Unlawfully great pizza for the greater good!
The Illinois Holocaust Museum’s exhibition Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg was one of many things honoring the late great RBG this year. Stunning murals in Chicago and New York appeared after her September passing and many inspiring RBG quotes made it onto protest signs at women’s marches across the country earlier this year.
The latest tribute to the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was perhaps less expected and comes in the form of a deep-dish pizzeria that has cropped up in Old Town. Ruth’s Panmade Pizza is a new delivery-only spot specializing in butter-crust deep-dish pizzas. Both its name and logo honor the first Jewish woman to serve on the Court as well as the slogan ‘unlawfully great pizza for the greater good!’ and the $25 ‘RBG Supreme’ pizza.
To honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her relentless fight for women’s rights and gender equality Ruth’s Panmade Pizza has decided to donate 10% of all its proceeds to the Roger Baldwin Foundation of the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois.
RBG co-founded the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project and successfully tackled laws that treated women as second-class citizens. She participated in hundreds of gender discrimination cases and as director of the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project won five out of six gender discrimination cases that came before the Supreme Court.
Ruth’s Panmade Pizza can be found down on 1610 N. Wells Street inside Roots Old Town.
