Chicago-style deep-dish

Hi --

I just posted a wonderful Chicago-style stuffed-crust pizza over on Flour Girl.

I know we talk a lot here about light, crispy thin-crust pizzas here, but there's something to be said for a chewy, buttery, dense Chicago-style pie now and then.

I stuffed last night's pizza with spinach and cheese.

What do you all like best in your deep-dish pie?

Happy baking!

Itallian Sausage, peperoni, onion, mushroom, green pepper.


The Frugal Gourmet's take on the Uno crust is pretty close to ideal.

I like grilled peppers, mushrooms and lotsa cheese!  (and sometimes anchovies)
