      Not from Chicago, but I do love deep dish pizza. That being said, deep dish is closer to lasagna than pizza.

        Hey Andrew! Thanks for the video. I read that you can only cook cast iron in the oven up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. What temp do you use for cast iron? Thanks!

          Hey, homemade pizza obsessed student without an oven here! It would be so amazing if you could do a video on how to make an acceptable stovetop pizza, or just baking without an oven in general! I think a lot of people share the same struggle. Thank you so much <3

                                          @whats the point but I was expecting it to be cooked in a pan on the stove. A no-oven recipe.
                                          My student residence doesn't have an oven and it would be cool to make pizza without one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

                                        Am I the only one who followed the ingredients/instructions for the dough for it to be too runny and look nothing like the video. Ended up having to put another 8oz of flour in - fingers crossed haha

                                              These looked underbaked to me, are you sure that first one was really done? If you are going to use a glass cooking vessel, I would recommend cooking covered to get everything up to temperature and uncovered for desired brownness.

                                                Sorry, but the comparison of that lousy Blue Apron zucchini pizza to Babish's homemade buttery crust, piping hot cheese, pepperonni pizza was a huge advertisement of why NOT to bother getting Blue Apron!

                                                    So slight problem with your tomato sauce... Blender!! Doing that emulsifies the tomatoes which is what YOU DON'T WANT when it comes to sauce. Minor suggestion from years (32 to be exact) of experience at being Italian. Squeeze all the juice out of the San Marzano can... like every drop until your just left with the weird cartilage tissue of the tomatoes. Then take that gunky non-juice pulp then use a hand blender, food processor or what have you that can be emulsified this will keep all that sauce pure and breakdown the chunky bits into sauce (unless you like it chunky of course :) . ALL of this btw can be skipped if you just get a food mill and turn it into a sauce instantly. The grandma looked mazing btw.

My "dough" was a bit wet so i added more flour till it looked the consistency of yours. Hope that was right
