Robert's Pizza & Dough Company serves up handcrafted thin-crust, artisanal pies with fresh unique ingredients.
The secret is in the crust, a Garvey family recipe affectionately dubbed ‘Za Dough’ that took 20 years to perfect. Za Dough’s unique crust allows Robert’s Pizza & Dough Company to offer not only the classics, but also new, never-before-tried recipes, such as the lamb vindaloo pizza and the original dessert pizza.
Who's the “Robert” in Robert’s?
Robert Garvey, a New York native, is an entrepreneur, business owner, playwright, teacher and certified Pizzaioli from the Scuola Italiana Pizzaioli.
Garvey’s love for pizza spans back as far as he can remember. As a young boy in New York City, pizza was everywhere and each slice was as unique as the next. After moving to Chicago, Garvey became obsessed with creating the perfect pizza. This obsession took him on a 15-year journey of testing his signature pizza recipes on friends and family alike from his Gold Coast/Streeterville home.
“Eating a slice a pizza is a journey”, says Robert. “Can’t wait to open the new Robert’s Pizza & Dough Company -so we can share our handcrafted artisanal pies with Chicago.”
