In addition to a couple of baseball teams and some of the very bravest souvenir snatchers in the country, Chicago is known as the home of two legendary foodstuffs: deep dish pizza and the Chicago-style hot dog.

The above piece of art (... piz-za art?) will be sold during Chicago's six-game homestand from July 15-20 and includes the following: Vienna Beef hot dogs, baked inside Giordano's crust with tomato sauce and cheese, all topped with the traditional Chicago hot dog toppings -- mustard, onions, sport peppers and even pickles.
