+1 for "ugly". If it is symmetrical, you are too anal.

It is sad what places try to pawn off as "Chicago style" deep dish. True deep dish has a rather thin crust with edges that has more in common with a levened pie crust if you could imagine such a thing; tender and flaky on the outside with a light bready texture nestled up against cheesy meaty goodness on the inside. The toppings are also of the highest quality, and the sauce (traditionally raw crushed canned tomatoes) is on the top to keep the cheese and other ingredients from burning.

Honestly the only place you will find truly Chicago style pizza (besides small niche shops that rarely get it right anyway) is in Chicago because only Chicagoans have been conditioned to patiently wait 45 minutes for a "pizza".

Now that I live in Houston, I have spent the last 4 years trying to perfect my recipe since obviously I cannot find it here. I have come close, but its still not right. I think I am still kneading it too much. Next time I go the Chicago style route, I'll share pictures and technique. It is quite a bit different from any traditional pizza preps.

What is a "coal oven" pizza? surely not an oven heated with coal?

Yes, it is. Most are very old large bakery ovens. I'm not sure how they work but I know that the cooking chamber is isolated from the fire chamber because burning coal emits some pretty noxious gases. Typically they are massive so that once they get hot the heat is very even and stable.

What he said. Also, one of the hallmarks of a coal oven pizza are the little scorch marks on the bottom of the pie. I know that usually burn or char marks are a sign of overcooking (or uneven cooking) but for whatever reason it is heavenly on a coal oven pizza. If you ever find yourself in New York, I HIGHLY suggest paying a visit to Tottanos in Manhattan or Coney Island or Sac's in Astoria.
