    My version of Chi Style Deep Dish

    Friday Night's Pizza

    No Dead Fish (Anchovies)

    Man I love pizza. I tried an anchovy once, bout barfed. Over-salted and Over-ROTTEN.


      OMG! I love anchovies. Caesar Salad is just not the same without them.


        Looks awesome. Any meat in it? Anchovies - I tolerate them, because my wife loves them. higher quality ones than I can normally get are much better - like the white anchovies severed as tapas in Spanish restaurants.


          There is sausage and cremini mushrooms in the pizza.

          The anchovies are in reference to a pizza feud between the Mayor of Chicago and Jon Stewert (TV host). Evidently he was being a pizza snob so our mayor sent him a, "Deep Dish wit Dead Fish".

            Too funny. Shows you how much Jon Stewart I watch.

          Excellent job Troymeister! You nailed it perfectly. We do Chicago style at the restaurant by special request, and they are a nice change from the avalanche of traditional pizza orders we do. Pizzas are the only place where I never use anchovies, but I sure do use 'em a lot in other things. A tip: rinse the anchovies in warm water. That really ups the complexity, and minimizes their saltiness. I do this when preparing caesar and green goddess salad dressings.

            I've always soaked them in milk for 10-15 minutes and that mellows the little suckers out too.
