It’s in the Dough:
My Pie’s deep dish dough recipe was developed from a baker’s perspective by my father, a fourth generation baker whose family came to the United States from Bialystock, Belarus in 1905.
My father’s recipe is made fresh everyday and timed so the third “proofing” of the dough is in the oven like all bread products should be developed. That is why My Pie pizza has a wonderful fresh yeast taste and a crispness that remains tender to the bite. Many deep-dish pizzerias needlessly “age-proof” their doughs overnight. From a true baker’s perspective, this over-proofs the dough, yielding a dead dough that has a stale like crunch.

Each Pizza is Unique:
Our thin crust, deep dish, and our stuffed pizzas use different tomatoes, sausages, spices, cheese, and dough so each pizza is made to have unique characteristics favorable to each type of pizza.
Cheese: We use a combination of up to four different cheeses in our different types of pizzas. All of our cheeses are artisan-made in central Wisconsin, where the best quality mozzarella is made with milk from grain-fed dairy cows.
Tomatoes: We use San Marzano tomatoes, which are grown in the lush fertile area around Modesto, California. They are vine ripened to develop a full sugar taste. Most tomatoes are double or triple cooked when canned. My Pie’s tomatoes are single cooked to keep their firmness and bright taste. Only a small amount of tomatoes are canned in this manner. It is our opinion that the tomatoes grown in this area are superior to the San Marzanos grown in Italy. The Italian version is higher in acid and not as sweet.
Tomato Sauce: Our tomato sauce is flavored with a special blend of herbs and spices to give it its unique flavor. Most pizzerias use just plain tomatoes straight out of the can and add no spices to enhance the pizzas flavor.
Sausage: Our sausage is made from fresh primal cuts of meat flavored with herbs and spices which complement our tomato sauce.
Sizes: Small pizza is 9 inches & serves 1-2. Medium is 12 inches & serves 3. Large pizza is 14 inches & serves 4. Carryout & Delivery: We prefer to not cut our deep dish pizza if you are carrying out or having it delivered. By not cutting the pizza, there are no avenues for the pizza sauce to seep down to the crust & make it soggy. Therefore, the pizza will arrive at its destination with a crisper crust & it will be a better pizza.
