She didn’t call Dimo’s “good as hell,” but she really did enjoy her vegan pizzas.
Superstar singer and flutist Lizzo performed last week at the United Center and needed a late-night snack. That resulted in giving a local pizzeria one of the best gifts possible: a glowing 10/10 TikTok review.
The staff at Dimo’s Pizza, with locations in Wicker Park, Wrigleyville, the Loop, and Lincoln Square, is reveling in the social media gold that Lizzo provided in a weekend post. As of Monday morning, there were more than 340 comments and 21,000 likes.
In the one-minute video, Lizzo says she was reluctant to post a review, but then is seemingly stunned by how beautiful Dimo’s pizzas looked: “And the mac and cheese reveal: And guess what? Is vegan, bitch!” she says.
Lizzo is vegan. She received a vegan Mac’n’cheese and Buffalo seitan chicken pizza, a Dimo’s rep confirms. The pizzeria’s owners prefer not to say which location the pies came from, but add they didn’t know Lizzo (or her reps) had ordered pizza from them until they saw the post. Read more HERE
