In 1971, Lou and Jean Malnati hosted their first benefit raising money for a scholarship fund in memory of their friend, legendary Chicago Bears running back, Brian Piccolo. After Lou also fell victim to cancer in 1978, the Malnati family dedicated themselves to funding cancer research and treatment programs, and created the Lou Malnati Cancer Research Foundation.
Today, after a transformational donation to the Northwestern Brain Tumor Institute, the Lou Malnati Cancer Research Foundation is proud to introduce the newly renamed Northwestern Medicine Lou and Jean Malnati Brain Tumor Institute.
By making this contribution, our goal is to help the Northwestern Medicine Lou and Jean Malnati Brain Tumor Institute attract and retain even more world class talent, who have the capability to both create breakthroughs in battling brain tumors and advance patient care in the neuroscience field. We believe that our “dream team” will become one of the top three brain tumor institutes in the country.
Watch Jean accept special recognition for the newly named Northwestern Medicine Lou and Jean Malnati Brain Tumor Institute.

With this TEAM Malnati partnership, we’re bringing golf fans and pizza fans together with the goal of raising money for the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Fund. For every eagle Peter makes while on tour, we will donate $50 to the Lou Malnati’s Cancer Research Fund, and for every birdie, we’ll donate $25.
Today’s your lucky day because we’re going to share our secrets for how to make the quintessential Chicago-style deep dish pizza, our Malnati Chicago Classic!
Now who’s ready for a slice of that Malnati Chicago Classic?
Toasted bread, crusted with parmesan cheese and stuffed with a three-cheese blend of mozzarella, cheddar, and provolone, sliced tomatoes, and fresh basil. This is no ordinary grilled cheese sandwich!
Artichoke hearts, roasted tomatoes, and bowtie pasta tossed in our homemade pesto sauce, topped with shaved parmesan cheese. Add chicken for an additional cost.
Items are available at our full-service restaurants (excluding Phoenix & Lawndale) and cafés only. Grilled Cheese served with fries at our full-service restaurants, or your choice of potato chips or fresh fruit at our Lincoln Park and Evanston cafés.
Lou Malnati’s Arcadia is open for business at 4pm!
Our second pizzeria outside of Chicagoland is located in Phoenix’s Arcadia neighborhood at 3431 North 56th Street at the southeast corner of Indian School Road and 56th Street.
What makes this pizzeria different from our first Phoenix restaurant? As a carryout and delivery only location, Lou Malnati’s Arcadia does not offer seating, but will make it even easier for Phoenix’s deep dish pizza lovers to pick up their favorite Chicago-style pizza or have it delivered!
Stop by Lou Malnati’s Arcadia today at 4pm and help us celebrate our grand opening with, what else but, PIZZA! See you there.
