Guinness Pizza on Tap at Chicago Pizzeria for St. Pat’s!

Chicago, IL (Feb 18, 2016) – Chicago’s love of pizza and beer will be combined in one extraordinary pie when Frasca Pizzeria & Wine Bar in the city’s Lakeview neighborhood brings back its famous Guinness Pizza – the only of its kind served once a year on St. Patrick’s Day, Thursday, March 17th.  Frasca’s Guinness Pizza, devised by Irish owners Doug and Michael Dunlay, goes for $13.  The wood-fire oven pie is made with a real Guinness stout crust and topped with béchamel sauce, roasted onions, fingerling potatoes, bacon, three cheeses and a signature egg.

“It’s the ultimate in St. Paddy’s drinking food to help line your stomach,” said Chef Todd Stein, who uses Guinness in place of water when making the pizza dough.  “The beer gives the crust a light chocolate brown hue and nice zesty scent.  Combined with potatoes, cheese, bacon, and egg, it really brings the flavors to a different level.”

Guests of the St. Pat’s Guinness Pizza Party, which officially starts when doors open at 4:30 pm and goes till close on March 17th, may also customize their pizzas with a selection of other fresh toppings or build their own wine flight to pair.  Furthermore, kids eat free between 4:30 pm and 6:00 pm.  Reservations are highly recommended by calling 773.248.5222.
