    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.

    Deep dish pizza is not only not better than New York pizza, it's not pizza. It's a * casserole. I'm surprised Chicago hasn't thought to complete the deep dish pizza by putting canned onion rings on top. It's a cornbread biscuit, in which they've melted cheese on, and then, in defiance of God and man and all things holy, they poured uncooked marinara sauce atop the cheese. Atop. The cheese on top, the sauce naked, cold, on display like it's some sort of sauce

      As a Californian, I can say that NY pizza is really sweet. (At least the one I tried at Joe's Pizza was and literally everyone told me to try it there)

            Deep dish pizza is an abomination. Stewart has it right: This is not a pizza, it is a casserole. Or maybe a really lousy dessert. The bread is soggy and limp, and the toppings are insipid and too sweet to be called an entrée.

                  Deep Dish > NY Pizza. NY Pizza is just bread with a millimeter of sauce and cheese. Might as well be cheezy bread.

                    You should try a Detroit Style deep dish from Buddy's Pizza next time you're checking out the Detroit food scene.

                      As a Chicagoan, i will say that looks pretty legit. The thick crust is more of a Lou Malnatis approach, which is good, but I personally prefer the Giordanos approach which is a slightly thinner crust with more cheese and wayyy more sauce that is thicker and holds it's form...but to each their own

But I have one request! And for you to make the dinner from the office you know what dinner the one where one poor dundie award gets chucked at a plasma screen.

                                                                                            A loving fan! Jessica :)
