Shorewood is Known for Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza

The state of Illinois is known for many things, like the great city of Chicago, the White Sox, and Chicago deep-dish pizza. Chicago deep-dish pizza is a regional favorite in the northern section of midwestern United States, and Shorewood is no exception to this rule.

Chicago deep-dish pizza is made with a high edge around the crust of the pizza. These pizzas are baked in a round-shaped pan and cut into triangular slices. Some deep-dish pizzas can be three or four inches deep while others are only an inch or two.

The cheese is typically mozzarella cheese, but the cheese is put onto the pizza before the sauce, which is different from many other more traditional pizza styles. The cheese is underneath the sauce because it prevents the cheese from burning while the pizza cooks because deep-dish pizzas require more cooking time than other pizzas.
