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.

    • Ahhh Ahhhew

    • The dislikes are from Italians 😂😂

    • Please with every fiber of my being make new mexico green chili. 😊😊😊

    • Trevor Noah is a liar

    • Covid ain't helping

  • *italians have left the chat*

  • '1/3 of a cup + 2 tbl spoons of olive oil' really nice way of measuring stuff

  • To all hobby cooks: Do NOT cut you onions like this! it's total bs and your way more likely to cut yourself. this technique is purely for show

  • BwB: The cheese, of course was cheesy. The sauce, of course was saucy. Me: The crust, of course was crusty...

  • the Lactaid move is a must, big brain move

  • I can’t believe he didn’t make his own water

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="237">3:57</a> that’s what he said ...

  • California pizza has the taste and consistency of cardboard

  • plastic wrap intensifies

  • I ate that really good

  • I would eat/make this if it didn’t have chunky sauce. But I guess I could just make it with non chunky sauce.

  • When I want a want a meal Ill eat deep dish. If I want to eat soggy newspaper with cheese on top I'll eat new york style.

  • I wish I was this man's roommate or whoever gets to eat what he cooks

  • Ay ni de los santos no te dije quién es Manuel de los santos pronunciar

  • “I had to get this pizza in disguise” **changes into chef uniform*

  • U eat the whole slice in video 😂😋 too hungry to try

  • Man, I love Trevor Noah but I miss Jon so much.

  • It’s still not pizza though...

  • so no ones gonna talk about how babish says handleable

  • You did right by Chicago

  • "right to exist"

  • The only true pizza is from Italy. New York, California, Chicago, good, but not Italy Good.

  • Me: I love how he makes it seem like eat only eat deep dish pizza Me inside my head: *SHIT WHO TOLD HIM*

  • where's the bullets

  • New Yorkers: Chicago style pizza isn’t pizza and New York style is better!!! Chicagoans: Okay, sure, whatever. (while eating our superior pizza)

  • I’ve never had Chicago deep dish pizza

  • Personally, I would half the amount of sugar and onions he uses

  • He forgot the top crust. Stuffed pizza has a very thin layer of top crust above the cheese. The sauce goes on top of that. Most Chicagoans eat a style that is called "tavern style" its a very thin crust pizza with plenty of toppings which is cut into squares. Thats what we eat more often. Stuffed or deep dish is more of a once in a while thing even though it's what Chicago is known for. Deep dish is just too much if you're having company or if you just want a couple slices.

    • personally i like stuffed pizza more than deep dish because of that extra layer of dough. I think it gives it a different texture profile and makes the pizza a bit more structurally sound

  • He be the Moses

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="500">8:20</a> That statement holds true everywhere except for in missouri

  • Imagine being a piece of wheat You get systematically and purposely planted in a field at a specific time You spend weeks-months growing You finally get harvested You get milled and grinded into flour You go through inspection and you're perfect You get packaged and travel across a country to get put in a store Someone decides to purchase the bag you're in You sit in a house for weeks until you have a use Someone finally decides to cook with you And they turn you into a fucking Chicago deep dish

  • This video makes me hungry

  • Mm..

  • You should use brown sugar in sauce not white.. more depth

  • Traitor

  • Deep dish IS better than NY pizza ;)

  • I Wonder how Florida pizza Is

  • Babish: I like Chicago deep dish Gov Cuomo: so you have chosen death

    • Cuomo letting alot of you guys die lately

  • If you liked New York style pizza more then I may I hated you forever I`m from Chicago

  • this guy is a hipster scam artist.

  • New Yorkers complaining about Chicago style, but what about the Italians crying from what their baby has become

    • Also "Pizza" was a term already use in Italy before the invention of the "napolitan rounded bread with tomato sauce".

    • @Biggie Cheesie I've checked...It's written with one T in both, italian and greek :)

    • @Marco Favaro it's called pitta, look it up, coincidence that sound a lot like pizza? No

    • @Biggie Cheesie I think you are talking about Pita. But that's another dish

    • pizza is from Greece

  • Oh it's PIZZA. PIZZA FOR MEN...

  • fucking love your videos my guy im drunk at 2 am and vibing to your videosses KEEP IT UP MY MAN

  • This is the New York Pizza Police! Puts your hands in the AIR! You are under arrest for suspicion of pizza treason.

  • As a New Yorker you should be ashamed

  • Jon Stewart is the only true Daily Show host! Trevor Noah is a hack!

  • Cinnamon! Cinnamon-o-mon! You should put a pinch into your sauce. Just a pinch. You can’t taste it and it will enhance the natural sweetness of the tomatoes.

  • Ive tried making it after one bite my stomache said:STOP, STOP And gave it a homeless guy

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="23">0:23</a> HE REMINDS ME OF MR. DMARTINO FROM DARIA HAHA


  • They are their own amazing creations

  • People make it seem like it’s so different it literally tastes the exact same

  • It's not as bad as St Louis style pizza, which while not as controversial, is WAY WORSE THAN EVERY OTHER PIZZA IN EVERY WAY-

  • seeing Chicago deep dish makes me get physically violent

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

    • @Sean Strife you know im right tho.

    • Whooooooa, let's not get TOO crazy there.

  • 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

    • Well generally, I like cheese. Therefore I want to eat cheese. Granted, this is a huge amount, but probably shared, so not a lot. But what is the difference between this and a large cheese platter?

  • 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!
