Tom, you bring back some good memories for me. Ed and Joe's in Tinley Park, IL, was one of my favorite pizzas when we lived in the south suburbs of Chicago for many years. It has won many awards for best pizza and is still going strong I understand. Living in Florida now, I miss those great old mom and pop pizzerias. I understand from their website that they ship frozen pizzas now also. Hmmmm.
Other great thin crust pizzas in the south burbs that I recall were Joe Aurelio's place in Homewood, Nino's, Papa's, Fox's and many others. --BTB
