Chicago style Deep Dish pizza, not sure why I love it but I do. I was born and raised in Florida, have lived here all my life. With the amount of transplanted New Yorkers here, it’s no surprised that NY style seems to be the official pizza of the state. The closest Pizza Uno restaurant is over 100 miles away and the only restaurant in Palm Beach County that even makes deep dish is Giovanni’s in Boca. Even Giovanni’s (which is sooooo good) isn’t that close to me, so needless to say I was pretty excited when I found Pizza Uno in the freezer section.
Not much to do to cook it. Remove from package, preheat the oven to 350° and cook. While it says cook for 35-40 minutes, keep a close eye on it. I took it out a little earlier because the cheese was starting to burn on the top.
I didn’t follow the optional “restaurant quality” directions because I don’t have a cake pan. I could see how it would improve the crust.
While you’re waiting for the pizza to cool off, there’s enough time to make a quick salad. Which is pretty much the perfect thing to serve with the pizza.
Now onto the important part, how did this taste? Delicious. So close to the taste of having it at a Pizza Uno restaurant that I wonder if they are just re-heating these freezer pizzas. The sausage (very plentiful) was good with a slight spice to it. The cheese… so much cheese. Not too much sauce but that’s a good thing, it didn’t make the crust soggy. The crust had that trademark biscuit-like taste to it. Loved it.
My only complaint was that the crust was a little dry but I think that had more to do with not following the optional “restaurant quality” directions.
Pizza Uno may be pricier than most freezer pizzas at nearly $7.50 but it’s worth the extra couple of bucks. Especially when you consider it would the same pizza would cost at least $12 or more in the restaurant. The only downside is it’s a bit smaller than you think it would be once it’s out of the box. If you’re serving more than 2, i’d definitely get a 2nd pizza.
Chicago Style Deep Dish without having to go nearly 40 miles to the nearest restaurant that will make it? Yes! I had some doubts whether deep dish freezer pizza would actually taste good but those doubts are loooong gone.
This is now a freezer staple that will proudly sit next to my White Castle burgers in the freezer. If there’s ever a sale at the store… said freezer will be FULLY stocked.
