    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.

        This isn’t Chicago style pizza, we specialize in thin crust square cut pizzas. This is just something to grab the attention of tourists and make us “different”.
        Go to any great pizza place in Chicago that isn’t Beggars or Giadarnos and you’d realize our true Chicago style pizzas outbeats New York’s thin slices any day of the week.

              That's not deep dish. That's just thick crust and a lot of cheese. You want a proper deep dish, you need, like, two solid inches of cheese. Not even joking.

                I like the idea of Andrew wearing a full black outfit and meeting a shady dealer behind a pizza place.

                Andrew: You got the goods?
                Dealer: Yeah man, you got the stuff?
                Andrew: Yeah *hands over box of kosher salt*
                Dealer: Now that's what I'm talking about. *gives Andrew the 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.
