          Not liking it because it is more like a lasagna but I am definitely not hating either just seems so very heavy.

            The first pizza must taste better than it looks because the sausage must be on top so it get crispy along with cooking the sauce .I guess I need to be there until I can judge

                                                  faiyaz aziz a lot of people,even Italians eat it like that and pizza originated from their country. Nobody is really forcing anybody to do so,so I don’t see the problem with using fork and knives

                                                  The only way to serve a deep dish pizza is to burn it to a crisp and send it straight to hell.
