Of course they did: Chicago restaurant creates Blackhawks-shaped pizza

Wednesday June 3rd, 2015

Chicago is known for its pizza, its hockey, and now its hockey-inspired pizzas.

Punky's Pizza and Pasta in the city's Bridgeport neighborhood introduced this marvel of a tradition during last year's Stanley Cup Playoffs, creating a pizza in honor of the Blackhawks. With the team back in the Stanley Cup Finals, it's worth giving the pie a little shine.

With red, green and yellow peppers cleverly deployed to make the Indian head's feathers and black olives for the hair and eye on a custom-cut crust, it's a reasonable facsimile of the Hawks' logo. There's even an earring in there.

Comcast Chicago shot a how-to video at Punky's, which you can watch here.

For the record, these pizzas are only served on game days and presented uncut, so customers can take pictures with them. Game 1 is Wednesday night.

Your move, Tampa.
