A few words about Piero’s Pizza

Located in Wilmette, The Caporossi family-run Piero’s Pizza has been delighting the North Shore with wonderful pizza creations for over 29 years. Groundbreaking in his inventive use of ingredients, the founder, Filiberto Caporossi, brought his recipes from Campofilone, Italy and still plays an important creative role.
The Caporossi family come from Campofilone, in eastern Italy. The town of Campofilone was founded in the Dark Ages along the external walls of a Benedectine Abbey dedicated to St. Bartalomeo, who is still today the town’s Patron Saint. In the 12th century the Monastery came under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Fermo and remained so until the year 1342. Many parts of the embattlements are still visible along with the tower and the many churches, which contain paintings by Fontana and Achilli.
Campofilone is famous for its Maccheroncini, an egg pasta which is home-made by many of the local women even today. For more than 30 years during the first week of every August thousands of people visit the “Maccheroncini Fair”- they are enticed by this local speciality and by the warm hospitality of the township.
Campofilone itself is an attractive tourist spot with its mix of old and new and the fact that it finds itself in a area where clean sea, green countryside and rolling hills meet together in rare beauty.
Winning Orders. The Big Cheeses of Chicago Pizza. Thick Pizza. This was essentially a tie with Gino’s East, earning two-lenghts of a point more in the third and most critical round (which explains the non-alphabetical listing above).
“Piero’s Pizza is mainly a take-out place, but it has a couple of seats if you’re desperate. It is the best pizza anywhere. The crust is perfect, as are the sauce and cheese”.
“The stuff of which stuffed pizza is made! Piero’s Pizza makes the best stuffed pizza on the North Shore, at unusually reasonable cost. Although it’s primary a carry-out place, it is the place my family turns to most when I’m not reviewing and the craving for pizza strikes.”
