Sweet of the Week: Butterscotch Pudding at Stella Barra

Do You Love Butterscotch Pudding?

Can we talk about pudding for a minute? This is quintessential comfort food at its finest. From a velvety soft texture to its sultry smooth, borderline cloying flavors, it personifies what it means to be innately comforting. And yet, it is criminally overlooked for other attention hogs like doughnuts and ice cream. Such a satisfying Americana confection deserves better. And surprisingly, a California-based pizzeria is the one to save the day. Stella Barra is not only one of the greatest pizza openings in Chicago in quite some time, but the Santa Monica-based pizzeria also serves up some of the best pudding in the city.
