We loved the pizza here - a healthy whole wheat base absolutely loaded with high quality ingredients, all of which we chose. It is the first time we haven't been able to finish a shared pizza, so generous and substantial were the toppings. The service is friendly and attentive, and the drinks list also very good. If we lived in... More

The Pizza Research Institute escorts pizza away from precious or mundane to absolutely delicious with an emphasis on local ingredients and health-conscious options. I'm a Chicagoan with a non-native love of thin-crust pizzas. So don't look to me for advice on thick-crust styles. That being said, I have learned to make my own pizza dough, and I've eaten "pies" all... More

When Amanda and Isiaha were at the helm the atmosphere was not only more friendly but the pizza was better by far. We have dined here for the last time. The pizza used to be more of "an art form", now it's just a "pile on crust" with way too much cheese. By the amount of people dining here the... More

Good pizza and atmosphere! We had one with potatoes and another with pears. Different and delicious. Would return! Love the variety of options and low sugar drinks. The outdoor patio is fun.

Although vegetarian, the pizza recipes are very good and made fresh (takes 30 minutes at least). Nice wine offerings as well and will give you a taste if the bottle is open. Really friendly, attentive waitstaff. Very loud when full so suggest going during the week, not on weekends. The music they had playing was totally unnecessary and made it... More

Funky spot. Love the pizza. The Eggplant pizza is great. The outdoor patio is fun. The location in The Whittaker neighborhood is great.

PRI is a unique pizzeria that uses a gluten-free crust, uses no meats, and has great options for vegan cheese. I'm not a huge fan myself, but I can definitely see the appeal. As a meat and gluten eater, I had an okay time here, but it's some of my friends absolute favorite. So, I'm not rating it very highly,... More

This is not only the best pizza we have ever eaten, it is one of the best food tastes we have ever enjoyed. We like a variety of different foods, vegetarian or not, and the pizza at the Research Institutes is absolutely delicious. Fresh and amazing combinations. We have tried many different kinds and it never disappoints. Staff is friendly... More

Not like any other pizza you have ever had. When they say research they mean it. My personal favorite is the P3. It is also the only place in town I know of where you can get Gilgimesh beer.

This is our favorite "pizza joint" and will surprise anyone who enters expecting a typical pizza place. The toppings are unique and varied, from asparagus to cauliflower to potatoes to spicy tofu. A favorite is the P3 pizza with Potatoes, Pesto, and Pears -- Yum! You might not expect it, but it's actually delicious! The servings are substantial with enough... More
