Chicago-Style Pizza

Chicago-style pizza, originating in Chicago, USA, is renowned for its deep-dish, casserole-like structure. It features a thick and buttery crust forming a deep bowl that holds layers of cheese, toppings, and chunky tomato sauce. The unique assembly, with cheese and toppings beneath the sauce, prevents burning during its longer bake time. Slices resemble wedges due to its density, offering a substantial and hearty eating experience that has become an iconic representation of Chicago’s culinary identity.
