Delicious Deep Dish!! - Edit

We were blown away by this pizza.. Cheesy, flaky crust, delicious sauce-everything that you want in deep dish!! My boyfriend isn't even vegan, but he LOVED this. The cookie was yummy too, and the Kombucha was on point. The service was also really good. Such a nice lady working the register.

Pros: Stellar food!, Awesome service. , Great location!

Cons: Only disposable silverware and plates.

ONE star! Don’t waste your money or time - Edit

Happy Cow automatically allocates one star on top of the customer rating just for being a fully veg/vegan establishment, but I wouldn’t even rate this one full star. We’ve given this place so many chances, but we don’t like anything we’ve had here. I’ve had my fair share of vegan pizza from all over the country, but I can make it at home better than anything I’ve had here. The dough has never been cooked all the way through on any deep dish, neither the sauce nor the dough has any flavor, when you order toppings you either get next to none or wayyyyyy too much, there’s no in between. Pepperoni was super dry. I’m not trying to be mean or rude with this review, but I have nothing good to say about any order from here. since literally all they do is pizza, it seems like it would be the best I’ve ever had, not the worst.

Cons: raw dough, excessive toppings , dry, tasteless meat alternatives

jammie83 27 Feb 2018 - Hi, I'm one of the owners at The Chicago House of 'Za. First i wanted to apologize for your experience. You said you've given us many chances, yet you've never mentioned you were dissatisfied. We appreciate feedback and try to accommodate any requests. Had you have said something any of the times you have been in, we would have made changes to suit your taste preferences.
As for the raw dough, it if fully possible that you are mistaken cheese for dough, since our stuffed pizza has a thin layer of dough on top. But again if this was brought to our attention we would have been able to fix it.
Thanks for your honest feedback.

Best Pizza Ever! - Edit

Visiting from Ohio we were in search of some awesome vegan pizza, and we found it! Definitely order ahead unless you want to wait inside 45min, they have a small dining area though. We got a calzone, a stuffed pizza, and a regular pan pizza and they were all delicious! The homemade vegan cheese was some of the best I’ve ever had. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and we had a great conversation. I wished I lived in Chicago so I could come here all the time!

Good but needs a lot of work - Edit

The atmosphere of the seated area could have been worked on but the server Ann was really friendly. The pizza was good, not the best vegan pizza I’ve ever had but still decent. The wait was a little longer than I would have liked, but I was happy to wait for a good pizza. The prices are pretty steep and it’s a shame that they use disposable plates and cutlery as it seems like a bit of a waste. Not to mention a plastic fork can’t cut into a deep dish pizza no matter how hard you try.

Pros: Customer Service, Taste

Cons: Price, Atmosphere, Use of disposable cutlery and plates

yum! - Edit

All I have to say is WOW! I got stuffed crust with Spinach and stuffed mushrooms. I had high expectations and they were exceeded. My friend picked it up so I can’t speak to the ambience but the woman who took my order was very sweet and helpful. What a great addition to Chicago’s vegan scene!

Pros: great food , friendly staff

Great pizza, nice people - Edit

Came here with two non-veg friends and their two kids. We got two small pizzas: (1) broccoli and pepperoni, and (2) spinach, roasted red pepper, onion and green olive. Both pizzas came with house made cashew mozzarella. Everyone enjoyed the food. The owners and staff were really friendly, kudos to them for bringing a vegan pizza place to Chicago! The only thing I wish were different is that they would use reusable cups, dishes and cutlery. Currently, they only use plastic forks/knives and sell canned drinks or boxed water. It's not right to have so much disposable waste in this day and age. The place is new so hopefully they can improve on this. Otherwise, a very good experience.

Pros: Good food, Nice staff, Reasonable price

Cons: All disposable items

Great eats! 🍕👌 - Edit

We've visited several times now and everything's been great! The pizza is flavorful with
housemade cashew mozzarella and seitan. Deep dish, focaccia, choc chip cookies are spot on and the mozzers are the best around! 🔥🔥👌👌

Pros: all vegan , good value, friendly staff

Amazing vegan pizza - Edit

I've been eating their pizza at least once a week for lunch since they opened. Sooo good and the owners are SO sweet. All of the cheese, meats, etc are house made and the crust has great texture. Also love the stuffed mushrooms. Would absolutely recommend.

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff, Good portions

Cons: Sometimes things sell out early

Pizza!!! - Edit

I just had their deep dish pizza and it’s AMAZING! The cheese is really gooey, which is usually impossible to find in a vegan pizza. So happy this place opened up and that they deliver on Grubhub.
