Steve Dolinksy: Pizza City U.S.A.

Ready to bite into some Chicago pizza? Steve Dolinsky, an award winning culinary media personality known for his weekly Hungry Hound segment on  ABC  7 News Chicago and his podcast The Feed with Chef Rick Bayless, has a new book called Pizza City, U.S.A.: Why Chicago is America’s Greatest Pizza City. This new book is a great field guide for you to explore the best pizza in the Windy City.  You can also join Steve for a Pizza City USA pizza tour of Chicago.  In three hours you will sample four types of pizza including classic Chicago deep-dish, artisan style, Chicago tavern style, and New York Style sliced.  and Chicago has it all — thin crust tavern style, Neopolitan, New York pizza, deep dish, corn flour crust and a variety of other types.


Here are Steve Dolinsky’s top three tips for the home chef:

  1. Mise en place.  Make sure you have all ingredients prepped and ready to go.
  2. Read the recipe; and
  3. Work clean, i.e. clean as you go.

What is your favorite type of pizza?
