The news is hurting Chicago deep dish pizza makers.

Turns out that President Barack Obama, who spent years in Chicago, is having 140 people over to the White House on Friday night for a some deep-dish pizza - St. Louis deep dish pizza.

It seems during his campaign he had pizza from a restaurant in the Delmar Loop neighbhorhood called Pi.

That’s the story Pi assistant manager Lindsey Tornetto tells. Whatever happened, the restaurant says the owner and his business partner packed some dough, cheese and pizza pans in their suitcases and flew to Washington.

It all has Marc Malnati - owner of 30 Lou Malnati’s Pizzarias in the Chicago area - shaking his head. He says while he likes Obama’s economic policy, he thinks the president’s pizza policy should change, according to The Chicago Tribune newspaper.
