First "scratch" pizza. Chicago sort of. (Pic Heavy)

Mam oh man, that is one fine looking pizza right there. It sure makes them a LOT better when all the goodies...or at least most of them, are homemade. Excellent job!1

Robert
Thanks, Robert.
That's half the fun of it. Doing it yourself from "scratch" I think.

Yet he came up with it after moving to Chicago.....
Lol, yes, my wife and sisters always figured it was a born and raised Chicago person.

We have one of the pizza places down the road about a mile, Giordano's. Yours looks as good or better than theirs.

I really doubt that LOL!
The first time I had it was in a little place in Champaign about a block from U of I where a girl I was dating was going to school.
(This was MANY years ago!)
I had never heard of it and was completely blown away.

Yours looks damn good.

Actually, Giordano's is famous for "stuffed pizza", which is different than deep dish. Stuffed is dough, cheese and meats/veggies, then another layer of dough on top. Really good.

Looking forward to seeing your thread on stuffed pizza.

Thanks, Rich!
We're not frequent pizza people usually. It's always just been kind of a convenience thing now and then, but this is fun :emoji_laughing:

Looks Awesome, Dan!!
We never made our own Pizza Crust, even when I was healthy.
Mine are "Good Enough", but nothing even close to Yours!!
Nice Job!
Like.

But , good looking left overs for later...

I like it cold the next day also. Or reheated , or both . Did I say I like pizza

David
Yep. This was two dinners and a couple of brunches for the Mrs.
With just the two of us that's how most of my cooks work out.
When my daughter was a kid she liked it cold next day. If I ordered a pizza
there had better be at least one slice left or she pouted.
