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.

  • “It’s better than California pizza.” Let’s be real here. A pineapple and banana pudding pizza is better than a California pizza.

  • transgenderism in one sentence: "Voila! The same thing, but with sausage."

  • banish when are you going to make cold leftover breakfast pizza with salt and ranch?

  • Can you do a regular pizza recipe also?

  • Right now, I wouldn't recommend coming to São Paulo, Brazil, but when all this crazy covid situation gets controlled, you might reconsider you favorite pizza style... and sorry for those who think that NY style is the best... because it's not

  • Why are Americans always fighting over *pizza?*

  • so it a lasagna pizza

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="51">0:51</a> Babish: I had to retrieve this pizza in full disguise and under cover of darkness. Babish: The Spy

  • I love Jon Stewart, but he just can't make me laugh. I see his jokes coming a mile away and it makes me cringe.

  • I hope people comparing these sorts of pizzas are all tongue-in-cheek about it, because I just don't understand how people can legitimately get elitist and combative over fucking pizza.

  • *lives in indiana* *sees this video* *quietly begins to figure out if i have enough money to drive up to chicago to get a pizza* *realize i don't and that there's a pandemic going on and i'm also at work and it' 2am* *cry for 10 minutes*

  • I made this it’s super delicious

  • I genuinely hope that people don't make this big a deal of chicago vs new york style pizza. Sounds like the absolute dumbest hill to die on.

  • *unbiased laugh from the south*

  • Why tf would anybody want that much cheese on a pizza? Gross

  • i legit looked up california pizza

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="87">1:27</a> *nice little snacc for yeest*

  • At 2.38 any else think bout that William Dafoe meme

  • Only reason why your version is good is becouse you cooked the marinara sauce Italian original is best

  • What about Detroit style pizza

  • Of course you wouldn't compare it to New York's. It's not floppy garbage like in your state 🤣

  • Well said Babish, it’s not to be compared to anything else. It’s just good on its own. Literally no Xhicagoan ever compares it to NY style. That’s an argument that came out of thin air.

  • Babish: my friends are also very hungry Also babish “eats the whole pizza”

  • The first time i saw the pizza, i thought it was a *cake*

  • Hah! That's exactly how I make my Chicago style. Completely unlike Chicago style. But seriously, if you're making pizza, and working toward making better pizza, then we're on the right path. I have finally figured out a real Chicago style at this point that's true to the style and to my, not-so-damn-thick crust, liking. Babs, keep cooking what you love and enjoying with friends, brother!

  • “It’s better than California pizza.” *YOU WATCH YOUR MOUTH*

  • I, a Chicago resident since birth, have never had NY styled pizza. I never will.

  • Never had NY pizza, what's so special about it? Please enlighten me

  • This just made me hungry and miss the daily show when it was funny... thx babaduke

  • “Me Planning To Make This Pizza During Lockdown" My Mom : Tujse Itni Mehnat Na Ho Payegi.

  • "Better than Californian pizza" lmao obviously

  • I'm Italian and you made me scramble foreign brats But it looks very good

  • I agree with Jon. Chicago style is not pizza. I don’t even like ny style, but at least it’s pizza

  • I use Stewart's rant to distinguish California from New York. New York is all about doing things in the "authentic" "one" way--hence leading to Stewart's hilarious meltdown. California, especially LA, is all about seeing what perverse things can be done with the food. Want barbecue on your pizza? Why not? Should we put Korean BBQ in our tacos? Why not? Simple distinction between LA and NY: NY, Why? LA, Why Not?

  • But is it... B O N E L E S S

  • Who else actually put on 3D glasses

  • damn that's thicc

  • Okay, hear me out. Andrew said all pizza has a right to exist. _Chicago style pizza with pineapple._

  • i live in california...................any pizza is better than our wannabe vegan monstrosity of a tomato pie

  • personaly i would put peperoni within the cheese layers

  • I’ve never been out of California and I thought our pizza was good apparently not😂

  • I want pizza from pizza hut their Mexican pizza ugh the best.

  • So, one thing I have not seen asked or mentioned on some recipes is do you cook this on top center or bottom rack in the oven. I ask because I have seen one technique for those without a pizza stone or oven where you cook on the bottom rack and finish with the broiler on the top for the last few minutes. However, as deep dish is a different animal would it be better to cook more evenly on the center rack? Thanks.

  • this not a pizza...Madonna santa. ..stronzzo. ...

  • people in chicago eat midwestern or tavern style pizza. deep dish is for tourists and family visiting from small shit towns.

  • This really reminds me of a quiche

  • You should make new your style cus idk what that is

  • whoever came up with the idea should be brought in a dark alley and shot in the head. same for their living family just to be sure to stop the lineage.

  • never had deep dish before, but if u need knife and fork to eat it, maybe it is not pizza

  • Great. More Pandering to liberal New York...

  • *Pizza*

  • dis is a piece of dick

  • You should do that taco ad from SNL with bill Hader. Thing is insane

  • Thank you for the tutorial babish but i don't wanna know

  • I used to work at a Chicago-style pizza joint, and one thing that you missed, is an EXTREMELY thin layer of dough between the cheese and the sauce

  • Not gonna lie this looks disgusting

  • Chicago stile pizza, another great way to enjoy the pie.! It's all about what are you craving at the moment, that will make it the best pizza.

  • looks DISGUSTANG

  • i'm salivating 🤤🤣🤣🤣

  • Please Americans stop trying to change a fucking pizza

  • Deep dish pizza is to New York like pineapple pizza is to Italy

  • The sauce is not cooked!

  • It’s basically a pizza pie.

  • Why do people fight? Any type of pizza are good except the gross ingredient ones of course! I mean, we all can respect the difference of each culture, the uniqueness of each recipe. I still consider it at pizza and to be honest, Chicago Deep dish pizza is probably your choice of pizza especially if you're super hungry

  • i don't think it's better, but it sure taste good.

  • All americam food - cheeeese and bread.

  • Lol you know it’s good when it’s got so much cheese that he has to take his lactaid mid recording. Or lactose pills or tablets or whatever his are called

  • why everyone talking about new york pizza italian pizza is definetely better

  • California can call it whatever they want but that doesnt mean it is to the rest of the world.

  • Who didn’t find that first clip funny?

  • You you need to taste the Brazilian pizza

  • Duuuuuude I want to know what Babish thinks of "St. Louis style" mainly (obviously) Imos Pizza

  • That’s not pizza That is garbage

  • I got a Pizza Hut add lol

  • Bring forth the holy hand grenade

  • I am *shocked* with the amount of cheese in this pizza ahhh

  • For non Chicagoans: A local chain called Lou Malnati’s makes a DELICIOUS Deep Dish pizza, and they can ship a pizza ANYWHERE in the USA

  • why not use garlic infused oil, why not put garlic smash in the dough, where's the oregeno? mamma mia

  • Chicago: Deep dish pizza Cathy Mitchell: dUmP dIsH PiZzA
