Chicago legends Portillo’s, Lou Malnati’s bring back iconic, Chicago-style pizza

A very Chicago-style pizza is coming back for a limited time.

In honor of “Italian Beef Week,” which takes place May 20-26, iconic Chicago joints Portillo’s and Lou Malnati’s will reunite to launch one of its most popular collaborations: the Portillo’s x Lou Malnati’s Italian Beef Deep Dish Pizza, according to a press release.

The pizza was first introduced in 2022, and returned in 2023 for a short period of time. As the creation returns for a third year, officials are calling it a “three-peat.”

The nine-inch pizza, with either Portillo’s homemade sweet peppers or hot giardiniera, features Malnati’s signature buttery pizza crust, plum tomatoes and Wisconsin mozzarella topped with Portillo’s slow-roasted, thinly-sliced Italian Beef, the release said. The limited-time collaboration is available to be shipped nationwide through Tastes of Chicago in packs of two, four or six, and in combination with other classic Portillo’s offerings, the release added.
