Chicago Style Pizza

Chicago Style Pizza Definition

Chicago Style Pizza is a heavy, pan-cooked pizza. It features a thick buttery crust pressed up along the sides of the pan and covered with about an inch of mozzarella, toppings, and a chunky, canned tomato sauce—a deep-dish pizza made in a high-sided pan, usually a cast iron pan.

The Chicago Style pizza crust is coated with oil, and ingredients are layered inside. Chicago Style Pizza originated from the original Pizzeria Uno in Chicago.
