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