The Fight for Pizza Supremacy: Chicago Deep Dish Vs. New York Style

Freshly Baked PizzaMany people have tried to compare two of the most popular pizza flavors on the planet, which are the Chicago deep dish and the New York style. Both have distinct tastes and styles that distinguish them from the rest. Experts cite the following differences that make both pizzas unique and must-eats whenever you order this dish.

The Crust

When you order from a 24 hours pizza place, what comes to your mind when you want to satiate your craving? Some people would say the crust; the New York style is famous for its thin, crispy crust topped with pepperoni and a thin layer of tomato sauce with excellent quality cheese. On the other hand, for those who want the feeling of fullness, the Chicago deep dish’s thick crust smothered with tomato sauce, cheese and assorted toppings is one for the books.

Toppings, Cheese and Sauce

The deep dish takes a different approach compared to the New York style. The cook directly layers the mozzarella cheese onto the dough just under the sauce and toppings, giving it a scrumptious look. The word toppings takes on a different meaning with the deep dish, instead of being on “top” the ingredients are under the sauce. Some ingredients include spinach, green pepper, mushrooms and sausage. On the other hand, New York style pizzas have simple toppings, some of the most popular ones include Italian sausages and pepperoni. New York style pizzas have a thin layer of sauce evenly spread; on the other hand, its deep dish counterpart requires chunky tomato sauce on top of its “toppings” to give it its uniqueness. The cook also sprinkles other spices and parmesan cheese on top of the sauce to give a distinct flavor. These are just some of the differences of the New York style pizza and the deep dish. Simplicity is the name of the game for the former, while the latter explodes with flavor when you take a slice and bite. Whichever way you like it, both are unique and provide pizza lovers with what they want.
