First appearance

Gazzola's is a pizza parlor located at 316 Kinzie Street, in Chicago, Illinois. According to the owner, they use cornmeal in their crust.

Ted and Marshall made many road trips in college to this parlor, where they ate nothing but beef jerky and drank nothing but Tantrum. According to Ted, Gazzola's is a "filthy Mecca of spectacular if under cooked pizza", and it was on these trips that he and Marshall truly became bros. (Duel Citizenship)

"We begin with the first bite. Oh, the crunch! And then the marinara. That roiling lava of tomato and oregano-- it overtakes you! I'm falling! And that's... when she catches you. That chewy, voluptuous mistress, Mozzarella. Her oven-kissed cheeks crackle with warmth in your mouth, Cradling the sauce and the bread, Letting you know that from now on 'This is home.' This pizza is home."

- Marshall expressing his love for Gazzola's Pizza to Daphne in The Poker Game
They visited Gazzola's one last time in Duel Citizenship, when they learned it was being closed (later revealed because of rats), after which they suffered digestion issues that were (judging by Marshall's screaming to have it cut out) nothing short of sheer torturous agony.

In The Poker Game, it is revealed that Gazzola's has reopened under new management. Marshall, traveling through Chicago on the way to Barney and Robin's Wedding, asks Daphne to stop there, but she refuses after discovering that Gazzola's originally closed because of rats. Ted then orders a pizza to be delivered to Marshall in the Monstrosity on the freeway as it passes through the city.
