Looks tasty!  I'd try it!

The crust on the outer edge looks pretty thick... almost too much bread.  I'd be curious to see a cross section of a slice?

Leo,

Maybe you are already aware of the fact that there is a deep-dish dough calculating tool at http://www.pizzamaking.com/dd-calculator.html. A typical range of thickness factors for the deep-dish style is about 0.11-0.135.

How is the Chicago deep-dish style doing in Mexico?

Peter thank you, yes I am using the DD calculator but didn't knew the TF range that is used for DD, thanks for the info, I will definitely do some adjustments for this coming weekend, theres only one pizzeria that offers DD here in TJ and it's not good, so that is why I wanted to give it a try, for being the first weekend selling it was pretty good I sold around 40 pies over the weekend, given the fact that I also offer NY Style which is my main one, I will keep improving and sharing my work.

And based on everyone comments I've checked Papa Del's DD photos omg it looks very similiar to what I'm doing, I did not wanted to copycat any other restaurant I just did it the way I thought it was going to be good, but thank you for the kind comments.

Leo.

No need to adjust if that's what you're going for!  I've never had Papa Del's (though I'm not far, so a trip may be in order) but my comparison basis is Pizanos, pictured here. 

And it sounds like you had some great success with it the first week out!  If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Hi guys I will share some customer pictures from this weekend that they posted on my FB page, only changes I made, I was adding cornmeal to the flour and I changed to semolina which I really liked better and adjusted the TF to .140 maybe I will adjust to .130 next week I am getting better unmolding the pies.

This weekend was crazy people is loving it, it's a sensation there is a lot of public for this style of pizza since there is only another pizzeria in town offering deep dish and to tell you the truth it's not very good, I am trying hard to get a true Chicago Style I still have a lot to learn about this style but it was a good start.
Regards Leo.

Looks awesome.  Crust looks like Gino's East without the yellow hue.  How are the tomatoes?  That should be the star of the show.  Are you cooking that in a deck oven or a conveyor?

That looks really good, and I don't even like Chicago casserole pizza.  ;D

Tomato sauce I am using 6/1 cans, I cook the sauce in low with lots of sauteed garlic and onion, oregano and fresh basil.
I am using a deck oven not conveyor.
