So many of you long term followers know that I am a Chicago girl. Born and raised in the south suburbs of the big city! My husband and I moved to Ohio 6 1/2 years ago and there is a short list of things we miss about the big city.

1. Our family. While we are only 4 1/2 hours away from my parents, it’s not the same as being able to stop by and have dinner on the weekends. And with my brothers popping out babies since we left, (well, their wives popped out babies to be exact), I miss all my nieces and nephews too!

2. Our friends. We are blessed to have THE BEST FRIENDS anyone could ask for! You just can’t replace your friends, or your neighbors. And we were very lucky to live next to some of the greatest families!

3. Okay, now that family and friends our out of the way, let’s talk food. After all this is a food blog, right? Here in Ohio they don’t know how to make pizza. Is that true where you live? I guess if you’re not from Chicago you don’t know what you’re missing. And all you NY’ers don’t even start on me about how YOUR pizza is better. Haha!!! We tried it last spring and it doesn’t even compare. {yes, totally digging on you, but it’s my blog, and I’m allowed}

So, pizza. Everytime we go back to visit our family and friends we always try to make sure that take out pizza is involved at least once during our visit. We used to go as far as ordering half baked deep dish pizzas and bring them home in a cooler to freeze for later. Oh, how I love a Deep Dish Sausage Pizza!

Then I went shopping at Findlay Market here in Cincinnati. And I saw it. Hot Chicago Italian Sausage. YES!!! I picked up several pounds and my mind was spinning. I knew I had to make a deep dish pizza. But where to start? After searching the internet, I decided I needed to combine bits and pieces from about 4 recipes (maybe 5) and make my own version. It turned out perfect. The crust was chewy and buttery (very important), and the filling. OMG the filling. And the tomatoes on top. DELISH.

This recipe creates TWO deep dish pizzas. I used my 9inch cake pans (they are about 2 inch deep) to bake this pizza. You can certainly use authentic pizza pans if you have them! ENJOY!!

Family, Friends…I’ve been using you as a crutch all these years to come home for pizza. You will never see me again. haha, kidding. But we can stop ordering pizza and instead focus on Portillo’s! Now to recreate the perfect Italian beef sandwich!

Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

Yield: 2- 9inch pizzas

Make your own Chicago style Deep Dish Pizzas at home!

Ingredients

    For the Dough:
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup bread flour
  • 1 pkg (0.25oz) active yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • For the Filling:
  • 1 lb hot Italian Sausage, no casings
  • 1 can (28oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (14.5oz) diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 4 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. For the dough, in a large mixing bowl, combine, flours, yeast, salt and sugar. Slowly add water and olive oil. Mix with a paddle attachment for 2 minutes. Remove and use dough hook to knead dough for 2-3 minutes. Remove and put in a greased bowl. Cover with saran wrap and allow to rise 2 hours in a warm place (I put it on top of my dryer). Divide dough into two balls. Using hands, knead 1 Tbsp of softened butter into each dough ball. Put into a 9inch cake pan (or deep dish pizza pan) and allow to rise and additional 1-2 hours in a warm place.
  2. Brown italian sausage in a large skillet, breaking up into small chunks. Make sure your sausage is removed from the casings. If you can't find the HOT Italian sausage, add a pinch or two of red pepper flakes. Drain sausage completely.
  3. In a large pot, combine tomatoes, salt, pepper, oregano, basil and garlic salt. Simmer while dough rises on low heat (about 1-2 hours).
  4. When ready to assemble pizzas, press dough lightly with fingertips to bottom and sides of pan. Lay 2 cups of shredded cheese in bottom of pizza. Top with browned sausage and about 2 1/2 cups of sauce.
  5. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 25 minutes. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Slice and eat. ENJOY!

This looks ridiculously similar to the deep dish pizzas I love!! Nice work. And you are absolutely right, half the battle is making sure that the crust is perfectly buttery and not too dry. I can’t wait to try this recipe!

Julie @ Table for Two February 6, 2013 at 8:08 pm

When I went to Chicago a few years ago to visit my friend who was going to school there, she took us to this really popular deep dish pizza place. I want to say it was Grimaldi’s but I could have the name COMPLETELY wrong. Anyway, I never had deep dish before and I fell in love. SO SO good. I love that you just showed us how to make it because I never attempted it before but I might just have to so I can bring Chi-Town here!

Kristin, you can certainly use all purpose flour for the bread flour. I find that adding in the bread flour helps create a nice chewy crust that rises a little bit more. But, if in a pinch, all purpose will be close!

I’m from ‘New Yawk’ and love me some pizza… My son and his family now live in Chicago area and my daughter in law loves her some deep-dish… (I hesitate to call it pizza :) ) her favorite is pepperoni with Spinach and I have to say it is delicious. I thought maybe I’d make some deep dish for her while they are here for Thanksgiving…can’t eat Turkey every night. Some recipes call for a regular NY-type pizza dough and I knew that wasn’t right…it’s not the same. Glad to see yours’ is authentic. It’s like from my big fat greek wedding… NY Pizza is like an apple and Chicago pizza is like an orange – they are different, but they are all fruit…(in this case pizza!).

I’m not a Chicagoan by birth but that city is my city – I’ve lived there twice in my life. I, too, have lived in Cincy and Donatos and LaRosas have NOTHING on good Chicago deep dish. So thank you for this recipe – I’m a Navy wife who will probably not return to the city anytime soon but now I can make this for my family!
