This week we're heralding the arrival of National Pizza Month (aka every month ever?) with a true Binging with Babish conceptual reach - using Jon Stewart's famous rant against Chi-Town's deep-dish speciality as an excuse to make some ourselves. With cups of sauce and pounds of cheese held at bay by a towering levee of buttery, flaky crust, how could you not like Chicago-style deep-dish pizza? Assuming you've never tried New York-style pizza, of course.

Basics With Babish Website:


  • Someone get Trevor Noah to go on a rant about low-carb protein bowls, I'm trying to lose some weight over here.

  • As a Chicagoan, i will say that looks pretty legit. The thick crust is more of a Lou Malnatis approach, which is good, but I personally prefer the Giordanos approach which is a slightly thinner crust with more cheese and wayyy more sauce that is thicker and holds it's form...but to each their own

  • I like your red sea pun

  • I will punch that news guy.

  • New York: New York style! Chicago: deep dish! Boston *confused*: lobster role!

  • I tot I wud eatin DeEp DiSh PiZzA aT lIl cEaSeRs

  • As someone who is from Chicago, deep dish isn't real Chicago pizza.

  • 8:12 Me a Chicagoan: Sounds about right.

  • first you make cottage cheese lasagna next you make deep dish pizza the Italians have their eye on you, my friend.

  • under cover of plastic wrap is my favorite strokes song

  • Holy, that looks disguisting. Im like a normal person, I sometimes go into the kitchen just to eat a couple of slices of cheese, but damn.

  • Am Italian but open minded lol...tried Chicago style but I really just don't like it especially when it starts getting soggy 🤢

  • Shit dish pizza or slop bucket pizza. A god awful gut bomb of loose poop.

  • What's with the monotonous delivery?

  • I miss Jon

  • Using that wooden spatch on your tomato sauce to avoid the bitterness and metallic taste. That’s smart. I like it. I like you.

  • Any chance you can make the deboned duck from the movie 'Julie & Julia' or some of the desserts like Queen of Sheba Chocolate almond cake?

  • Dear babish, My name is jessica Moreno and I have never asked anything from you cause I enjoy your content the way it is. But I have one request! And for you to make the dinner from the office you know what dinner the one where one poor dundie award gets chucked at a plasma screen. Sincerely, A loving fan! Jessica :)

  • Yum yum yummy!!

  • I was trying to go to bed early to go to the gym in morning. Yet here I am at 3:42am watching someone make deep dish pizza.

  • This bread flat. YEAST

  • Can you do a few meals that only require a handful of ingredients? Maybe like a 1 pot slop? I can't keep spending $200 a day on ingredients/spices and using 4 days to make breakfast.

  • Do some secret life of bees recipes

  • As a proud Appalachian, I can say impartially that almost all pizza is great, regardless of whether it's Chicago-style or New York-style. Both are pizza, and both are great in their own way. I say "almost all" pizza is great because putting pineapple on pizza is heresy, as is all that "American-style" BS that foreigners think is what we eat. Corn does not go on pizza, and that's a fact.
