The Best Pizza on Earth (seriously)

When I first went to Pizza Papalis, I looked at the menu and thought people had to be crazy to spend $15 on a small pizza. I actually left and refused to support a place that would charge that much for a pizza (I now know that a small pizza at Pizza Papalis actually feeds 2-3 adults).

One day I finally gave in and ordered this pizza, and it is the best pizza I have ever had in my life. I am VERY familiar with pizza. I have eaten at Genos East, Lou Malnatis, Giordanos, Unos, and
...view more all the great Chicago pizza places, and Pizza Papalis beats all of them hands down. All the ingredients are fresh, the tomato sauce is amazing, and the crust is flakey and golden brown, and the staff are very friendly.

I make it a purpose to visit Pizza Papalis several times when I come back to Michigan to visit, and it's so good that I actually thought about franchising one in Miami Beach (I live in Florida).

I strongly urge you to try this place. Be sure to get the deep dish pizza as it's the best you will ever have. I used to be engaged to girl from Chicago who told me I was crazy if I thought there was a better pizza than Lou Malnati's; but after she went to Pizza Papalis, she agreed it was the best. We are both pizza fanatics.

Also, the deep dish cookie with ice cream is also great. Have them heat up the cookie and give you some chocolate fudge/sauce to make it even better.

It was amazing Dinner

I think this food was amazing. Even though the wait is 45 minutes long for your pizza it was well worth it. The crust is amazing the cheese is so melty and good. The toppings are fresh and are waitress was so nice. Even though the pizza is a little pricey it was all worth it.

Majority Wins!!

As a Detroit native, now living in Atlanta (much love to Nancy's Pizza- u guys tried), I can say that Pizza Papalis remains at the top of my list for deep dish pies. The pies are packed with fillings such that every bite is pure heaven. A good deep dish pie will cost you. Eating the BEST deep dish pie is priceless. Check it out. Would all of us write all of these reviews if it wasn't worth it??? Enjoy!!

The Deep dish is excellent, each drop is worth every dime. I prefer seafood, but sometimes go for the deep dish with pepperoni, and extra Italian sausages. When ever its my turn to pick all my friends know where we are going. I never get tired of Pizza , that's why I would never get tired of Pizza Papalis. There is no reason to look else where for great pizza and service. A one stop shop!

Excellent Pizza

We ordered a pie with pepperoni and olives, and loved it. The olives were fresh and the sauce was wonderful. The light crust was amazing.

Love their pizza

Pizza Papalis is sooo good!! I agree with the post below, it is better than most Chicago deep dish. Although the wait time is long, it is definately worth it! Their chicken strips are very good and so are their salads.
