Make Your Own Chicago Deep Dish Pizza from The Bear!

Now that you’ve finished Season 2,  it’s time to recreate the legendary Chicago Deep Dish Pizza from The Bear!

Oh, I see what you’re getting at! If we’re going to whip up a dish inspired by The Bear, the beloved FX series, why not go all out and create the legendary Italian beef sandwich? Well… you’re not wrong, but if I’m being honest, I would rather devour a Chicago deep dish pizza any day! (I also tacked on Matty Matheson’s beef video at the end of the post for all you deep dish haters!)

I am a colossal fan of The Bear. I couldn’t care less if the episode is packed with action (Christmas dinner!) or simply a feast for the eyes (dessert in Copenhagen!), I consumed every tasty bite the series dished out. (ALL puns intended!) But let’s be real, Season 2’s “Forks” was the pièce de résistance.

“Forks” followed Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) as he reluctantly temps at an upscale eatery while The Bear is under renovation. He has to start at the bottom but soon discovers the true value of service and routine. The whole episode is a joy to watch from beginning to end.

While at the restaurant, he creates an exceptional experience for a group of diners using a Chicago deep dish pizza. To fully appreciate the moment, you’ll have to watch the episode! (Also, whoever thought Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” would be the perfect song for Richie?! Genius!)
