History of Chicago Style Pizza
Chicago style deep dish with it's thick layer of crust, loaded with sauce, toppings and a thick layer of cheese was said to have been invented in Chicago, in 1943, by the founder of pizzeria Uno's head chef Rudy Malnati.
A particularly muddled detail involves one of Chicago’s most famous pizza families, the Malnatis. Adolpho “Rudy” Malnati, Sr – a one-time employee at Pizzeria Uno – claimed that it was his spark of genius that created the recipe. He and his brother Riccardo, according to the Malnati family, would hand out slices of Pizzeria Uno’s deep-dish on Chicago street corners in the hopes that passersby would give it a taste.
However a year before in 1942, the original Gino's Pizza located on Rush Street opened its doors. And the argument of who invented the Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza is said to be raging even today. Many Chicago Style pizzerias have opened with the same idea High Quality Deep Dish pizza with that legendary taste and style. I don't know who invented it but I am sure glad they did!
