So this is seriously the 8th pizza I’ve baked in the last 3 weeks. To say the least, my family is getting really tired of eating pizza. I could never think of such a thing! Pizza is like air to me. I need it to live…..OK, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Pizza everyday and I would be one, happy camper.
With 7 pizzas behind me, I’m not giving up in achieving that ‘perfect’ deep dish – Chicago-style! My goal is to get something close to the look and taste of Lou Malnati’s style.
You know what that’s like? It’s a firm, crunch, sturdy of a crush….not bready, but sturdy is the right word. The crust is not too buttery, nor too bland or sweet. It’s a nice combination of a little buttery taste, a little sweet.
The cheese is outstanding and nutty. The sauce is not sweet or too salty. I think I’m getting closer to the deep dish pizza I have in my mind…..crossing fingers!
