Hi Terry.  That pizza looks GREAT.  Interesting idea using a dd recipe to make a thin pizza.  My family seems to enjoy thin crust pizzas the most right now.

Yes, Lou Malnati's does have thin crust and from my experience, I'm quite certain they use the same dough that they use for deep dish.
I've also used my deep dish dough to make thin crust pizza at home with good results.

Your pics look great!  :chef:

If you're interested, I've attached a pic of the sauce I use for Chicago thin crust (and also for my Pequod Clone).
The only other thing I add to the sauce that isn't on the recipe pic is 1 tsp of dried marjoram.

In case you're curious, BTB and others give further insights in an old thread of similar nature.  I was less thrilled with this style, but yours looks great, Mojo Man!

Cheers,
Garvey
