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.

  • I’m a New Yorker and deep dish > thin crust. Fight me.

  • I wanna know when I get drunk and pass out on my pizza that I am not gonna drown.

  • But plain, no meat or sausage or vegetables? ;-(

  • 5:01 *dead silence*

  • i actually like deep dish pizza better...

  • American pizza shouldn't even be called pizza, looks disgusting. The only pizza is the Italian pizza.

  • BwB Cook Book?! i need that

  • I love deep dish with spinach

  • Deep Pan only mate, deep dish has far to much tomsto

  • For a second I thought you were gonna be badmouthing deep dish through the whole experience, I was pleasantly surprised

  • california pizza is better than any pizza out there

  • Me from California:...yeah, thats fair

  • Wait until Jon Stewart finds out about Colorado style Pizza

  • Deplorable

  • Jon Stewart doing Italian face.

  • The amount of dishes he uses gives me crippling anxiety

  • thats not a pizza, thats a swimming pool of sauce and liquid cheese

  • Is no one going to explain why the cheese goes under the sauce? Okay, I guess I will. When you leave it in the oven for 40 minutes, the cheese would all burn if it went on top.

  • Man, I miss Stewart. That was awesome lol.


  • It might be fair to diss California pizza, but just come on down and try our Mexican food. I swear it is life changing

  • 8:22 How to rebut someone who says pineapple doesn't belong on pizza.

  • Okay, as a Chicagoan, I need to point out that deep dish is *NOT* Chicago-style pizza. Chicago-style pizza is a completely different type of pizza. Deep dish simply happens to be the most popular type we have. Chicago-style is a traditionally flat pizza with a hard buttery crust, very thick cheese, and large balls of sausage. That is the most common type of pizza you'd find in the city. Homerun Inn is a prominent example of this type of pizza, though I personally prefer Beggars.

  • Hey yo babish what if you do "the special taco from taco town" from SNL

  • This is a recipe for a 12 inch cast iron skillet, or enough to feed 30-35 people...... People? Or Ants?

  • @ 5:15 Babish: “This is a recipe for a 12 inch skillet or enough to feed 30-35 people” 🤣🤣🤣

  • deep dish sucks. thin crust all day.

  • Why do Americans get so touchy about Italian food?

  • How might I make the dough without an electric dough...hook...thing? Basically I don't have that, and don't have money for one

  • I made this tonight, it was perfection! So delicious ! Thank you so much😊

  • I must say, you're right. I live in California and I just saw a fully vegan pizza with pesto for tomato sauce and avocado on top.

  • Californians: "_*cries in marijuana cigarettes*_" ***REEFERS***

  • Lasagna

  • I have lived “near” Chicago, so I have had all the Chicago Style Deep Dish. And it’s amazing. When I (eventually) take a trip to New York, where do I want to go for pizza? Have at it, RU-tv.

  • "Deep-dish pizza is not only not better than New York pizza, it's not pizza. *iT's A fUcKiNg CaSsErOlE* "

  • Beet sugar /juice makes it sweet Brown sugar Or or or or cinnamon

  • I want it!!!!!!

  • The red sea thing WAS funny

  • It’s sad when I can tell where he got the pizza from in the thumbnail

  • that pizza is always fire

  • How much water is he using in ml?

  • Babish you know how to make someone hungry let me tell you that 👍

  • thats a pan crust my guy. gotta go thinner on the crust. possibly adding another layer of crust cheese sauce on top to make it stuffed

  • I don't really understand your problem with sauce on top. New Yorkers do it too with the Brooklyn square and it is also delicious. It's a Sicilian thing. Also, I don't get the big deal about "New York" style. In Chicago at least they are cooking you a fresh pie. New York style usually means you're getting a slice that's been sitting there god knows how long and reheated with OK crust and average "meh" cheese. The better style of pizza in New York is Napoli style, not New York, but Napoli style is way overpriced and you might as well just make it at home.

  • Macaroni cheese pancakes yummmiiii

  • Oh fuck Jon Stewart

  • Are u cog gray

  • 8:34 u wanna get?

  • I may be out of line here, but I really don't see what's so special about New York Style pizza. It's basically a giant slice of Little Caesar's. It's a huge triangle of cheese and thin but soft dough with a bunch of greasy ass cheese that is somehow so greasy that it makes literally everything else greasy and gross.

  • I'm curious what it'd be like to use a muffin tray and make miniature versions

  • If you ever come to the Windy City, definitely recommend checking out Pequod's sometime! So good

  • You should make this Chicago pizza pot pie please do it I wanna know how to make it properly

  • Make detroit style damnit

  • I’m surprised I’m saying this, but Jon Stewart is right in this case. Why in the name of all that’s holy is the damn sauce ON TOP OF THE CHEESE?!

  • I kinda wish you made your own Italian sausage What? It’d be a good way to babishify the recipe

  • «The cheese and toppings are ubiquitous» hahaha

  • oh dang babish has heartburn! poor babish

  • So when its time to simmer the sauce, is it simmered for 20-30 min over medium heat or low heat?

  • I’m from Chicago but don’t like deep dish I prefer the thin crispy home run inn pizza

    • Chicago is famous for its thin crust pizza.

    • This guy gets it.
