Tasty Tuesday ~ OUR Deep Dish Pizza Pie
OUR Deep Dish (AKA thick crunchy crust) Pizza Pie
*Pizza Dough made in Bread Machine
Now I know this is NOT your traditional deep dish pizza, but it is how we make our own deep dish! The crust is a “never fail” pizza crust and when used in a greased baking dish, it makes for a thick and crispy delicious crust! We then double layer the cheese and pepperoni and have the KELSEY DEEP DISH PIZZA PIE!
I love that the crust is pretty forgiving… I can start it in the am and get to it when I get to it… the kids can make their own pizzas or we can make this delicious pizza pie!
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 TBS sugar
2 TBS oil (flavored olive oil is delicious)
1 cup and 2 TBS water
1 packet yeast (2 tsp.)
In order, place the above ingredients into bread machine and set the dough setting…. Once complete put dough in a greased bowl and spray top of dough. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and a towel and allow dough to double in size… within 1 hour my dough was pushing the top of the towel.
Spread dough into a GREASED 9X13… or 2-9 inch pie pans. You can also use dough on a standard pizza pan or stone but the greased ‘edge’ pans will create the thick puffy crust. Bake dough for 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven… allow to cool to the touch then prepare pizza to your liking….
Turn oven up to 425 degrees ~
Create your pizza; we use sauce, a layer of mozzarella, a layer of pepperoni, another layer of mozzarella and a final layer of pepperoni… it’s like a pizza lasagna of sorts…. Of course you could add tons of veggies at any point…
Bake for 18-20 minutes until cheese is bubbling and outer crusts have browned! YUMMMOOOO
