Glad to offer my assistance. The crust is suppose to be crisp which can be “crunchy” depending. Usually a little more crunch the next day cold. Maybe it being a frozen pie caused this automatically.Lou Malnati's sausage deep dish pizza (delivered from Chicago).
@ChezC3, we did order the plain cheese and a sausage pizza from Lou Malnati's. Was supposed to arrive last Friday, then they sent an email that afternoon saying they had a mechanical breakdown and wouldn't ship it until Monday. Turns out they didn't ship until yesterday, so it did arrive today. We had the sausage, the taste of everything was good, the crust was a bit hard for some reason, don't think I over cooked it, not sure if it's supposed to be that way. We favor NY style, have forever, but wanted to try this one. Was good, glad we checked it out. Thanks for your input.
Nothing beats the from oven fresh so if ever in Chicago still give it a go.
I’ve not really had too many NY style. Here if we get thin crust it’s “Chicago cut” in squares, some may say tavern style I suppose but when I lived in Virginia and Kentucky both when I asked them to cut it in squares they said “Chicago cut no problem”.
Dags (D’Augustinos) on the North side and Aurelios on the South are two good ones though for Aurelios you got to go to the Homewood location where it all started with the original ovens. They’ve been known to have quality issues at other locations. Dags is on Southport and Addison perfect for a bite after the Cubbies. (Or anytime if you’re like me and telling the MLB to F off right now.) Both have a sweeter sauce to warn ya which I personally love but I know others don’t care for.
I can go on all day about pizza so....
