Dish Famous Stuffed Pizza grew from a Chicago-style pizza haven into a restaurant serving eight other specialty, handmade dough disks, and 50 bottled import beers give the libation roster an even more pronounced variety. After finding a table or donning a slick jumpsuit to slide headfirst into a red vinyl booth, patrons can peruse the menu, which stars 12-inch deep-dish pizzas such as the spinach embedded in a triad of mozzarella, parmesan, and romano cheeses ($18.50). The Taylor Street deep-dish transports taste buds to Chicago’s iconic Italian lane with green peppers, sausage, and mushrooms ($18.50), or table denizens can lay down utensils to enjoy 14-inch thin-crust pizzas such as the five-meat with bacon, sausage, pepperoni, canadian bacon, and hamburger ($20). Eschew circular geometry by warming up left incisors with deluxe sandwiches such as the Clark Street combo, which stacks layers of Chicago-style beef, italian sausage, and mozzarella alongside au jus, tangy giardiniera, and a working meat replica of Navy Pier’s convention room C ($9.50).
Alongside the roster of bottled import beers that hits the half-century mark and a wine list that catalogs reds, whites, imports, and domestics, the bar and its tenders pour 14-ounce ($3–$3.75) and 22-ounce ($4.25–$5) drafts of craft and traditional beers such as Goose Island’s Honker’s ale, another Chicago staple, and Boulevard pale ale. Dish Famous Stuffed Pizza’s eponymous dish has achieved such success that 110 grocery stores in four states stock the culinary treat, rendering it subject to the same interstate commerce laws that regulate the tooth fairy’s business.
Dish Famous Stuffed Pizza
Liberty, Missouri, is slightly out of the delivery zone of most Chicago pizzerias, so when Jason and Mattie Ransom moved there, they needed another way to get their fix of deep-dish pizza. They decided to try their hand at recreating their favorite pie from scratch, unknowingly laying the groundwork for Dish Famous Stuffed Pizza.
The Ransom’s homespun recipe for Chicago-style deep-dish pizza has lasted more than 15 years, first gracing the tables of their restaurant before spreading out to grocery stores and forward-thinking vending machines. At their eatery, they still sling dough each day, complementing deep-dish disks with thin-crust and hand-tossed pies, half-pound Black Angus burgers, Chicago-style italian beef sandwiches, and 50 different bottles of imported and craft beer.
