What is Chicago-Style Pizza? 

Chicago-style pizza, originating in Chicago, is a deep-dish crust similar to a pie crust versus the thin, flat crusts of New York-style pizza. The deep dish pizza crusts are generally made with a higher fat content, giving them a flaky, buttery, and delicious texture. 

Chicago pizza is assembled in the reverse order of traditional pizza: mounds of fresh mozzarella on the bottom, toppings of choice, and finished with a layer of sauce. The Chicago-style sauce is a chunky tomato sauce. The sauce on top helps prevent the crust from becoming soggy. 

Chicago-style pizza is often baked in a deep, round pan, giving the pizza the high edges needed to hold the saucy and cheesy goodness. Chicago-style pizza can be more hearty and indulgent than a traditional slice. When the craving for Chicago pizza hits, and you’re wondering, “Where can I get Chicago pizza near me?” wonder no more. Rosati’s Downtown and Rosati’s The Loop are the answers.

Rosati’s is the Best Deep Dish Pizza 

Our Chicago-style pizza stands out among the rest. Our Chicago famous deep-dish pizza is a buttery crust filled with mounds of mozzarella cheese and topped with Rosati’s Chicago-style sauce. We choose quality ingredients for the best pizza possible. Rosati’s dough is made from a unique blend of flour harvested from high-protein wheat grown exclusively in the Midwest. Our Chicago-style signature sauce is made from a recipe dating back generations.  We use tomatoes grown in the Central Valley of California and mix them with a special blend of herbs and spices, and the rest is a secret. Our team knows that Wisconsin knows cheese, so that’s where we source our fresh mozzarella from.
