Chicago Deep Dish Banner


Pizza took on its modern form more than 100 years ago in Italy, and since then it has spread all over the world. The two most famous are New York style and Chicago style pizza (also called deep-dish pizza). In Kuala Lumpur or Selangor Area (Klang Valley) Malaysia, you can enjoy authentic Chicago-style pizza at Pizza Express. Read on to learn more about what makes this type of pizza special.

The Crust

“Pizza-pie” is a common term for a pizza, but it doesn’t really describe most types of pizza accurately. Chicago-style Deep Dish pizza, however, is baked in a round pan similar to a pie pan—this is the “deep dish” that gives the pizza its name. The buttery, rich dough is spread on the bottom of the oiled pan, and it is baked with double the usual toppings added. It is crispy, flaky, and rich.

The Assembly

Deep dish pizzas require longer times in the oven than thin-crust pizzas. Chicago deep dish style pizzas are built in the following order: crust, cheese, toppings, tomato sauce and cheese again.

The Toppings

Deep dish has room for a larger quantity of toppings, because the crust is sturdier. Also, it is meant to be eaten with knife and fork instead of with your hands, so a deep dish pizza slice come piled high with double the amount of delicious ingredients.

Deep dish pizza crust option comes in Regular (10”) pizza size for all pizza flavours. You will be able to select the Deep Dish crust option when you select regular size option in the desired pizza flavour page.
