Whenever we're in Chicago, our trip isn't complete until we indulge in a traditional Chicago-style pizza. Since we can't get enough of it, we came up with this Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza! 

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound hot Italian sausage, casings removed (see Note)
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 pound store-bought pizza dough
  • 3/4 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a 12-inch deep-dish pizza pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, pepper, and onion 6 to 8 minutes, or until no pink remains in sausage and vegetables are tender, stirring constantly; drain and set aside.
  3. Using your fingertips or heel of your hand, spread dough so it covers bottom of pan and comes three-quarters of the way up sides. Spread spaghetti sauce over dough; top with sausage mixture, then cheese.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is crisp and brown. Cut and serve.

Just a Suggestion!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love a good sausage with fennel on my pizza! And lots of sauce! And cheese! So I need a deep dish crust to hold all my toppings!

In response to Vodika.... That is the one thing I always make from scratch. Pizza dough. The pizza sauce also is made from scratch. I do can a lot in the fall when tomatoes are abundant. Can't be beat. Family and friends love it. This is regular crust pizza not the great authentic Chicago style.

Can you post a sauce recipe? I have tried to make but does not have the good Italian taste. Thanks

Jeesh...Be nice, people. If you don't think this looks good, don't make it.

This is in no way deep dish. Number 1 - true deep dish, cheese is on the bottom, then toppings, sauce, and parmesan/romano cheese, etc. Obviouslu doesn't know what real deep dish truly is!!!

Good God does anyone out their make home made pizza dough ??? come on people

I loved it and make it all the time. Home made pizza is never the same as pizza parlor. That is the magic of famuly meals! If this is too good for you-stop reading Mr. Food. Mr. Food is narvelous and those of us who love to try new,quick or different recipes Thank you Mr. Food!!

Hmmm the previous comment is coming from someone that does not even care to check spelling. It is deep not dip, you dip! Not everyone will post a recipe that is exactly to your specifications there pal. Maybe Chicago Deep Dish should be 4 deep in a pan, but so what. If you have so many years experience, where is your cooking show or site?

Guess micjoe never makes a mistake. Must be nice

I think this is not a real method to make Chicago Dip Dish Pizza. I have 20 years of Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria owner exp. I know A to Z about pizza and recipes.

this looks like it is a real good pizza to cook for the famliy for dinner tonight
