Kris’s Detroit-Style Pan Pizza Squares.

“Detroit-Style Sicilian Pan Pizza Squares! Thick slices of homemade pan pizza with mozzarella and provolone mixed and fresh tomato sauce.

Q: What’s your cooking background?

Kris: I first learned to cook from my mother and grandmother. They immigrated to Chicago from Sicily in the 1950’s to seek out a better life. They were both amazing cooks that put love into everything made. They taught me how to cook classic Italian/Sicilian comfort foods with fresh ingredients and love. All my recipes come straight from the old country and have been perfected over Sunday dinners and family parties.

Q: Where did you grow up and what kind of food did you grow up with?

Kris: I grew up right here in Chicago eating classic Italian and American food at home, while enjoying all the amazing food this city has to offer.

Q: What’s your favorite food memory?

Kris: My favorite food memory is coming home from school and my family was canning tomato sauce. It was a once a year event that filled the house with these amazing smells. That night we would eat fresh pasta with the scratch made sauce.
