Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza


Chicago is famous for its deep dish pizza. A pan with high edges is used to make this pizza and it’s stuffed with cheese and toppings of choice then sealed with another layer of dough and baked. The sauce goes on top along with Parmesan cheese, sometimes crushed garlic, Italian seasoning and baked again until nice and golden all around. The end result is stretchy cheese that is a spectacle!!
