What kind of pizza is this?
« on: August 04, 2008, 04:05:37 PM »
I've been using DKM's Chicago Style Deep Dish recipe from the front page of this site, and the results have been fantastic!  Everyone who's tried a slice has said that it was the best pizza they'd ever had.  :chef:

So my question is, is there a particular style that this recipe is close to, such as Malnati's, or Gino's?  It's been 30 years since I've been to Chicago, and I really can't remember one place from another, but the wife gets up there frequently, and I'd like to be able to send her to a couple of places to compare theirs to mine.

Thanks for the help, and here's a pic of my latest meager effort:

The one on the main page is based on the old Chicago Style recipes that were found in most cook books and is a generic recipe.

I still use it quite often and it is one of my favorites.  Though people love to point out real Chicago style pizza doesn't have cornmeal it is used, not for color, but for texture.

Have her try all the top joints and compare.
