Gluten-free deep dish arrives in Chicago
Like the Cubs and Al Capone, deep-dish pizza is classic Chicago--not necessarily good for you but still addictive.
But if you’re gluten-free, you’re kinda out of luck. After all, there’s no way someone could create a gluten-free pizza as good as Lou’s or Gino’s, right?
Kiki Michalakos, of Kiki’s Gluten-Free Foods in Arlington Heights, just introduced three totally gluten-less pizzas (cheese, Italian sausage and vegan/dairy-free), which are available for delivery or pickup (frozen or ready-to-eat) at both Gulliver’s Pizza locations and online at Artizone.
And they’re totally Chicago-worthy.
We picked up a frozen cheese pie and a sausage (both $15) from Gulliver’s, cooked them at home for about 25 minutes (at 425 degrees) and then proceeded to stuff our face.
Each pizza tasted almost exactly the same as a regular deep dish, though we noticed less grease--and they were just a tad thinner than your go-to from Pequod’s.
Either way, the pizzas were cheesy, crispy and plenty caloric.
Not smart, but totally worth it. It’s a Chicago thing.
