The Story Behind the Food

Our Roots

Establishing Roots

Here's the story.

Bringing the Quad Cities to the Windy City.

Roots Handmade Pizza was born in the Quad Cities, raised in Chicago. It’s what happened when a bit of hometown nostalgia met our obsession with inventive, made-from-scratch food.

Imported recipes. Local ingredients.

Authentic Quad Cities-style pizza. Hand crafted comfort food made with fresh, local ingredients. House-made sodas and organic sweets for the kids.

A Midwest-only beer list and late-night HOURS for the night owls. So come on in. Bring the kids. It’s a new Chicago tradition, and it’s damn good.

Our menu gives to The Trotter Project.

Roots is proud to partner with The Trotter Project and its scholars to create special pizzas throughout the year. The proceeds from these pizzas benefit The Trotter Project and its programs.
