❓ All about Geno’s East
Gino’s East most distinguishing feature is not that its pizza is deep dish, but because it is made with a cornbread crust.
🕵️♀️ Secret Ingredient
It’s the Cornbread. Cornbread crust is light, crunchy and golden colored dough that is made with corn oil.
Now, at the risk of sounding very corny, I think you’ll dig the crust.
It’s over 2 inches thick and cooked perfectly to a golden brown that makes it crunchy and insanely addicting.
🧀 Secret Ingredient #2
If I asked you to guess how much cheese they put in one of these pies you’d probably never guess.
They put more than a pound of aged mozzarella cheese in that bad boy.
