Deep Dish Pizza

We love pizza at our house.  I am sure you have noticed that if you read my menu planning posts. It shows up often on the menu.  Pizza is an easy and frugal meal that my whole family loves.

However, we get tired of the same old thing.  I try to do different things to keep the pizza interesting. Sometimes we use pepperoni as a topping and sometimes sausage. I even make barbecue pizza using chicken or pork.  We also like to make french bread pizza.

One of my favorite ways to change pizza up is to make it deep dish.  It is really simple to do this and it is one of my husband’s favorite ways to eat pizza.

Do you ever make deep dish pizza at home?

  1. great idea, thanks!

  2. This looks really yummy! I need to make homemade pizza soon. Your pictures of pizza look so good!
    God bless,

  3. I am a little confused by this, but would like to try it. You make the dough and press it into ONE 9×13 pan and pour sauce and toppings over and the crust ends up coming up over the toppings to make it deep dish?? Or do you use 2 pans? I am probably making this more complicated than it is! Looks really yummy..

    • @Michelle, Yes, you just press the crust into a 9×13 pan and then add the toppings. The deep dish part is mainly because the crust is so much thicker and deeper than a normal pizza. Normally this same amount of dough would be rolled/presses out to make 2 thinner pizzas on pizza pans. I hope that helps and makes sense.
