If you want deep dish or a traditional pepperoni pizza like you’d find at any national chain this is not the place! Brutta pizzas are thin crust, like you find in Italy. Our favorite is a simple margherita with crushed tomato, fresh basil, buffala mozzarella...More

Wonderful wood fired pizza. No frills, order at the counter and they bring your pizza to the table. The food more than makes up for the atmosphere. Fresh and plentiful toppings on a beautiful wood fired crust. Reasonable prices and great variety seal the deal.

I am not sure about the gluten free but i think there is pepperoni. You should be able to access the menu on their website.
