NYC and Chicago Mend Pizza Fences With Roberta's Pop-Up

Who says Chicagoans and New Yorkers can’t agree about pizza? A pop-up collaboration between Big Apple-based pizza legend Roberta’s and the Windy City’s Dusek’s Board & Beer proves that rivals can be friends and a delicious hot-from-the-oven pie can bring us all together.

Roberta’s this week will partner with Dusek’s in a three-day promotion that starts on Friday and runs through Sunday at the Dusek’s location in Pilsen, according to the Chicago Tribune. The star of the showwill be the Green Screen, a specialty pizza topped with taleggio, pork sausage, broccoli rabe, garlic, chili flakes and a bit of lemon.

Roberta’s will also bring signature items like the vegetarian Bee Sting pie, while the menu will feature pizza-friendly cocktails, such as the Pizza Mary, featuring Wheatley vodka and an arrabiata Bloody Mary mix. Another option: a mixed drink made with Fernet and Mexican Coca-Cola.

This will be the second time Roberta’s has collaborated with Dusek’s in Chicago. They first worked together in 2017. A portion of the proceeds for this year's event will help support the nonprofit GirlForward.
