Flaky Thin Crust Chicago Inspired Pizza

80 mins (prep 60, cooking 20)
15 ingredients

This recipe is one i have tweaked and re-tweaked over time to ultimately perfect my favorite 2 components in a pizza. A deliciously flaky thin crust, and a tomato sauce similar to that of a traditional Chicago deep dish pizza. Rich and sweet. Being from Chicago, it's only natural.
