Robert's Pizza & Dough Co.

Give back when you eat pizza in October! To celebrate National Pizza Month, Robert’s Pizza founder Robert Garvey has committed to fundraising for breast cancer awareness and research. During the month of October, $1 from every Lia and Cup & Char Pizza will be donated to Real Men Wear Pink of Greater Chicagoland by the American Cancer Society.

When asked why Robert’s is supporting Real Men Wear Pink, Garvey said, “Breast cancer affects everyone. Since I’m in a position to make a difference within my community, I have an obligation to do so.”

The Lia is a classic cheese featuring mozzarella and fresh tomato sauce and the Cup & Char is a classic pepperoni with Calabrian peppers, fresh mozzarella, and tomato sauce. Whether you grab a pie to-go or dine in while soaking up Chicago’s final patio days, ordering one of these classic pizzas gives back to a great cause.
