This pizza was fantastic! Above and beyond any other pizza recipes I've tried from Cooking Light (or anywhere else, for that matter). What a dramatic presentation, too! My cast iron skillet is a 10", though, so the pizza was slightly thicker, but I prefer a thick crust, anyway. The only change I would make would be to add a little bit more salt to the dough which tasted a touch bland compared with the salty toppings. Very true-to-form for the Chicago-Style Pizza, though.

I was slightly disappointed with this recipe, being a cheese lover. The pizza came out looking and smelling awesome but when I bit into it, all that mozzarella on the bottom seemed to disappear somewhere. If I'm gonna consume the calories, I want to at least taste it!! The sauce was KILLER, though. I will make again, but next time I'll put the cheese on the top. Changes: Trader Joe's whole wheat dough, fresh rosemary instead of fennel seed, stirred some wine into the sauce.

Wonderful! The whole family loved it. Takes a little time to make, but definitely worth it!

I used premade pizza dough :( :( and put this pizza in together in only 15 minutes. If I shut my eyes, I would swear that I was in a Chicago!! It was absolutely wonderful! I will make the homemade dough next time though!!
