CHICAGO – The Chicago Pizza Summit was back by popular demand Sunday, bringing slices from 14 different pizza places around the city to Theater by the Lake in Lincoln Park.

Anthony Spina started the Chicago Pizza Summit four years ago, and brought it back this year due to popular demand.

“Pizza is a universal language and a connector. So it’s young, old, male, female, North Side, South Side, it’s a beautiful mix of what makes chicago great,” Spina said.

The event brought big names like Lou Malnati’s and Gino's together with pizza newcomers like "Pizza in a Bag," and included pizza-inspired drinks like the deep dish daiquiri.
