Sicilian vs. Chicago Style
« on: November 10, 2006, 04:52:04 PM »
It seems these two pie, relitive to the crust are very close to being the same.  Aside from one being baked in a square pan and the other round, what gives?

 pizzaeater,
 From the majority of recipes being used for Sicilian and Chicago deep dish it is fair to say that a deep dish uses considerably more oil. This will be noticable in the finished taste and texture. Also a chicago deep dish uses corn oil, vegtable oils and a small bit of Oliveoil sometimes. A Sicilian will usually call for olive oil. At higher oil pecentages these differences will be very noticeabe.
