A Chicago-Style Pizza Joint Serving Tasty Deep Dish Pies Is Opening This Month

By Laura Rogan

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 set to open February 17th, 2021, 4pm-9pm Wednesday-Friday and 12 noon-9pm Saturday and Sunday. The pizzeria will offer takeaway only as the UK remains under lockdown restrictions. Menus are promised to go live this week, however, from sneak peeks we can expect some seriously drool-worthy dishes.

Til then, you can get your Brewski fix with one of their epic sharing platters.
