Bottoms Up Pizza

I must say I was excited when I noticed they offer build your own slices of pizza with vegan cheese as an option. When I got my reciept and noticed it was $25 for two slices and a beer I was no longer excited. Now to the pizza part - It wasn't THAT good. I mean it was pizza, but it wasn't good pizza. The dough texture is actually hard to describe really. Like it was thick but airy. Crispy but dense. Very thick, but not in the chicago style sense of the word. I would not return.

Pros: Vegan soy cheese, Pizza by the slice
Cons: Long wait, Expensive
