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.

  • Neopolitan pizza for the win 😘

  • Let's just say, that I am incredibly glad that I am not from Chicago and do not live near to it...

  • One third of a cup plus two tablespoons. God, I love imperial units.

  • I'm italian and I'm nowhere near as triggered as that dude on TV that this exist. I would actually spend a good amount of money and suffer Chicago horrible weather to try a restaurant one, that looks delish.

  • “It’s gonna resist a little at first, but that’s okay.”

  • I got your ad

  • When I started watching this video I got an ad at the start and it was a binging with babish ad

  • Me: *gets a binging with babish ad* *insert Obama awarding Obama meme*

  • I'll be honest, outside of Uno's I haven't had a Chicago style deep dish with the sauce on top, and that's counting having it from pizza places in Chicago that my Chicago native father in law took me to. Also not comparing it with New York style is fair, I also wouldn't compare it with the floppy soggy mess known as New York style ;)

  • I got a binging with babish ad on this video... Great job youtuber

  • Let's be honest, guys. All pizza is great pizza.

  • It aint even New York style; everywhere in the US makes pizza that way. Even in Chicago most pizza places make “New York style”

  • Did you know banish has a whiskey brand?

  • As someone who can firmly declare a place in the neutral camp, I've had New York-style pizza, and I've had Chicago-style pizza, and to me, they are both awesome meals to eat, especially when you get leftovers. Honestly, I love the think New York pizza that you can fold in half and still not fit it into your mouth. Just like I love the Chicago pizza that is so hearty it requires cutlery to eat at all.

  • Im italian and What the hell is New York pizza

    • 🤷🏿‍♂️, probably a load of grease and sugar 😂🤣

  • Pretty sure Detroit style is best

  • 3:36 to 3:42 tells us how to get women from bars

  • There was an add for binging with babish while I’m watching binging with babish

  • My go to pizza order: Chicago style, pepperoni, pineapple, with a 50/50 mixture of marinara and bbq sauce. Please send me all your hatred, It makes the perfect dipping sauce.

  • Don´t let Vincenzo´s Plate see this ... After watching him watching Ramsay doing his weird version of Cabonara I think this would instantly kill him

  • what watch is he wearing?

  • I find babish cute. And i don't mean cute as in "handsome but not that much". Mean cute. In the same way a cat is cute.

  • I miss John Stewart on the daily show(even though I often disagreed with him), Trevor Noah is just a straight up hack!

  • I honestly really want to try a Chicago style pizza. It sounds legit really good

  • "One third of a cup plus two tablespoons" Fuck now there's a measurement

  • God I miss Jon Stewart!

    • Tell me about it, Trevor Noah is annoying af

  • That isn't a pizza😂

  • There is l i t e r a l l y no such thing as "California Pizza", only pizza that happens to be served in California

  • I can't find deep dish pizza easily in Michigan. I _want_ a very cheesy, very meaty pizza but all the main chains I can find just make a regular pizza with 3-5x as much crust, maybe make it square, and _call it_ deep dish. I've never been able to _try_ a proper deep dish.

  • It's a cake.

  • I loved the rant more than the pizza

  • Americand getting mad for a pizza when what they do (even in New York) is nothing related to original pizza

  • I just call it Pizza Cake.

  • I had to pause this video almost immediately... you haven't been to Giordano's but your description of the crust is flawed (I actually hate their crust) -- it's basically biscuit dough. But their ingredients are spectacular. I love Ny style pizza but I love fresh mozz more.

  • It's weird how we say if Bread is bready then it's bad but the bread is just being more like itself so does that mean we like bready that's not like bread

  • If a presidental candidate ever vowed to outlaw deep dish pizza, I'd donate all my ownings and illegally vote a thousand times to help them get elected. Deep dish isn't even worth wiping your ass with

  • the deep dish pizza we had at elementary were very good if you ask me

  • what town do you live in?

  • when you come here only for that cheese stretch

  • disgusting

  • Mmmm.... Lou Malnati's...

  • Awesome pizza! The reason the cheese is slices is because if you’re using sausage or pepperoni in a Chicago style deep dish it is big chunks and it’s much easier to lay sausage on slices than shredded.

  • The tomato topping must only be crushed tomato with a pinch of salt - nothing else.

  • I wish John Stewart hosted the Late Nite Show. I miss the guy. Better then that hack that can't come up with better jokes. What a disaster!


  • Red pepper in pizza crust 😱. Why would you do that?

  • Oh, and Chicago tavern style pizza is better than NY style as well. It's okay, guys.

  • People who say fruits don’t belong on a pizza Tomatoes,olives:am I a joke to you

  • Watching this after coming back from Chicago. Giordano's has completely won me over.

