Deep Dish Pizza recipe

I married THE renaissance man- a jack of all trades. Remember this. While I have a tendency to grip about the amount of tv viewing- it does produce things like this....he watched a show on pizza joints on Food network and voila! He did it.

The wonderful thing about making your own pizza is options. If we order out, we get one, and it's generic. Pepperoni or sausage. I tend to like tomato and pesto, veggies galore. So I love making our own. I had a great recipe and then adopted a new one from PW's cookbook.

It makes a lot, refrigerates well and tastes perfect. Takes about an hour to go from this....

To this.......

UMMM, it's ready. While you were waiting fry up the meat, get the other stuff for it- this is deep dish, meaning it's a man's pizza, meat galore. We use this stuff too...

And we are into value, GREAT value.

You'll need some sort of deep dish baker, we use our pampered chef one, but any thing with sides will work. Sprinkle corn flour on the bottom of the pan, We use the stuff above.

Over lay the crust well over the edges. Add a little sauce.

Layer on the meat. This one has a layer of pepperoni, a later of sausage and then canadian bacon.

And because he's a man, he added bacon.

Slice the cheese thick. Don't use pre shredded stuff, it's got like weird stuff in it so it won't sick in the pkg. I have been using whole mild mozzarella, it's softer and good for stuff like this. But I hand shred it too sometimes.

Next comes the sauce.  A good layer of it. And top off with the seasonings, italian, garlic powder and Parmesan. I would use real Parmesan but this is Cody's pizza and he prefers the fake bottled stuff. 

He pulls the side crust up to make a thick layer, we've also simply wrapped it over the top like a calzone- very good too. Pizza pie.

Bake at 375 for 30- 45 min. watch it, don't let it burn. And be sure to invite people to the party who will bring things like this for dessert. Homemade by Whitney Pruitt. I loved that girl before she brought me this! Thank goodness she took it home. I could've eaten the whole thing.  

1 Corinthians 10:31
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
