Being from the East Coast, I got frustrated with the pizza crusts in Chicago. I believe lots of cheese can't make up for a bad crust. However, once I found this place, I had my solution. It's a great crust and a good sauce and I the topping selections are good, too. It's as good as Peace, but without having to deal with the Wicker Park B.S. The salads are also good. For full disclosure, we pick up all the time, so I can't comment on the delivery. It's not an eat in joint, though, so get it to go.

Apart Pizza has excellent pizza. But the delivery in Edgewater is just awful. I have ordered from them many times and each time I have had to wait for up to two hours. Each time I have had to call then to find our where my pizza was. Even though they have my number they have never even tried to contact me to say it would be late. If you do order from here go pick it up yourself and don't bother with delivery.

Being a New Yorker I have been searching high and low for the perfect thin crust pizza. After trying every pizza place written about, talked about and recommended, I have found the place. Apart pizza rocks...and they deliver! Try one of their specialty pizzas..you won't be dissappointed if you are looking for something different.

In a city with ever-more organic, traditional, wood burned, hand-tossed pizza places, it is seemingly becoming somewhat of a gimmick to get you to pay $15 for a burnt up personal-pan pizza. Not at Apart. I believe that they might be one of Chicago's best and most unspoken thin crust joints. Everything about their pies is spot-on. The crust is beautifully thin, crunchy and chewy on the edges and somewhat mushy towards the middle. The specialty pies are outrageous, using thinly sliced ham, artichokes, good olives, and fantastic mozarrella draped over a light and outrageously pleasant red-sauce, that, dare I say it, might actually be made out of real tomatos!! As well, they have cornered a market in this city that no other pizza place has attempted; traditional italian pizza style, in a New York pizza size. Also, don't be afraid to concoct your own pizza, the staff there is not only receptive to it, but encourage it. I myself, enjoy having fresh arugula dumped over the Prosciutto e Funghi. The ham and brie pie is rich and savory, so don't order too big a size! The inside of the restraurant isn't much, so it's more of a carry-out joint, but with free delivery, you're not missing much. Like a lot of reviewers have said, give them a shot for killer thin crust, avoid them if you're looking to fill a Chicago style fix.

After recently finding a menu under my windshield wiper, I decided to give the Apart guys a chance to fulfill my Sunday evening (admittedly with low expectations). The Tribune made good mention of their ability to make thin crust in a way you might not find in Chicago, and free delivery made the deal irresistible. I called in, ordered a #5 Capriciosa (ham, mushrooms, and artichokes). In less than 30 minutes, I had pizza at my doorstep. Excellent pizza, by any European standard. If you're a big fan of the popular local spendy brand pizza made in brick ovens, or that found on Mott, or Broome Street in NYC, you are in for a bargain treat. If you gauge the thickness of your pizza by the inch, or prefer a quart of sauce in every slice, there are dozens of other Chicago pizza joints for you. If you like very thin pizza with a generous balance of toppings, you don't need to wait for that next trip to the sunny Mediterranean peninsula.

Definitely one of the best pizza joints on the city. Fresh ingriedents cooked to perfection. Delivery does take 1hr + so plan ahead because its worth every minute of the wait.

I heard about Apart from a friend at work. She told me it was the best pizza she had tried in Lincoln Square so I gave it a shot myself. My girlfriend and I ordered a large sausage and mushroon earlier tonight. We were much disappointed. The pie took over an hour for delivery (are Sunday nights that busy? Seriously...I don't know...) and the delivery guy had to call to find his way here. Unfortunately, his English was less than textbook and he hung up before I could understand what he was asking. He must have been telling me he had found my place because a little later he had gotten past the security door and was out in my hallway. The pizza was warmish. For a large pie we could easily count the pieces of sausage on it. One would think that for as little sausage as they threw on that they would at least have spaced them well--but that was not the case. It was as if we ordered a half plain/half skimpy. The toppings didn't even reach the edge of the pie. In fact, they missed by a good 2 inches. Even the sauce was sparse and looked like it had been air-brushed on. In all fairness, there were a few bites (right at the "points") that were great. But for 20 bones for a pizza, I expect a lot more. If I had to choose between popping a frozen Home Run Inn into the oven or going with Apart again, I'd swing for a Homer in an instant based upon time, price and quality!
