    Pre-order my book before its release on October 22nd for access to exclusive content!

    This week we're heralding the arrival of National Pizza Month (aka every month ever?) with a true Binging with Babish conceptual reach - using Jon Stewart's famous rant against Chi-Town's deep-dish speciality as an excuse to make some ourselves. With cups of sauce and pounds of cheese held at bay by a towering levee of buttery, flaky crust, how could you not like Chicago-style deep-dish pizza? Assuming you've never tried New York-style pizza, of course.

      So you would rather have frozen sauce other than frozen cheese? You are crazy.

    NOOOOOOO!!!!!! it doesn't have a thick crust. the crust is relatively thin. Its a PIE! the ingredients are thick.

      "This is a recipe for a 12 inch cast iron skillet, or roughly enough to feed 30 to 35 people." Sounds legit.

        Deep dish is merely one kind of chicago pizza. Why don’t you come try some thin crust chicago pizza, far better than a floppy grease triangle

            Most Chicagoans don't eat deep dish regularly. Just once, I would like someone to cover Chicago-style thin crust pizza.

                deep dish is not the only pizza in chicago
                it is not comparable to new york style because it's trying to do its own thing
                all it asks for is acceptance
