Need help for sauce quaniitties for Chicago Style?
« on: February 08, 2009, 05:22:51 PM »
Sorta new to Chicago style. I'm making one 8" using DKM's recipe. Anyway I have some left over sauce from a couple NY Styles I made last night. I have a couple questions.

1. For an 8" pie, about how much sauce will I need? (I have about 1 1/2 cups left over)
2. DKM's recipe says to bake 20 to 25 min at 450 deg, will the bake time be the same for my 8"?

Many thanks
D

Pizzaeater - On a 14" pie, I use a 28 ounce can of 6in1 tomatoes drained.  An 8" pie has about 1/3rd the surface area of a 14" pie.  It's not really a sauce that I use, however.  I'm thinking a cup and a half of sauce may be a bit shy, assuming the sauce is thinner than the tomatoes.

As far as baking goes, I'm no expert, but I would cut the time by five to seven minutes and then check it.  But certainly, if it looks like the crust needs more browning, keep it in the oven. - Mazz
