A press release came across my inbox this week, promising yet another pizza place along Clybourn in Lincoln Park, opening later this month. While Pequod's is more old school, offering standard thin and Chicago pan pizza, and Sono Wood Fired goes for a more Neapolitan-style pie, baked rapidly in a blazing-hot oven (yet somehow doesn't nail the crust), redFlame is promising our pizza-crazy city yet another style; something only devotees of a certain Providence, RI restaurant can get excited about: grilled pizza.
The PR folks say their pizza will feature a "two-flame" process - one will grill the dough, while another will heat the toppings. Could this be the pizza of our dreams? The one that George Germon and Johanne Killeen created at Al Forno, almost exactly 31 years ago?
