How To Make Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza

To make this 'Chicago style deep dish pizza' recipe you'll need the following ingredients:


  • ⅓ cup diced pepperoni
  • ⅓ cup diced pepperoni
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • ⅛ cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, divided
  • 9 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ pound spicy Italian sausage – browned, drained, and crumbled


To make the dough: In a small bowl, dissolve sugar in 1 cup warm water; In a separate small bowl, mix yeast, 1/2 cup flour, and 1/2 cup warm water. Mix together and let rest in the bowl for about 20 minutes, until frothy.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the remaining 2 1/2 cups flour with cornmeal and salt; Remove half of this mixture from the bowl and stir 1 cup sugar water into the bowl. 

When well mixed, put the second half of the flour/cornmeal mixture back into the bowl and mix everything together; then stir in the yeast mixture. 

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 12 minutes. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in volume.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). To make the filling: In a large bowl, combine the sausage, mozzarella, Parmesan, pepperoni, onion, bell pepper, oregano, and garlic. Mix well.

Press half the dough into the bottom and along the sides of a lightly greased deep dish. Bake crust for 4 minutes in the preheated oven, then add the filling mixture to bottom crust and cover with top crust; seal edges together with fingers, trimming off excess. 

Cut top crust open to allow steam to escape during baking; top with tomato sauce.

Bake for 45 minutes on the bottom rack at 230 degrees C (450 degrees F), or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
