Binging with Babish: Chicago-Style Pizza from The Daily Show

Tickets on sale now for my book tour!
Pre-order my book before its release on October 22nd for access to exclusive content!
This week we're heralding the arrival of National Pizza Month (aka every month ever?) with a true Binging with Babish conceptual reach - using Jon Stewart's famous rant against Chi-Town's deep-dish speciality as an excuse to make some ourselves. With cups of sauce and pounds of cheese held at bay by a towering levee of buttery, flaky crust, how could you not like Chicago-style deep-dish pizza? Assuming you've never tried New York-style pizza, of course.

    Is no one going to explain why the cheese goes under the sauce? Okay, I guess I will. When you leave it in the oven for 40 minutes, the cheese would all burn if it went on top.

    Okay, as a Chicagoan, I need to point out that deep dish is *NOT* Chicago-style pizza. Chicago-style pizza is a completely different type of pizza. Deep dish simply happens to be the most popular type we have. Chicago-style is a traditionally flat pizza with a hard buttery crust, very thick cheese, and large balls of sausage. That is the most common type of pizza you'd find in the city. Homerun Inn is a prominent example of this type of pizza, though I personally prefer Beggars.

    I have lived “near” Chicago, so I have had all the Chicago Style Deep Dish. And it’s amazing. When I (eventually) take a trip to New York, where do I want to go for pizza? Have at it, NLplayer.

    I don't really understand your problem with sauce on top. New Yorkers do it too with the Brooklyn square and it is also delicious. It's a Sicilian thing. Also, I don't get the big deal about "New York" style. In Chicago at least they are cooking you a fresh pie. New York style usually means you're getting a slice that's been sitting there god knows how long and reheated with OK crust and average "meh" cheese. The better style of pizza in New York is Napoli style, not New York, but Napoli style is way overpriced and you might as well just make it at home.

    I may be out of line here, but I really don't see what's so special about New York Style pizza. It's basically a giant slice of Little Caesar's. It's a huge triangle of cheese and thin but soft dough with a bunch of greasy ass cheese that is somehow so greasy that it makes literally everything else greasy and gross.

    New Yorkers get so offended by anyone eating anything besides a New York style slice but sometimes you want a little variety in your pizza, sometimes you don't want to have to deal with roughly half a gallon of grease coming off of your pizza and onto everything.

    Well here's the funny story about "uncooked marinara sauce", cultural differnces and etc. I am Russian and somwhere around 2005 "such rhing as pizza" got to our small town. And 10 yo me, crawing for pizza annoyed my mom quite a lot. She saw it, tasted it, and outraged because she realized she can cook it herself, and even better than they do in the restatunt. She made it in thick layer on dough, because that was easier for her. And added "lecho", which is used as sauce mostly, and very popular on caucasus. Well this lecho does not have precise reciepe, that's why my mom always makes marinara sauce without knowing it. I was eating chicago wtyle pizza at home withoyr knowing it for more than 6 years.
