room closing and last order taken at 10:30 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to midnight with the dining room closing and last order taken at 11:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
