Aurelio’s Pizza Celebrates 60th Anniversary On National Pizza Party Day On May 17

60 Minutes Of Free Pizza. Lou Malnati’s And Home Run Inn Pizza Also Join The Fun



Three of the most well known Chicago-born pizza families, Aurelio’s Pizza, Home Run Inn Pizza, and Lou Malnati’s come together to give back to the community and celebrate National Pizza Party Day on May 17.


Joe Aurelio celebrates Aurelio’s Pizza’s 60th anniversary on National Pizza Party day by inviting two other Chicago native pizza restaurateurs and fellow friends in the industry.  Aurelio’s Pizza, Home Run Inn, and Lou Malnati’s will be giving away 60 minutes of free pizza for guests that come out to Maggie Daley Park.

“We’re bringing together the traditionally south side Aurelio’s Pizza, north side Lou Malnati’s, and then Home Run Inn that started right in the middle off of 31st street.  There’s no bigger debate in Chicago than deep dish versus thin crust pizza, but one thing we can all agree on is that Chicago has the best pizza.” – Joe Aurelio, President of Aurelio’s Pizza.

Aurelio’s Pizza will be serving their thin crust tavern cut slices, Lou Malnati’s will serve their deep dish slices, and Home Run Inn will serve their thin crust slices.  The pizza will be free, but the three Chicago pizza restaurateurs ask that guests make a donation to Advocate Children’s Hospital while they are there.
