8 Best Places to Order Gluten-Free Pizza in Chicago

I think it’s safe to assume that the majority of the population loves pizza. Whether it be a classic cheese or a meat lovers or a veggie za, most people can’t resist pizza. With that being said, not everyone can have them. A large number of people are Gluten intolerant and sometimes it’s hard finding a good gluten-free pizza that won’t make your stomach turn and land you in the bathroom for the rest of the night.

Luckily though many restaurants and pizzerias have come to the realization that they need to be inclusive when it comes to dietary restrictions. We have created a list of the 8 best places to order gluten-free pizza in Chicago. All my fellow gluten-free eaters can now rest easy knowing that they won’t have to skip out on a Netflix and pizza night. For more gluten-free friendly restaurants, check out our guide here


Robert’s Pizza and Dough Company 

465 N McClurg Ct, Chicago, IL 60611


For Robert’s Pizza and Dough Company, a proper slice of pizza, when folded, cracks but does not break. Striking a perfect balance between “crunch and chew”, they mix, rest, ferment, and rise their dough. Their dedication to the perfect dough is what makes their pizza one of the best. And unlike some places, they offer ALL of their yummy pizza on a gluten-free crust. So if you were dying to try one but were worried, don’t be!

If you are looking for the best gluten-free pizza in Chicago, popular pizza options include The Jay pizza. The Jay is assembled with house made fennel sausage, calabrian peppers, fresh mozz, and tomato sauce. In addition, I recommend ordering the Cali Italia pizza. The Cali Italia pizza is made with asiago, mozzarella, and Gorgonzola cheese finished with fig preserve, prosciutto di parma, balsamic reduction, and shaved Parmigiano Reggiano.

938 W Webster Ave, Chicago, IL 60614 

I actually recently went to Homeslice because I wanted to see what the hype was about. And I can tell you this, if you want great vibes with plenty of photo ops AND delicious pizza, then you’ve come to the right place. All of their signature pizzas can be ordered with a gluten-free crust! However, the gluten-free pizza options are limited to the small pies. But, trust me, their “small” isnt quite so small.


I opted for their “Boyler Room” pizza and it’s verye simple, just cheese, marinera and pepperoni. But it was one of the best gluten-free pepperoni pizzas I have ordered in Chicago. Some of their other staples include, the BMZ (Big Meaty Ziser) made with canadian bacon, pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, black olives, cheddar, mozzarella, provolone & a ranch base, and the Lew-Wow, made with canadian bacon, pineapple, mozzarella, provolone & a marinara base.

Roots Handmade Pizza

2200 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, IL 60625

I’ve heard great things about Roots Handmade Pizza, but have never really tried it, but I know they’re known for their malt crusts! And like Homeslice, all of their 12” menu items can be transformed into delicious gluten-free pizzas and the cheese can be substituted for Vegan cheese. They even have some collabs featuring Joanna Stachon, Rick Ortiz, Jimmy Bannos Jr, and Brian Fisher. Joanna Stachon’s Pub Royale Butter Chicken Pizza features butter sauce, marinated chicken, ginger, curry, onions, paneer, methi, chili oil, lime and mozzarella.

Rick Ortiz’s Antique Taco Chili Cheese Curd Pizza features chorizo chili, cheddar curds, chihuahua cheese, mozzarella, pickled jalapeños and onions, avocado cream, tortilla strips, black olives and scallions. Jimmy Bannos Jr’s Purple Pig ‘Nduja Sausage Pizza features ‘Nduja sausage, tetilla cheese, giardiniera and mozzarella. And finally, Brian Fisher’s Entente Korean Fried Chicken Pizza features red pepper sauce, garlic puree, kimchi, mozzarella, smoked gouda, Korean fried chicken, scallions, sesame seeds and cilantro.

Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria

958 W Wrightwood Ave, Chicago, IL 60614

Lou Malnati’s gets bonus points for creativity with its “crustless” deep-dish pizza. The crust is actually a super-thin sausage patty, which makes this deep-dish extra sloppy. It tastes better than it sounds, but we wouldn’t recommend adding any heavy toppings because you might feel like a pig by the end of it. You can also order a gluten-free Crust, gluten-free Cheese, gluten-free Lou, or a gluten-free Malnati Classic.

Spacca Napoli

​​1769 W Sunnyside Ave, Chicago, IL 60640

This restaurant in Chicago features over 10 kinds of pizza that can be prepared gluten-free. Worried about cross-contamination? Don’t, they offer a choice between two cooking methods: on a sheet in the pizza oven with the regular pizzas, or in a separate oven on its own. Ingredients are carefully sourced from trusted vendors, many of which are unavailable anywhere else in Chicago.

Some of their pizza staples include the Cinque Formaggi, made with fior di latte, gorgonzola, fontina, caiocavallo, and pecorino, and the Puttanesca, made with blended San Marzano tomatoes, fior di latte, anchovies, black olives, capers, Piennolo tomatoes, and parmigiano reggiano.

Chicago’s Pizza

3114 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60657

Chicago’s Pizza may be the only pizzeria in Chicago to offer gluten-free pizza in three Chicago styles: thin, stuffed, and deep-dish. All three are made with this spot’s own gluten-free dough, which it’s perfected over several years, practically making them pioneers in the field of gluten-free pizza-making. For toppings, you can’t go wrong, but the prosciutto and goat cheese on thin crust is something special.

730 N Rush St, Chicago, IL 60611

Giordano’s is a Chicago Classic so I would highly recommend trying their gluten-free pizzas if you haven’t already. They offer 4 kinds of crusts and you can request it to be gluten-free. Of course, theyre famous for their stuffed deep dish, so I would recommend trying the Chicago Classic which is made with pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers & onions and/or the Bacon BBQ Chicken made with BBQ-basted chicken, bacon & balsamic onions. They replace the marinera with BBQ sauce too!
