Car Con Carne

Dec 13, 2022

Car Con Carne pulls up to Wicker Park for a long chat with Bill Jacobs, owner of the much-celebrated Piece Pizzeria & Brewery (1927 W. North Avenue). 


As we eat Hot Doug’s Atomic Sausage pizza (red pizza with pepper jack, caramelized onions and atomic sausage), we talk about:

*Piece’s quick rise to fame in Chicago

*What exactly is “New Haven-style” pizza?

*Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Rick Nielsen’s partnership in Piece

*Innovation and collaboration

*Piece’s award winning beers


As a bonus, we’re joined by author Andy Frye (90 Days in the 90s). Andy jumped in the backseat to enjoy a vegan pizza from Piece and chime in on the conversation. Speaking of 90 Days in the 90s…
