    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.

    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

    This looks like a Marinara sauce and cheese tart. I'm pretty sure you can't define that "a pizza".
    Ps: we italians basically look at NY pizza the same way newyorkers look at Chicago pizza

    The only thing that’s not pizza is St. Louis style pizza, I live in stl and I despise stl style, pizza is the only thing Chicago does better, we’re a more dangerous city with shitty pizza

    I don’t really care about deep dish or New York style pizza I like my pizzas thick, firm on the outside, soft on the inside, and with cheese and pepperoni 👌🏻

    Chicago is stuffed pizza... Detroit is deep dish...New York is a flat pie....and any pizza made in Canada is a "Manitoba sauce bread"'s simple folks, you're welcome, no need to build a statue. It's a Civic duty

    "It's not pizza, therefore it sucks." - Jon Stewart
    By *that* logic, prime rib, a French omelet cooked by Jacques Pepin, cheeseburgers, burritos, donuts, pulled pork, smoked salmon, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, etc. all suck too. Deep dish pizza may or may not be pizza, but whatever it is, it's delicious.

    You should make a book called The Clean Plate Club and fill it with your clean plate club members, whether they’re from the show or exclusives to your own tastes. maybe even get some interviews with chefs you love about the dishes in their restaurants that have earned a spot.

    Been wanting to make one of these for a long time.

    Finally did it!

    Came out very good.

    Didn't have a cast iron pan, so used an all-clad.

    Had trouble getting the dough to stick up on the sides; kept sliding down.

    Could not get the pie out of the pan in one piece. Ended up taking it out slice by slice.

    Will make this again indeed.

    Anybody know how he measured the flour? Top of scale or cup?

  • Ken Lackner
    Ken Lackner 10 days ago

    Are the dry ingredients for the dough measured by weight or volume? (This is a perfect example of why we just need to switch to metric.)

    Most controversial pizza? When I was in Japan we went to a Cajun-themed pizza buffet place that had a mayo pizza. Maybe its just that I can only at best tolerate mayo, but I found the idea pretty terrible.
