The United Center is the home of the streaking Chicago Bulls. As of this writing they have won five straight games. Who said we were going to only win 16 games this year?! I got to witness them beat Kristaps Porzingis and his New York Knickerbockers. It was also great to see Bennie the Bull again as well. I specifically enjoyed watching the Bulls players attempt to defend a 7’3” unicorn in Kristaps Porzingis.
While I was there to attend the game, I was also able to eat some good pizza. As I have written a few times before, the United Center has always had OUTSTANDING pizza. They used to have the most amazing wood fired Digiorno’s pizza topped with oregano. They then moved to more local Connie’s Pizza at the concession stands. Connie’s sells deep dish pizza, not stuffed. They have cheese and pepperoni. The pizza is delicious. They also have a wood fired thin crust pizza that is cooked to order, Woodgrain Pizza.
Woodgrain Pizza is fantastic. The pizza is cooked to order, thus it is piping hot when you receive it. They also have many different options and the ability to build your own pizza. There is only one location at the stadium and it sells out quickly but if you get there before half time you are sure to get one of the best stadium pizzas money can buy. It is just that good. It is also asthetically pleasing. It has its own little seating area. They also have grated parmesean cheese and crushed red pepper.
The Woodgrain Pizza location can be found not far from the trophy case displaying the six NBA Finals Championship trophies. They also have locations in the city. If you are at the United Center you can’t go wrong with the pizza, but the Woodgrain Pizza is the best option. I can’t wait to go back.
