2343 W. Chicago Ave.
This is arguably one of the better known pizza places for The Chicago High School for the Arts (ChiArts) students, as they provided slices for $7 last year — that’s a lot for just one slice of pizza. However, it is pretty accessible from ChiArts, being just down Chicago Avenue. If you have extra money, or want to pool together with a friend for food before or after a performance, just hop on the 66 bus (that is, if you don’t want to walk).
2534 W. Division St.
Here’s another one of food truck attempt! Guerreros offers a variety of cheaper foods, making it more than just a pizza place. It’s also closer than Bacci if you’re looking for something less taxing on your legs and your wallet. They also offer takeout if you’d rather take your meal to go.
2356 W. Chicago Ave.
Also on Chicago Avenue, Village Pizza offers a variety of appetizers alongside their pizzas, which vary in price but are generally affordable. They also offer sandwiches in case you’re just not feeling pizza — though I’m not sure why you’d be reading this if you weren’t. Take a group of friends after school!
1520 N. Damen Ave.
A personal favorite of mine — and ChiArts is right in delivery range! If you want some of the best deep dish in Chicago, go here. It’s only a mile away! Order it with some friends and eat it in the park; it’ll be a picnic!
2825 N. Milwaukee Ave.
If you’re into taking the bus just to get some really big slices of pizza, Dante’s is for you. Located just off Milwaukee, it is a bit of a stretch to get there — but it’s worth it. This is not a place you want to go to by yourself, as the size of a single slice is really big. You get the bang for your buck, though: slices are around $4.
