Hey folks, I am staying in Vernon Hills for work and am really hoping to try some authentic Chicago-style pizza. Anyone know of a place that makes really yummy pizza in the area? I am willing to travel about 50 miles or downtown. Any info would be much appreciated!!

Here are a few Chicago-style pizza places, in order of my crazy bestness ratings. Chicago-style pizza places typically don’t offer vegan cheeses, so vegan often means a vegan crust and no cheese. In fact, by definition, Chicago-style pizza would have cheese. Many offer lunch specials, with the best lunch special at Pequod’s. Chicago-style pizza is a contentious issue, and this list is not comprehensive.

Deep Dish:
http://www.yelp.com/b...­ – Burt's Place, crust is vegan, reservations required, in Morton Grove, IL, a special place, owner Burt Katz opened pizzerias The Inferno (out of business), Gullivers, and Pequods

http://pequodspizza.c...­ Pequod's Pizza, crust is vegan, normally they caramelize crust with cheese in pan, weekday lunch special is $4.95 personal one topping pizza with a beverage (draft beer or soda), Chicago, IL

http://www.loumalnati...­ – Lou Malnati's, crust is vegetarian (butter), some carry out locations not too far from Vernon Hills like Libertyville, closest full-service restaurant in Buffalo Grove, IL

http://www.unos.com/...­ – Uno’s and Due’s, crust is vegan, normally they caramelize crust with cheese in pan, two classic locations in Chicago near Ohio/Ontario and Wabash, a new Uno's in Gurnee, IL

http://www.ginoseast....­ – Gino's East, crust is vegetarian (eggs), with a location in Libertyville, IL

http://www.silopizza....­ – The Silo, crust is vegan, near Vernon Hills, good pizza, fun place

Stuffed:
http://pieropizza.com...­ – Piero's Pizza, crust is vegan, carry out, fresh tasting stuffed spinach with garlic and/or onions, in Highland Park and Northbrook, IL

http://giordanos.com/...­ – Giordano's, vegan dough, butter on the pan, NOT a fan of Giordano’s, I consider the sauce boring

http://www.nancyspizz...­ – Nancy's, crust is vegetarian (butter), go for the stuffed spinach, or carry out

other styles:

Brick Oven Pizza:
http://sonowoodfired....­ SONO Wood Fired, http://www.pizzeriase...­ Pizzeria Serio, http://spaccanapolipi...­ Spacca Napoli, http://coalfirechicag...­ Coalfire, all these are in Chicago

New York Style:
http://www.piecechica...­ Piece, https://www.dimospizz...­ Dimo's (large vegan selection with vegan slices, especially at new larger Six Corners location near North and Damen), both in Chicago

...and many more
