Why should pizza’s incredible toppings be limited to just the top? That’s the philosophy behind stuffed pizza – these are pies are packed to give you more of the meats, veggies, and cheese that you crave. You know, the good stuff.
It’s what’s inside that counts, right? This is especially true of stuffed pizza. All the good stuff packed in one, or two crusts.
Stuffed pie originated in Chicago in the early 1970s, when chefs experimented with deep dish pizza and thus created the famous stuffed pie. Nancy’s Pizza founders, Rocco and Nancy Palese (who are believed to have created this lip-smacking dish) popularized the dish as we know it.
By simply looking, you may think stuffed pie and deep dish pie are the same. However, there are some differences between them. Hence, what’s the difference between Chicago style stuffed pizza and deep dish pizza?
Both pies are made in a deep, round pan, and are covered with tomato sauce on top. But you can see the difference once you cut them. Deep dish pizza is made with one dough, whereas the stuffed pie has an additional layer of dough that goes on top. This results in a double-crust pie.
Stuffed crust pizza though, is created in the late 1980s and today is beloved both by kids and adults. It is a one-layer pizza with a filled crust, mostly with cheese.
The delicious stuffed crust pizza as the name says has topping even in the crust.
Once you bite it, you can feel the gooey, cheesy deliciousness in the crust. Some local pizzerias offer more options for a stuffed crust pie, so you can choose the one by your preferences. String cheese, shredded, or fresh mozzarella are just some of them.
You can order pizzas with different toppings and ask for a stuffed crust for an even more satisfying bite. This creamy add-on will take your pizza experience to the next level.

Chicago sure knows its pies, right? The homeland of the famous deep dish pizza has another legend among pies - Chicago style deep dish stuffed pie. This pizza assembles all the toppings among the two separate crusts.
