Aurelio's Pizza

Brandie and I were heading up to Chicago to see our niece in a 4th of July parade and celebrate her birthday. I did some research and found Aurelio’s offered gluten free pizza, and there was one on the way to Chicago. We were not impressed. The crust was overdone in some spots and underdone in others, and the sauce was mediocre at best. That combined with a 6”x6” pizza for almost $8 made it my least favorite pizza ever. I wouldn’t eat there again, especially with such great GF pizzas as Monical’s, Uno’s, or Gino’s (especially the latter two since they’re all around the Chicago area). Brandie ate non-GF friendly foods: breadstick, regular pizza – and she was very disappointed as well.
And according to great sites like Gluten-Free Registry ( and Urban Spoon (, there are a growing number of restaurants offering gluten free pizza in and around Chicago. I hope to make more trips to Chicago to try them out…
Oh, and visit my sister and her family, too.
