Killing Pizza, Not Animals

The Chicago House of 'Za

Vegan Pizzeria


Our Story

Thank you for choosing The Chicago House of ‘Za,  In our Family like many others, food paves the way for memories. We've always loved to sit at the table telling stories, sharing experiences, and reconnecting over a home cooked meal or some classic pizza.  We started out in 2017 as a small carry out pizzeria located in Chicago's Lakeview area. We grew up with Chicago style pizza and wanted to share our cruelty free version with the neighborhood. It was pretty clear early on that there were so many others that felt the same passion we did when eating pizza with friends and family.  We relocated to 1939 Byron in Chicago's North Center neighborhood in 2019, with hopes to continue growing, and bringing vegan cuisine to more and more people. We are grateful to all of you for dining with us and allowing us to be a small part of your lives. You may notice our children, mothers, friends and family here serving you, preparing your meal, or just hanging out. We believe that family is brought together with memories at the table. So when you’re here you’re family. Quality is important to us, so we always prepare everything in house. All of our Cashew based cheese, marinara, dough, and seitan meats are made fresh daily. Everything is made to order, cruelty free, and made with love just for you so its understandable that your food takes some time to get to your table. We use fresh ingredients from the earth, and in doing so the possibility of seeds and stems sneaking in the food is possible. It is nature's way of letting you know it cares. At times items may run out or no longer be available. In such times substitutions may be used. We are a vegan establishment and as such it is our philosophy, as well as our way of living to exclude all forms of exploitation, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. 

If there is anything we can do to make your visit more enjoyable, please don’t hesitate to speak with anyone of us!

Amazing place!! The vegan deep dish is absolutely to die for. I have brought my entire family here (I am the only vegan in my family) and everyone said that they could not tell it was a vegan pizza. The quality is wonderful, staff is so lovely. I went on my birthday and they gave me some dessert on the house. Cannot recommend enough.

Super great place, the owner is very sweet and kind and I am so happy to see this business grow and thrive! Had deep dish regular sauce and cheese was pretty amazing, had leftovers for days. Also the cold American sub was outstanding, its the closest sandwich and sandwich meat I ever tasted to its cruel counter part. Can't wait to be back in Chicago for more next time.
