Costco Deep Dish Pizza
« on: April 19, 2013, 01:09:49 AM »
Please don't be offended that i am placing this posting in the Chicago Style pizza, but i was not sure where to place a Deep Dish Pizza.

Has anyone else tried the Deep Dish Pizza that is made everyday by Costco Wholesale? it is a really good pizza. While they do not claim it as a Chicago Style Pizza or call it one, it certainly is a deep dish pizza and they sell a lot of them. I really like the price of $9.99 for such a tasty pizza like this. Just wanted to pass this on in case you don't feel like making a pizza at the moment.

Good point. I make so many pizzas at home that it is not often that I purchase a pizza. However, i will take some photos of this pizza (baked) and post them next time I buy one.

PS
This pizza has to bake for 50 to 60 minutes at 375 degrees. But it is worth the wait.

It is baked in that aluminum foil pan?  Just curious but have you ever had a real deep dish pizza from Chicago?

Yes, you bake it in that aluminum foil pan.

I have not had deep dish pizza in Chicago, but my favorite deep dish Pizzeria in the Seattle area is called Delfino's Chicago Style Pizza.  Here is there website below. They make a very good pizza.

I usually don't comment on these types of misinformed menu statements made by wanna be joints. But these guys sure got things twisted around(descriptions of what a Chicago DD is) so much it just makes me wonder where the hell they come from...fortunately, I do know where they are headed.  >:D

I was just gonna say, look at their "thin crust" cut into triangles!  you'd get laughed right out of Chicago (and wisconsin, and minnesota, and the dakotas) with a pizza like that!   

(no offence to you OP, just poking fun at the "chicago" pizza) :chef:

The menu says "you can have it cut into squares for an authentic chicago experience"  ;D

It also looks like about 50% of their deep dish pies have the cheese on top!

My buddy Dave (co-creator of the Pizza Factory clone recipe) and I have said that if we ever do open a pizza joint, there will be a $2.00 surcharge for "pie cut." (Party cut, of course, is free.)

Did you notice that their oven came out of Chicago? I think they are using the name "Chicago" to describe what their pizza is similar to. It's just a way to describe what they are trying to make. I must say that they make very good pizza. I have always like it.

However, i have not had a Chicago Deep Dish pizza that was made in Chicago. Perhaps one day, I will have to opportunity to try one.

If you live in Seattle, you should check out Zayda Buddy's in Ballard.  http://zaydabuddyspizza.com/  They have a decent Midwestern-style thin crust there (actually it's a Minnesota style, but to be honest it's the same style across the midwest).  It's not the best example of the style, but it suffices when you're 2000 miles away.   :chef:

Their stuffed pizza looks close.  Better than a few small pizza joints I have seen in Chicago.

This photo on Yelp looks like a great tasting pie that is from Delfino's Pizza in Seattle.
