Tried the gluten free deep dish. Was not as good as I had hoped. The flavor was a little bland. Texture was good. I didn’t get sick though. So, that was great! I think it’s definitely worth trying if you used to be a Lou Malnatti’s fan. Best gf pizza in Evanston though is Union Squared!

Best gluten free pizza I've ever tried. Just wish they made bigger sizes other than personal. Finally a good crispy crust that isn't .5mm thick!

They have a delicious Gf pizza but isn't something you can have too often! Instead of a normal bready crust there is a sausage crust. They just spread Italian sausage in the pan and then cover it in sauce and cheese. It is yummy but you can feel you arteries hard as you eat it.

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.
