Sunday Dinner: Deep Dish Pizza

Deep dish pizza is an excellent, non-traditional Sunday dinner. It's perfect for filling a crowd, and watching the Oscars. Making pizza is also a great way to get the family together. Rolling out the dough is always more fun when loved ones help. Start to make the pizza in the morning because the dough has to rest for four hours.

To take a look at this delicious deep dish pizza — say that five times fast! —

Deep Dish Pizza
From Lou Malnati's Pizzeria

Pizza Dough:
16 ounces water
1/8-ounce yeast
1/2-ounce salt
2 pounds bread flour
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup cornmeal
Toppings:
2 cups tomato sauce, jar or homemade
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup spinach, shredded
1/2 cup grated Romano
1/2 cup sliced pepperoni
1/2 cup grated Parmesan

  1. In a mixer combine the water and the yeast and allow the yeast to dissolve.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients except for the cornmeal and begin to mix the dough using a dough hook on low speed. Once a ball is formed mix on medium speed for 1 to 2 minutes until the dough becomes elastic and smooth.
  3. Remove from the mixer and place in a bowl coated with olive oil. Allow the dough to rest for approximately 4 hours.
  4. Once the dough is rested, place on flat surface and dust with some flour.
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  6. In a deep baking dish or deep dish pizza pan, spread the dough using your fingers at the bottom of the pan and make sure to have enough dough to come up the sides of the pan approximately 1/2-inch high.
  7. Begin by placing a layer of the mozzarella cheese on the bottom of the crust. Add the tomato sauce and all of the toppings.
  8. Place in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes until golden and crispy. Serve pizza straight from the oven to the table.

Serves 6.
