What makes us different?
I've been in the kitchen helping my family make Italian Sausage since I was 5 years old. I grew up clinging to my grandmother's & mother's arm overlooking the stove as they made Sunday Gravy & dinners while the guys would watch football in the front room. I know the kitchen. I know food. I know giardiniera. So what makes our Chicago Johnnys Giardiniera great?

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!
It took me 2 years of trying to make a perfect Tavern Style Pizza with that famous Chicago "Cracker Crust" we all love. I developed this recipe for use with a pizza pan after trying to cook in a friend's oven without a pizza stone. Since not everyone has a pizza stone, this kit allows any person to make that classic Chicago Cracker Crust at home!
We use imported 00 flour from Italy for that truly elastic crust. We use California fresh packed tomatoes for our sauce, they don't even taste like they came out of a can. And we use our Chicago Johnnys "Perfect Pizza Seasoning" for that authentic Chicago taste. Comes with a copy of my recipe which took 2 years to properly develop!
Did you know?
Did you know you can smoke giardiniera? Throw your giardiniera & oil in a foil pan & put it on the smoker for about an hour & a half, stirring each half hour. It's that easy! Use smoked giardiniera to add intense flavor to your baked beans, pulled pork, Italian Sausage sandwiches, & to enhance your best grilled cheese sandwich.
If you want to try out smoked Chicago Johnny's Giardiniera you can stop by Wrigley BBQ on Broadway & Addison in Chicago. Wrigley BBQ smokes our giardiniera for specials & sandwiches. To my knowledge, it's the only place in Chicago using smoked giardiniera. Say hi to Mitch at http://wrigleybbq.com/
