The event was a coordinated effort by Marc Malnati and his son, Toro co-owner Will Malnati. Ingredients (yes, even the water!) were shipped to New York, and all of the pizza making preparations were overseen by Marc Malnati himself.

Insider Food took a trip to Lou Malnati’s Oak Park, where they got an inside (see what we did there?) look at how to make a true Chicago-style deep dish pizza.
Check out the video on Insider’s website, but viewer beware…this will make you extremely hungry.
If you’re already having major deep dish cravings right now…Order now and satisfy your craving!
This award was given by the Oak Park Disability Access Commission, and Mark was nominated by counselors at Shiners Hospital because of his work with the kids from their Adaptive Sports Camp. In June, he did a pizza making demo with the campers…here at Lou’s, pizza making is most definitely a sport!
Fun fact: this pizza making demo was done with flashlights in the dark restaurant after the power went out due to a summer rainstorm. Mark was not about to miss the opportunity to teach the kids how to make a deep dish pizza just because of a power outage!
As a company, we truly value providing great hospitality, and Mark’s work is a shining example of hospitality at its finest. Way to go, Mark!
Last week, we backed Chicago Archbishop Blase J. Cupich in a wager with Cleveland’s Bishop Richard G. Lennon over the outcome of the World Series.
In the wager, Chicago’s Archbishop Cupich promised to feed more than 100 guests of the Bishop William M. Cosgrove Center in Cleveland with Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza and baked goods from Misericordia’s Hearts & Flour Bakery if the Indians came away with the victory.
Even after the BIG win, we’re still going to give guests at the Bishop William M. Cosgrove Center in Cleveland a taste of Chicago. Yesterday, Archbishop Cupich, Sister Rosemary from Misericordia, and Marc Malnati gathered at Lou Malanti’s Gold Coast to celebrate paying off the wager, even after the Cubs’ World Series victory. Watch a clip of the trio below!
For us, there’s no better way to celebrate this great victory than by giving back to those in need. We are proud to have been a part of this wager!
Guests of the Cosgrove Center in Cleveland enjoyed deep dish for lunch on Monday, November 21st! Check out the video posted by the Diocese of Cleveland:
