Lou Malnati's is an institution when it comes to legendary deep dish. But we've been dishing up the Windy City's other quintessential pizza style - Chicago Thin Crust - for decades. Featuring our famously buttery and crispy crust, signature tomato sauce, and edge-to-edge toppings under melty Wisconsin cheese, it's perfect for your next pizza night.
AVAILABLE IN CHEESE, SAUSAGE, OR PEPPERONI.

The best way to experience Chicago's two quintessential styles: ship them both. Choose our Lou's mix and match pack, which includes one Lou Malnati's Deep Dish and two Lou Malnati's Chicago Thin Crust pizzas.
Lou Malnati's Chicago Thin Crust pizzas are 11-inch pizzas and serve approximately two people. Or if you like a challenge, they could also serve one person each. We aren’t here to judge!
The process for cooking up a perfect Lou's Chicago Thin Crust pizza at home is different from how you would cook a deep dish pizza. The label spells it out for you, but here's a summary below. (Hint: take the pizza out of the pan!)
- Step 1: Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
- Step 2: THIS IS IMPORTANT! Remove the pizza from the pan and carefully place your pizza directly on the middle oven rack.
- Step 3: Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until cheese is melty and crust is crispy and golden brown.
- Step 4: Remove pizza from oven and slice into squares, the Chicago way.
Chicago-style thin crust pizzas are traditionally cut in squares. Cut your pizza the Chicago way and decide for yourself, are you an innie or an outie? AKA do you prefer the topping-forward middle (“innie”) pieces, or crusty (“outie”) edges?
For sure! Lou Malnati's may be known for legendary deep dish, but we've been dishing up Chicago's other quintessential pizza - Chicago Thin - for 30+ years.
In the Lou Malnati's history books, the deep dish came first, but thin crust was a welcome addition to the menu, added more than 30 years ago!
We've started with cheese, sausage, and pepperoni varieties, but you never know what the Lou's Chicago Thin Crust future holds…
