April 5, 2018 - Food Topics: Deep Dish Pizza, Burrito, Caramel, Medication Safety

 National Deep Dish Pizza Day


The primary difference between deep-dish pizza and most other forms of pizza is that, as the name suggests, the crust is very deep, creating a very thick pizza that resembles a pie more than a flatbread. Although the entire pizza is very thick, in traditional Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas, the crust itself is thin to medium in thickness.

Deep-dish pizza is baked in a round, steel pan that is more similar to a cake or pie pan than a typical pizza pan. The pan is oiled in order to allow for easy removal as well as to create a fried effect on the outside of the crust. In addition to ordinary wheat flour, the pizza dough may contain corn meal, semolina, or food coloring, giving the crust a distinctly yellowish tone. The dough is pressed up onto the sides of the pan, forming a bowl for a very thick layer of toppings.

The Medication Safety Campaign offers this advice:
  • Use medication wisely
  • Read all labels carefully
  • Be careful when taking supplements. Supplements can interact with other pills you are taking or have an adverse affect just like medicine
  • Report side effects to your doctor and pharmacist promptly
  • Don't hesitate to ask any questions about supplements and the use of medications
