Why Aren’t You Eating Pizza During Lake County Restaurant Week 2020?

Why aren’t you eating pizza during Lake County Restaurant Week? There’s no escaping it. Pizza is now in our DNA. If we have pizza withdrawal for too long, we could possibly die!

No – we are not overreacting. (Yes we are). But we’re not…

The Chicagoland area is known for its pizza and that’s no different in Lake County.

Pizza’s long history begins in ancient Greece, where these people covered the bread with oils, herbs and cheese. The modern-day version of pizza originated in Naples, Italy, around the 18th or 19th century.

Apparently, the first pizza was made for the Royal Palace of Capodimonte in 1889 (which used to be where the kings and queens of Naples and Sicily resided and is now a museum/national gallery). And the rest, my friends, is history.

Well – since we’re on the subject of pizza in lake county, Restaurant Week: 10 Days to Savor is here. The delectable event runs February 28-March 8, 2020. These are the top 10+ pizza places in Lake County to devour a slice of pie and to scream ‘radical’ for Restaurant Week. Shout out to Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo for the shameless pizza promotion.
