Diving into Deep Dish Pizza
By Mike Bolton
Another food trend here in Toronto, is the recent popularity of Chicago & Detroit style deep dish pizza. There has been one main pizzeria that has lead the way, and quite a few other restaurants that have now hopped on board for the ride.
Maybe it’s the long winters here that call for a pizza that’s even more hearty, rich and filling than the average slice, but deep dish has definitely made a name for itself in this city and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon.
What are the differences between Chicago style Deep-Dish and Detroit style? Chicago style is filled with tomato sauce, and built almost like a pie. Detroit style is a based around it’s thick, crispy crust but is much less sauce based. Regardless of their differences, they have both gained quite a bit of popularity with Toronto restaurant goers.
