The Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza seems to be an all-time classic when you even mention the words “pizza pie”. The thick crust topped off with the cheese and crushed tomato layers can stop any hungry soul in their tracks. If you want to take ride to the windy city without having to pay for airfare, this awesome deep dish delight can do like “The Staple Sisters” and take you there. Enjoy!

Making this pizza is very easy when using your cast iron skillet. Once you get the hang of forming the dough on the edges of the skillet, your pizza making skills will be endless. You can swap out the beef in the recipe for any meat of your choice or go meatless for a cheesy vegetarian alternative.
