The recipe is not correct. Use AP flour only; there is--and never has been--cornmeal in Chicago deep dish pizza. Butter isn';t used except to 9sometimes) grease pans--the buttery taste comes from corn oil. More oil is needed (2.5-3 Tablespoons per cup of flour).

Not nearly enough oil and the kneading time is too long. To achieve the biscuit-like texture of authentic Chicago deep dish, you need a ratio of 3 Tablespoons oil to 1 cup flour. Mix for 1 minute, then knead for no more than 2.""

This is not the recipe for authentic Chicago-style deep dish pizza (except for the mixing/kneading time). Authentic deep dish uses all-purpose flour, not bread flour. There is no cornmeal in the dough. There is significantly more oil in the dough (a good ratio is 1 Tablespoon oil to 1 cup flour).
