Chicago style pizza isn't really pizza, it is a casserole with dough, so a slow cooker should work just fine.

The meaning of the word “pizza” has expanded to mean a great many things. Deep dish pizza is one of them. And yes, it IS pizza. These days, throw anything on top of a flatbread, bake at high temp, and voila! It’s a pizza. A lot of what is called pizza these days would, by your way of defining it, be a salad on some bread.

I think I will stick with the oven, or the grill, if I don't want the kitchen hot!

I can see the bottom getting a slight crust on it, but not the top.

Nothing can get people worked up any better that a regional pizza discussion.

I have eaten the original style of pizza in Napoli. 100-percent authentic! It was amazing! But, I live in Texas, so I eat the same thing that everyone calls pizza in Texas... or New York, or Las Vegas. And, I like it.

I also like that casserole that people refer to as "Chicago Pizza." But, IMO, that thing ain't pizza. It is very good, and very filling, but it ain't pizza.

I callz them as I seez them.

My fave pizza of choice (that I can get here) is thin crust, with a raised border of breaded and slightly charred air pockets, very little red sauce and just a few toppings...mushrooms, green bells, onions. Unfortunately, no one offers these here in town.

I'm not crazy about all the thick bread...I get full before I have a chance to enjoy the toppings.

One of the best pizzas I've ever had, had no red sauce...just olive oil, thin crust, and veggie toppings.
Artichoke hearts...yum....

That is called a "white pizza." It is the only kind my youngest son will eat. The Dominoes located in our neighborhood used to refuse to make them.

We have a place here called Santarpio's. They have been there before I was even born. It is a bar room that serves a limited type of foods. Pizza is one of then. In the summer the line goes around the block with people waiting to order their pizza. It has been rated #1 in New England for pizza several times. The only problem is that it is a "bar room." It smells of stale beer and odors of the food cooked months ago. If you can get past the odors, it is a great place to go for a quick meal. The Jukebox still plays music from the 50's. The ambience is there in spite of all the drawbacks. The best time to go there is in the winter when they have painted the place and cleaned it up. Sawdust anyone?

A white pizza has either a ricotta cheese mixture or Alfredo sauce plus toppings. Cheryl had flatbread
