Living gluten-free in a city like Chicago can be quite the challenge, with nearly every day a constant battle for who produces the greatest deep dish. But no worries, Chicagoites, Homeslice Wheelhouse has got your back. If you’re a fan of artisan pizzas with a gluten-free crust option, a killer cocktail and beer selection, and a plethora of big screens fit to project any sporting event, then this is the place for you. Whether you’re enjoying the woodsy, log cabin-like atmosphere inside or dining outside on their heated patio, Homeslice’s thin crust, Oregon-style pizza is always a breath of fresh air from the cheesy mess usually associated with Chicago-style pizza.
Homeslice’s pizza menu is separated into three sections: “The Meats,” “The Bird,” and “Meat Free.” All of their pizza combinations are unique and delicious, but some favorites are the Meet Mary, featuring Canadian bacon, Italian sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, red onions, provolone, mozzarella and marinara, the Shira Palin, with roasted chicken, portabella, mushrooms, spinach, roasted garlic, roma tomatoes, ricotta, mozzarella, provolone, garlic, and olive oil, and the Da Duba, including fresh roma tomatoes, artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, fresh basil, feta, mozzarella, provolone, garlic, and olive oil. If you prefer creating your own meal, you can always build your own pizza, choosing from five different sauce bases and a surplus of topping options.
This Lincoln Park pizza joint also touts a very impressive brunch menu, consisting of indulgent dishes like the Breakfast Za with cracked eggs, bacon, cheddar, and black pepper, and the Hangover Cereal, your choice of cereal with milk, RumChata, and Fireball.
The Homeslice beverage team has also made a great name for themselves in the short amount of time they’ve been open. Homeslice has been granted several awards for their libations, including Best Bloody Mary Skewers by UrbanDaddy and Best Moscow Mule by RedEye Chicago. Besides their cocktails, Homeslice has an impressive number of beers in bottles, and at least 13 to 15 variations on tap at all times.
Homeslice is the perfect place to dine before a night out in the area, with many of Lincoln Park’s best bar spots right around the corner. Opt for undoubtedly the best gluten-free crust in the city and a pitcher of your favorite beer or cider to start your night off right.
