Turnpike Pizza specializes in New York–style pizza Philly Cheesesteaks and northwestern brews. The restaurant takes on an air similar to a cafe, with floor-to-ceiling windows, a handwritten menu board. The staff even reserves a corner booth for a family of whirring bean grinders. Chefs use wooden peels to remove thin-crust pies from the oven, instead of using it to swim through the stream of marinara sauce that flows through the kitchen. They can craft pizzas to fit dietary restrictions by sprinkling on fistfuls of vegan cheese or baking the best tasting gluten-free crusts. Gelatiamo gelato and sorbets cool tongues after hot meals, and pitchers of craft beers and glasses of Italian wine can cool them during meals.