  • Now that I have moved to the Seattle area I would love to see a Detroit style pizza. It's the one thing I miss from home

  • What's so good about new York pizza?

  • cate doesnt like eating deep dish pizzas

  • I can't tell if the laughing at the beginning was a laugh track or a live audience. He wasn't saying anything funny and the timing said laugh track to me but it sounded pretty realistic

  • I’m hungry 😡

  • Try to not heat the tomatosauce beforehand when doing a pizza. I've had better results, and it's less work.

  • I want someone who makes sure that I'm alive and well like Babish does with his yeast

  • Can I be one of your hungry friends in the other room?

  • You're amazing

  • Remind me the Quiche Lorraine

  • cail pizza is bad i should know i live in cail

  • Me who was born in and lives in Chicago: IM VERY OFFENDED BY THE FIRST SCENE but I love this episode.

    • No seriously I texted this to my family they are genuinely offended.

  • he said 30 to 35 from a 12 inch pizza i think he meant 3 to 5

  • Did he say 30-35?

  • So if Chicago pizza is a casserole, should I try making casserole like this? Basically a bread pie right? I'm going to have so many heart attacks.

  • Gotta say I never understood deep dish pizza and wasn't interested in it. Then I had it. Then I changed my mind. Give me both styles man I'll eat them both. California btw.

  • I am gonna die in Italian

  • As an Italian-american, eat whatever you want, but pizza not made at home is a sin 😌

    • @ertio my opinion, but enjoy it however you want

    • Nah mate that's not true


  • anyone know for the dry ingredients if it is ounces weight or ounces volume?

  • Chicago Style FTW

  • I mean, cornmeal aside, this looks a lot like the kind of pizza you could get in Bari or in Sicily, so I don't get why anybody (Italians included) would freak out about it.

  • Chicago style pizza is a MEAL. New York pizza is a cheap snack. Detroit pizza is a classic. Hawaiian pizza is underrated. Californian pizza is a joke. Italian pizza is... I'll respect the original.

    • Pineapple on pizza is disgusting

    • I forgot New Haven. There's a reason for that.

  • That deep dish pizza in the beginning looks like some kind of pie abomination

  • Jon: you know how i know I'm right? You call your pizza Chicago-style pizza, you call it deep dish pizza. You know what we call this? Pizza.

  • Meanwhile in indonesia: add ketchup and little cheese to some sweet bread and call it pizza

  • ew

  • At least we can all unite to shit on California 😂

  • Hot Take: all pizza is fine, eat what you like and don't shit on other people for eating what they like.

  • I like Italian pizza

  • ........ I watched this live, and I legit through my remote at my tv, chicago deep dish is the pizza of pizzas

  • That "chicago-style" pizza you showed at the beginning is the ugliest fucking thing I've seen in my life. You need to have Lou Malnatis shipped to your place if you want deep dish.

  • As someone from chicago john daily your a moron. I hope u have the runs for 9 years

  • is there such a thing called stuffed crust deep dish pizza

  • The most controversial???? Pineapple 🍍 FYI it’s wrong pineapple on pizza is satin

  • Honestly New York pizza is better....Italian pizza is even better

  • Babish was later found dead that night. The New York pizza gang got to him before the cops could protect him.

  • Comment below on what your favorite style of pizza is. :) California St. Louis Sicilian New York Chicago Detroit Greek Neapolitan Washington D.C. Grandma Style New Haven Trenton Quad City

  • I don't know what you picked up, but that is not deep dish pizza. You might want to take a trip to Chicago and try the real thing from Lou Malnati's.

  • I want deep dish pizza now

  • Cheese then sausage

  • I prefer Chicago *tavern* style pizza; thin crispy crust, sauce not too sweet, lots of mozz, ideally with sausage mushrooms onions and peppers; and, though round, cut into squares, so you can fight with your friends over the corner pieces. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

  • Bro cheese first not sausage. Smh

  • Hey man, I’m from Chicago and i ny pizza is great. But Chicago style Lou deep dish with that dummy thick sausage disk is insanely good

  • Chicago pizza way better than new York If your not drinking the cheese its not done right

  • That was an awesome Chicago-Style Pizza recipe!

  • They forgot to add the suace then call it chicago style😂😂

  • I am torn. All that in the sauce, probably spectacular but Chicago sauce is pretty basic, beautiful and bold. that semi sweetness...lil taste of salt, hollow fresh whole crushed......that crust..yum.

  • I work at a chicago style pizza place and I want to die

  • After having been to New York, Miami, Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles, Chicago is definitely the next American city I’ll visit. Supposed to go this year to drive through the Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles, but we all know how that turned out. I have to try authentic deep dish Pizza, because the ones here in Europe (whilst still delicious) are not the authentic ones.
