Chicago House of 'Za

Perfect For:Vegetarians

As the name suggests, you should come here for one reason - pizza. In particular, deep dish pan-style pies. This is a counter service spot with limited seating, so it’s a good idea to order ahead and take your food to go. Each pie takes a while to prepare (they say 45 minutes and they mean it), and everything from the cashew-based cheese to the seitan toppings is made in-house. While it’s not as gooey as real cheese, the cashew cheese still has enough melty-ness that when combined with the sauce, it doesn’t feel totally inauthentic. This is definitely not healthy food, but if you’re a vegan Chicago native (or an NYC transplant who needs to expand your pizza repertoire), you should give it a try.
