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.« Back to Glossary Index
