As a GF person, having a pizza that’s not a cracker crust is a treat in and of itself, let alone getting to have Chicago deep dish. Each time I’ve been they’ve been cautious and I’ve never felt sick after eating. A little bit pricey but worth it for something you don’t get very often!

I went here when they first opened up by my house and the waitress told me a pizza was gluten free, brought it out, let me eat an entire huge piece of deep dish, and then came out and said 'oh that's the wrong pizza' and handed me another one. To which my mom asked if the one I ate was gluten free and she lied straight to our faces and said yes. I was sick for three days because she messed up and couldn't just check in with the chef. Their pizza isn't that good, honestly dominoes is better than this place and they don't lie. The service is also very slow.

The taste of the gluten free deep wish was ok, but I immediately got sick within the hour. They use the same tong to grab onto the pans while slicing for you and I doubt they clean it between each table. I think that’s what made me sick since I only had 1 slice from that corner. The person who took our pizzas after to be wrapped up to go also didn’t know what gluten was, so I just threw the entire thing away. Definitely stay away if you’re sensitive.

Literally so good. My only complaint is the edges are a bit hard but the flavor is amazing and it didn’t crumple so it’s a 10 in my book. I don’t love deep dish so I didn’t get it but I loved that I had the OPTION. I feel like that’s so rare. I would definitely come here again.

Gluten free options, yes. But the Chicago style gluten free deep dish pizza was mediocre at best. Toppings were delicious, however the crust was chewy and challenging to eat.
