METRO PIZZA

In 1905 Gennaro Lombardi
  established the first Pizzeria in America. It was located on Spring Street in
  the heart of New York's Little Italy. By good fortune, when our grandparents
  came to America they settled just 50 yards away. Ever since those early days,
  pizza has been at the center of our family life. Our parents got their first
  jobs feeding coal into the big bakery ovens where Sicilian pizzas were baked
  and carried out into the neighborhood to feed the immigrant families hungry
  for a taste of home. Over the years the time-honored skills of the Pizzaiolo,
  the pizza chef, have been handed down from our fathers, uncles, aunts,
  brothers and cousins - from one generation to the next.

As Italian immigrants settled
  across the country, they carried their love for combining food, family and
  friends with them to every corner of America. At Santarpio's in East Boston,
  the Home Run Inn on Chicago's South Side and at Tommaso's in San Francisco's
  North Beach, this tradition has continued and evolved. Every neighborhood has
  placed it's own personal stamp on it's local pizza. The debate over which
  city makes the best pizza will never be settled, because each of us has such
  warm memories of that first date or family gathering at our own neighborhood
  Pizzeria.

At Metro Pizza, we honor the great
  traditions of America's landmark Pizzerias. Our dough is made fresh each day
  from the finest wheat, hand-stretched and cooked on the stone of our hearth
  ovens. Our sauces are made from only the finest vine-ripened tomatoes and
  topped with select cheeses, choice meats and the freshest vegetables, herbs
  and spices available. Each of our pizzas is a hand-crafted labor of love,
  backed by three generations of experience. 

We believe that a true Pizzeria
  should be a gathering place for family and friends to relax, share great food
  and enjoy each other's company. We have visited hundreds of Pizzerias across
  the country, learning and gathering recipes to bring our guests a taste of
  home, wherever home might be.

I have been to Metro many times. They have Gluten Free pizza but you must ask the wait staff for it. Great sauce. Fun cooking classes too.
