10/20/18 – Chicago Pizza Boss Mobile Pizzeria

Self described as a “voyeuristic set up,” the Chicago Pizza Boss Mobile Pizzeria promises guests of the U.S. Pizza Museum a one of a kind Italian street food experience just outside our front doors. Pizza Boss’s hand-crafted “Neopolitan” pizzas prepared in their Forno Brovo wood-fired oven use only the most supreme ingredients, a value we here at the museum share.
