What is Deep Dish Pizza?
Also known as “Chicago-style” pizza, deep dish pizza refers to a pizza that has a high edge, usually a 2″-3″ high crust. It’s baked in a “deep dish” pan that mimics a cake pan, creating a wall of crust that is filled with toppings, then cheese and topped with pizza sauce. It’s like an extra thick, upside down pizza. Deep dish pizza is the ideal pizza design for lots of cheese and chunky tomato sauce, making it the perfect canvas to showcase Romeo’s signature pizza sauce.

So, what makes Romeo’s Deep Dish Italiano so good? For starters it’s made with our fresh dough that’s made in house daily. Thick, pillowy crust is baked in garlic butter to create a super flavorful base to the deep dish pizza. Next, we fill it with your favorite toppings. Our fave combo is sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and banana peppers. Pile on the cheese, then put it in the oven! Once it’s baked to perfection, we top it with our signature pizza sauce and a sprinkle of fresh seasonings.

In our opinion, our pizza sauce is what makes this pizza so good. Our sauce is made with sweet California tomatoes that are fresh-packed, meaning they are picked and canned within 8 hours. No stewing, no boiling down to tomato paste. Just light and sweet vine-ripened tomatoes. We make our sauce in house daily mixing our sweet California tomatoes with our signature spice blend to create our signature sweet pizza sauce. It’s less acidic and sweeter than traditional pizza sauce and is what gives Romeo’s its Award Winning flavor. The Deep Dish Italiano really lets our pizza sauce shine as it’s the first thing you taste when diving into our deep dish pizza!
