First crack at deep dish
« on: September 13, 2014, 09:26:05 AM »
Made a deep dish last night using a recipe found in the sticky. 300g 90/10 KAAP, Bobs semolina
1/2 tsp IDY, salt. 18% corn oil 6% olive 1% butter 47% water.

It came out great, but I have to say it's not my favorite style. I think I will stick to NY, but it was fun to do and wow a 12" is ALOT of pizza.

There are a lot of ways to respond to this.

A. Defensive: Nice troll, but there are some problems with that pie, as pictured.
B. Sarcasm: I went to a symphony concert the other night.  Beethoven's seventh.  It was great, but I have to say it's not my favorite style.  I'll stick to Britney Spears.
C. Simpatico: Yeah, for most Chicagoans, DD is a sometimes thing, not an all the time thing.  I get it.

Not for my family.  We eat it weekly.

 Hence the word "most."

Thin crust outsells deep dish by margins of 50:1 or 100:1 (if not higher) in the Chicagoland area.

Yes I bet.  Chicago is already the fattest in the country.  Just imagine if people ate more deep dish.

Ya I love making and eating pizza, but its bad on the waist.  My families favorite style so far is a thin crust (ny) with just cheese and light toppings.

Im sure I will be doing one of these again, my favorite deep dish I remember having was from Numero Uno. It had a very sweet and oily crust like it was fried in oil.  Anyone remember this?  Any recipes out there?

Um, no. Chicago doesn't even crack the top ten.

Memphis, TN is the fattest.

I was going off old data I heard from 2006.  I assumed it stayed the same.
