Deep Dish Pizza


This is probably the easiest pizza I had ever made.

It could be even easier if using a store bought pizza dough!

Alls you need is a cast iron - it's a must.

Otherwise, you could try using a cake pan....or a spring form pan....but cast iron does this pizza good.

You can top it with whatever your heart desires.

Mine needs garlic, onions and basil.

But some crumbled sausage and broccoli - like my recipe here!

Or pears and gorgonzola with honey drizzled.

Or a bacon and chives with swiss....I could go on and on. Because PIZZA IS LIFE.

Just be sure to use great fresh ingredients, simply because pizza is made up of only a few ingredients.

You want the toppings to shine. And especially the cheese - use good fresh cheese!

Speaking of cheese...

So go make some pizza now will ya!

Easy as it gets right here

Ingredients:

  • Pizza Dough - my recipe here or use premade store dough

  • Crushed San Marzano tomatoes - or your favorite pizza sauce

  • Fresh Mozzarella

  • 7 cloves of garlic smashed

  • 1/4 red onion, sliced into thin rings

  • Fresh Basil

  • Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • Olive Oil

Directions:

  1. Prepare pizza dough - if making from scratch. Otherwise skip to next step.

  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, oil a cast iron and place into the oven to heat up.

  3. When ready - place your dough into the cast iron, you'll hear it sizzle. Prick the bottoms with your fingernails when forming, and let the dough come up about 1/2 inch up the pan.

  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned.

  5. Top with garlic, pizza sauce, mozzarella and onions and bake for another 8-10 minutes until gooey and bubbly ontop.

  6. Top with fresh basil and parmesan and ENJOY!

YAS.
