What’s that Pizza Style? Breaking Down the Deep Dish Pizza

Deep dish pizzas are not an easy feat.

One-to-two inches thick, this giant of the pizza world often requires a fork and knife to handle. From Chicago, the deep dish features a flaky and buttery crust (yum!) with hearty toppings and is more like a tomato pie than other pizza styles we’re familiar with.

There’s a couple things you need to know when you’re thinking about sitting down in front of a deep dish:

  1. You’re probably not going to be able to eat a whole one by yourself.
  2. Your stomach will thank you for ordering meat and vegetables in your pie (otherwise, there may be a little too much cheese).
  3. Order ahead, so you won’t have to wait too long.
