About the Holiday

Also known as Chicago-style pizza today we celebrate National Deep Dish Pizza Day. Deep dish pizza was created in Chicago in 1943 by Pizzeria Uno’s founder Ike Sewell. Deep dish pizza has a buttery cornmeal crust than can be as tall as 3 inches on the sides. That way the crust acts like a bowl to hold in all the yummy ingredients. The pizza is made upside down so the cheese goes in first, then toppings, then sauce. Popular Chicago deep dish restaurants include Pizzeria Uno (and Due) Gino's East (pictured above), and Lou Malnati's.
