One of America’s Favorites – Chicago-Style Pizza

May 28, 2018 at 5:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Deep-dish pizza from Gino’s East in Chicago

Chicago-style pizza refers to several different styles of pizza developed in Chicago. Arguably, the most famous of these is known as deep-dish pizza. The pan in which it is baked gives the pizza its characteristically high edge which gives a lot of space for large amounts of cheese and a chunky tomato sauce. Chicago-style pizza may be prepared in deep-dish style and as a stuffed pizza.

Deep-dish pizza
According to Tim Samuelson, Chicago’s official cultural historian, there is not enough documentation to determine with certainty who invented Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. It is often reported that Chicago-style deep-dish pizza was invented at Pizzeria Uno in Chicago, in 1943, by Uno’s founder Ike Sewell. However, a 1956 article from the Chicago Daily News asserts that Uno’s original pizza chef Rudy Malnati developed the recipe.

The primary difference between deep-dish pizza and most other forms of pizza is that, as the name suggests, the crust is very deep, creating a very thick pizza that resembles a pie more than a flatbread. Although the entire pizza is very thick, in traditional Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas, the crust itself is thin to medium in thickness.

Deep-dish pizza from Pizzeria Uno

Deep-dish pizza is baked in a round, steel pan that is more similar to a cake or pie pan than a typical pizza pan. The pan is oiled in order to allow for easy removal as well as to create a fried effect on the outside of the crust. In addition to ordinary wheat flour, the pizza dough may contain corn meal, semolina, or food coloring, giving the crust a distinctly yellowish tone. The dough is pressed up onto the sides of the pan, forming a bowl for a very thick layer of toppings.

The thick layer of toppings used in deep-dish pizza requires a longer baking time, which could burn cheese or other toppings if they were used as the top layer of the pizza. Because of this, the toppings are assembled “upside-down” from their usual order on a pizza. The crust is covered with cheese (generally sliced mozzarella), followed by various meat options such as pepperoni or sausage, the latter of which is sometimes in a solid patty-like layer. Other toppings such as onions, mushrooms and bell peppers are then also used. An uncooked sauce, typically made from crushed canned tomatoes, is added as the finishing layer; though sometimes, a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese is added for extra flavor. It is typical that when ordered for carry-out or delivery, the pizza is uncut, as this prevents moisture from the sauce and toppings from soaking into the crust, causing the pie to become soggy.

Some Chicago deep-dish pizza restaurants ship their pizzas, partially baked and frozen, within the continental United States.

Stuffed pizza

Stuffed pizza from Giordano’s

By the mid-1970s, two Chicago chains, Nancy’s Pizza, founded by Rocco Palese, and Giordano’s Pizzeria, operated by brothers Efren and Joseph Boglio, began experimenting with deep-dish pizza and created the stuffed pizza. Palese based his creation on his mother’s recipe for scarciedda, an Italian Easter pie from his hometown of Potenza. Chicago Magazine articles featuring Nancy’s Pizza and Giordano’s stuffed pizza popularized the dish.

Stuffed pizzas are often even deeper than deep-dish pizzas, but otherwise, it can be hard to see the difference until it is cut into. A stuffed pizza generally has much deeper topping density than any other type of pizza. As with deep-dish pizza, a deep layer of dough forms a bowl in a high-sided pan and the toppings and cheese are added. Then, an additional layer of dough goes on top and is pressed to the sides of the crust.

At this stage, the thin dough top has a rounded, domed appearance. Pizza makers often poke a small hole in the top of the “lid” to allow air and steam to escape while cooking, so that the pizza does not explode. Usually, but not always, tomato sauce is ladled over the top crust.

Thin-crust pizza

Chicago-style party-cut thin-crust pizza

There is also a style of thin-crust pizza found in Chicago and throughout the rest of the Midwest. The crust is thin and firm enough to have a noticeable crunch, unlike a New York-style pizza. This pizza is cut into squares, also known as “tavern style” or “party cut”, as opposed to being cut into wedges. Among locals, thin-crust actually outsells the more widely known deep-dish style.

