Commonly Asked Questions

What is the difference between deep-dish pizza and regular pizza?

Also known as “Chicago-style” pizza, the deep dish pizza is commonly baked in a 2-3inch deep pan. This way, the deep dish pizza has way more fillings instead of crust, making it more like a pie than a regular pizza.

Should you eat a deep-dish pizza with a knife and fork?

Obviously, it’s a matter of preference and the decision is up to you. However, you might be more inclined to use utensils when it comes to eating deep dish pizza, as you would if you were eating a pie. This way, you can avoid spilling or getting your mouth too messy when you eat it.
