I have only been to Chicago a couple of times. But I will say, their deep dish pizza makes an impression on you! I hope to make more trips to the windy city to enjoy some. I found this recipe on Pinterest. It looked like the real deal so I just had to try it. Plus, the original creator of the recipe was Cooks Illustrated and they are known for doing the research to make a recipe as authentic as possible. This is seriously was one of the best recipes I have ever tried! So delicious!! I made it as described in the recipe below and my family inhaled it! I will be making a double recipe next time!
The length of the recipe can be a little intimidating but the steps are very easy to follow. Give it a try. You won't regret it!
Chicago-Style Deep-Dish Pizza - The genius behind this recipe is really Cooks Illustrated, but you can't link to any recipe on their website, if you do not have a subscription. This recipe was featured in their January/February 2010 issue. I found the recipe on Annie Eats.