Toppings
In most of the United States, the most popular pizza topping is pepperoni, but in Chicago the most popular topping is sausage.

Today’s Menu: Kitchen Closed – It’s Pizza Tonight from Domino’s

 

 

To start my morning off I prepared a Poached Egg and served it on a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. What a day outside today, 80 degrees and sunny! We were all wondering if Spring would ever get here, and I think it has finally. After Breakfast me and Mom headed out to go see Dad for a while. He was doing pretty good today! Back home did a few things around the house and outside. Then at 2:00 I had to take Mom to an eye appointment. It took a while, she has to schedule a Cataract Removal. The Family Doc called and said all my test results came back great! Diabetes 2 numbers looked good along with the Cholesterol and the rest. Back home too much running around today so the Kitchen is Closed! Tonight its Domino’s Pizza!

 

We got out favorite, Domino’s Hand Tossed Pizza Large with Cheese, Sauce, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Black Olives, Green Olives. First Pizza in a while, and it was over due! As always the Pizza arrived on time, hot and delicious! I had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage Pizza

Today’s Menu: Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Turkey Pepperoni and Turkey Sausage Pizza

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin, and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I then served the Poached Egg on top of the English Muffin. 61 degrees and sunny today! But the rain is moving back in overnight and for the next 2 days. Certain parts of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are flooded from the Ohio River. I live North of Cincinnati and we’ve had a lot of rain but not a whole lot of flooding. So after Breakfast I went Menard’s and Home Depot to price some outdoor yard items, getting ready for Spring! For Dinner tonight; Ancient Grain Mini Naan Bread Pizza – Turkey Pepperoni and Lean Turkey Sausage.

 

I had picked up a package of Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread at Meijer and the package in the freezer along with the Jennie – O Sausage Roll. I laid them in the fridge overnight to thaw. For my toppings for the Pizza I’m using Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausages, Black Olives, Green Olives, Oscar Mayer Hickory Smoked Bacon Bits, Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and Ragu Traditional Pizza Sauce.

 

 

 

I first Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Next I grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam No Stick Cooking Spray, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I opened up a roll of the Jennie – O Lean Turkey Sausage. I cut off a slice of it and crumbled up. Added it to the heated skillet and fried Sausage Crumbles. When they were browned and heated through removed them from the skillet into a small bowl until ready to use.

 

 

 


The oven was heated up and I got the Naan Bread ready. I used a small baking sheet, lined it with foil, and sprayed it Pam Cooking Spray. I lined the 4 Naan Breads up on the baking sheet. I then brushed a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive oil on the top of them. I then baked then for about 2 minutes. Pulled the sheet out of the oven and let the Naan Bread cool for 5 minutes.

 

 

 

When the Bread cooled I added the toppings on top. I started with the Ragu Pizza Sauce. Next slices of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni. Then the Jennie – O Turkey Sausage Crumbles, next the Black and Green Sliced Olives, Oscar Mayer Bacon Bits, and finally the Sargento Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. Slid the baking sheet back into the oven to bake.

 

 

 

 

I baked the Naan Bread Pizzas for about 8 minutes, until the ingredients had heated through and Cheese melted. Pulled the baking sheet from the oven and let the Pizzas cool for 3 minutes. With the first bite I knew the Naan Bread was a perfect Pizza Crust! The Crust had excellent taste and baked up perfect. Then with all my toppings had some great Pizzas. Plus a lot fewer calories and carbs than normal Pizza Pies. I’ll have to get a couple of packs of the Stonefire Mini Naan Ancient Grain Bread and keep them in the freezer. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

Ancient Grain Mini Naan

Made with ancient grains, quinoa, spelt, buckwheat, kamut and a touch of honey! These sweeter, smaller naan are sized just right to fit in your toaster. Perfect for breakfast and snack time. 4 per pack.
