The tastes of Chicago are landing in Manchester.
Manchester’s pizza scene is set to diversify again, this time with Chicago-style deep dish pizzas. Created by the team behind the much-loved North American comfort food spot Brewski, American Pies MCR is currently in the works – and it looks bloomin’ delicious already.
Announcing the news on their Instagram, a post by Brewski said: “Big News! We just can’t keep it a secret anymore, we have been working on a brand new deep dish pizza restaurant American Pies ( a pizza joint by Brewski ).
“Launching early 2021. Expect deep-fried calzones, cheesy garlic knots, Chicago deep-dish pies, grandma pies, dessert pies & more.”
Joining the likes of Rudy’s, Corner Slice, Nell’s and Ciaooo as just some of Manchester’s already wonderful pizza offerings, American Pies will offer up something slightly different – creating Chicago-style Deep Dish pizzas and contrasting the city’s competitive Neapolitan scene. The restaurant will offer up a range of pizza pies with a number of toppings, so far teasing a fennel sausage, basil, pepperoni and parmesan creation. Additionally, guests can expect some seriously hearty homestyle dishes such as meatballs and deep-fried calzone, all absolutely drenched in Italian-style tomato sauces.
The brand new pizza joint is currently set to open February 1st, 2021, with further details expected in the run-up.
