Chicago style deep dish pizza with homemade Italian sausage recipe (with photos) 

The deep pan or deep dish pizza is very popular in Chicago. The pizza dough is light and flaky and covers not only the bottom of the pan but the sides as well. Unlike other pizzas, the tomato sauce in this recipe goes on the top of the pizza and not on the bottom (it is the last layer of the pizza, not the first one); furthermore, the pizza is baked for 35 to 40 minutes instead of the 5 to 10 minutes cooking time for regular pizzas. This Chicago style deep dish pizza recipe uses homemade Italian sausage and uncooked tomato sauce (recipes included).
