The Logan Square outpost of the Brooklyn pizza joint serves up the same wood-fired pizzas its has in its other locations, all coming from an oven blasting at a hot 1,000 degrees. Crispy crusts filled with bubbles dominate the menu—like the Daniela Spinaci, with shaved Parmigiano Reggiano, fresh mozzarella, sliced garlic, baby spinach and olive oil. Want to depart from the original? Grab one of the Logan Squares, with a thicker crust and a crispy edge.

I am very picky when it comes to pizza. I was raised on suburban Chicago square-cut, thin-crust pizza--that's my religion. Aurelio's, Beggar's, Barone's of Glen Ellyn all day. I ventured out of my comfort zone to give the Detroit-style Logan Squares a chance at this spot. I did not regret my decision. They were still kind of a premium version of something you'd expect at Jet's Pizza, but the premium goes a long way. I tried both the signature Pepperoni Logan Square and the August special of the month, the Meatball Logan Square. They were both very good. I am not completely sold on the cold red sauce on top (I like my hot food hot), but the thick, squishy dough and crust are pretty wonderful. I'd recommend trying these novelty pizzas when you go, because when in Logan Square...
