Chicago Style…

 Chicago-Style Pizza. There’s a lot of disagreement about what this actually is. It’s thicker than New York pizza, that’s for sure, but after that all bets are pretty much off. Most folks will argue that Chicago Pizza’s claim to fame is simply a thick wheat crust. However to me Chicago’s great contribution to pizza crust is not merely thickness (for the bests crust are not all that thick) but corn meal and in many cases, potato starch. To me these will always be the defining characteristics of a true “Chicago” pizza. The sauce can either be on the top or the bottom.”
