Pizzeria Uno Chicago Style Pizza

Pizzeria Uno was founded in 1943 in Chicago and came to embody the classic deep-dish Chicago-style pizza that is now served around the world.[1] The chain's thick crust is typically topped with a mildly spicy tomato sauce, a generous layer of mozzarella cheese, and a variety of pizza toppings.

Even if you don't have a Pizzeria Uno near you or if eating at the restaurant is out of your budget, you can enjoy this restaurant-style pizza from the comfort of your home. This Pizzeria Uno Chicago Style Pizza recipe is not difficult to recreate, but it can take some practice and time to master. While this copycat recipe of Uno's Chicago Classic deep-dish pizza uses sausage, you can modify the pizza easily to use your favorite pizza toppings such as pepperoni, onions, green peppers, or black olives.

Pizzeria Uno Chicago Style Pizza Recipe

  1. Add the warm water and yeast in a medium-sized mixing bowl and whisk together.
  2. Add one cup of flour, salt, and vegetable oil.
  3. Stir in the rest of the flour, a half-cup at a time, until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Flour your hands and counter top or work surface and knead the dough until it is no longer sticky.
  5. Pour 1 tbsp. olive oil into a large mixing bowl. Put the dough in the mixing bowl and turn it twice so that the oil covers it evenly.[3]
  6. Allow the dough to rise for an hour.
  7. Grease your deep-dish pizza pan with a non-stick spray, then add 1 tbsp. olive oil and ensure all surfaces are well-coated.
  8. Stretch the dough in your hands to create a large circle and lay it in the pan. Ensure the dough is even.
  9. Cover the dough and allow it to rest for fifteen minutes.
  10. Preheat your oven to 475 degrees.[3]
  11. Stretch the dough to reach the edges of the pan and gently push the dough to cover the sides of the pan.[4]
  12. Arrange the mozzarella cheese slices on top of the dough.
  13. Place the sausage on top of the cheese.
  14. Gently crush the tomatoes with your hands and put them on top of the sausage.
  15. Add the garlic, seasonings, and Parmesan cheese.
  16. Bake the pizza for 20 to 25 minutes. Let it rest at room temperature for a few minutes before slicing.[3]

Learn some tips that will help you get your pan ready for your deep-dish pizza dough.


  • While you're baking your pizza, check it from time to time by lifting up a section of the crust with a spatula. When the crust is golden brown, it's ready![3]
  • If you're not a huge fan of sausage, get creative with your toppings and try to "copy" some of Pizzera Uno's own famous pies. For their renowned Numero Uno pizza, add sausage, pepperoni, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and grated Romano. To make a Farmer's Market Pie, use caramelized onions, spinach, sun-dried and plum tomatoes, eggplant, pesto, feta, and grated Romano. [6]
