I live in Chicago and the only kind I know of off the top of my head is Lou Malnati's. I had it for the first time on Friday and it was amazing. There is no crust, in its place is sausage. You'll need a fork to eat it, but it was so delicious.

You don't even have to special order ahead of time. You can walk right in/call and place your order just like ordering any other pizza. It was the first time in 4 years I felt like I truly had a pizza. I nearly cried.

I am going to Chicago in November for a few days and definately want to have some deep-dish gluten free pizza. I have read of a few places that offer it, but who has the best?!

Sorry; I don't know about deep dish - that's more of a tourist thing than a native Chicagoan habit, at least in my experience.

But in case you might be interested in "regular" pizza, too, Aurelio's has always been a favorite of mine. I grew up in the south suburbs, and the original restaurant is down in Homewood. But there are franchises all over the Chicago area now, and I was tickled this summer when I found out they were doing gluten-free pizza. I thought I'd never have their pizza again.

I think they're just using Kinnickinnick crusts, actually, but for me it's all about the sauce and toppings, anyway, and in that sense it was just like old times! And I didn't get sick, so it seems like they're being careful about cc.

Here's a link to their locations:

I don't think all the locations do gluten-free, so make sure you call the specific one you want and check on it.

Sorry I can't help w/the deep dish, but the Malnati's sounds like a great option.

I just tried Aurelio's gluten free pizza this past weekend. I just got it with pineapple on it. It was pretty good. I mean, it wasn't the best pizza I've ever had but it's a great eating out option. I usually make pizza with the Glutino crusts and I prefer those but Aurelio's is great when you're not in the mood for cooking. I'd suggest it to anyone. =) Good luck with your search!

I really really really love Rose's Wheat Free Bakery in Chicago. They are 100% gluten free and their pizza is fantastic!

I second this. It's not deep dish (but I'm not really sure if there is deep dish gluten-free pizza in Chicago), but the quality is topnotch. Even my bf, who's not a celiac, loves it. Marcello Father and Sons is good in a pinch, but their gluten-free dough is frozen, so it tastes like frozen pizza with really good, fresh toppings. I'd say go to Da Luciano's for any other kind of Italian food other than their pizza.
