Taste test: Crust Pizza – Chicago Deep Dish11

Posted on December 8, 2010 by ChristieTaste Tests

Having a newborn baby in the house means that, sadly, there’s not much time for cooking.

So when Becci from Keep Left PR emailed to ask if I’d like to taste test the new Crust Pizza Chicago Deep Dish pizza I didn’t hesitate in my response.

All offers of free food or help with cleaning are greatly accepted and appreciated by me right now!

Hubby and I tried both flavours: Vegetarian Antipasto (pictured above) and Italian Sausage

I’ve never been to Chicago or ever eaten of these deep style pizzas (they’re almost the height of a cake!), so I don’t have anything to compare these to, but they were really yummy.

I’m not sure if this is a good description, but the crust tasted like a crisper version of Turkish Pide, with a definite taste of olive oil – more so than in a regular pizza base.

The generous portion of toppings is a bit overwhelming at first but works really well with the extra crisp base.

I liked both flavours but preferred the Italian Sausage because it had more melted cheese on top! I’ll definitely alternate these with pizzas from my local joint once in a while.

Added bonus: Crust Pizza will donate $1 from the sale of every Deep Dish Pizza to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) to help with finding a cure. Buy one to do your part for charity!
