Hawaiian Cowgirl, Buffalo Pizza & Ice Cream

Buffalo Pizza & Ice Cream changed ownership a few years back, and the result has been better, more innovative pies, including tasty vegan options. Choose from various toppings—including tofu, nutritional yeast and Nacheez (a nacho cheese-esque sauce)—or go with one of the shop’s specialties. The Hawaiian Cowgirl ($11-$29) is particularly delicious. Made with red sauce, garlic Nacheez, pineapple, vegan sausage and barbecue sauce, it boasts a hearty, nuanced flavor. Buffalo’s owners are planning to expand into a full-service pizza joint in Oak Park—exact date still to be determined. 2600 21st Street
