On the WGN Evening News, we checked out a couple places to get some unusual pizza toppings here in Chicago. Websites, addresses, phone numbers, and my thoughts on both Piece and Ian's Pizza is right after the jump!

Piece is home to the famous Clam and Bacon white pizza. The folks over there told me that clam is very popular on the east coast, which makes a lot of sense. Not being much of a clam fan myself, I was a little skeptical, but it completely won me over. Be sure to sprinkle some of that lemon juice on your slice, it almost turns it into saganaki! Prices range between

Ian's is the spot for people who like to think outside the box with their pizza. Their best seller is the Mac & Cheese pizza, but my favorite has to be the Mexicano - loaded with pico de gallo, sour cream, crushed tortilla chips, and more. The downside with Ian's is that they're not open for lunch, but they are open during Cubs game days (obviously).
If you know of a place that I HAVE to check out, be sure to let me know. Or maybe you have a crazy homemade recipe for pizza that we just have to try out? Leave a comment below!
