This. Pizza. Divine.
It wasn't as if we didn't already have a truly decadent pizza recipe that we devour once a month while watching a movie. I had to go and find a deep dish recipe, one that is much easier to assemble I might add, that is out-of-this-world yummy!
We have one size of cast iron skillet.
It is a honkin' 14-inch skillet that weighs a ton without a steaming deep dish spicy cheesy pizza inside.
Add the pizza and it weighs a mint.
We dished up this deep dish, stuffed mozzarella pizza in 1/8 slices and by the time I ate the last bite I possibly could I was sneezing (I have gustatory rhinitus or snatiation disease). Look at those layers meats and cheese - yum.
A couple notes: I brushed the edges with the melted butter and garlic powder and sprinkled on a smidgen more Italian seasoning. I generally like my cheese slightly broiled on top, but when I tried to broil the cheese the edges of the crust were beginning to brown to dark so I let it stand as is.
And, it was delightful, of course.
I would be careful adding any ingredients that have a tendency to increase moisture as the crust or insides may become soggy.
