Picture of Beer Crust Deep Dish Pizza
Thanks for checking out my Pizza!  This pizza has a crust on the top as well as the bottom. It can be made the typical way by just reducing the crust recipe by half and cooking it directly on a pizza stone pre-heated in the oven. You would need to use a pizza peel to properly remove the pizza if making it in this typical fashion.

I use a bread machine to make the dough, but it can be made without it as well. It just takes a bit more effort..
What you will need for making the pizza this particular way is a 10″ deep dish pan.  Preferably a stone deep dish pan.

Please check out this quick time lapse video for an overview!

Step 1: The Dough

Picture of The Dough
1 1/4 cups of warmed beer (Boddingtons is awesome but use whatever you like)
2 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon oregano
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dry yeast

Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees.  Using a bread machine, pour in 1 1/4 cup of warmed beer,  add 2 cups of white flour, 1 cup of whole wheat, 1 tablespoon sugar, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese and 2 teaspoons of dry yeast. Set the machine to the dough setting and watch it do its thing!

(Alternatively, dissolve 2 teaspoons yeast in 1/4 cup water with 1 tablespoon sugar in a large bowl. Let rest for 5-10 minutes until foamy. Add 2 cups white flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese and 1 cup beer. Mix into a firm dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl, turning to coat with oil. Cover with oiled plastic wrap and a towel. Set in a warm spot and let rise about 30- 45 minutes, until puffy.)

Just made this beast... Bravo sir! Came out a treat (for a valentine's day meal... classy) and held together in a "pie" slice much better than expected.

I did find the dough made to this recipe was very soggy and I had to add a lot of flour to get it right. End result though was a really stretchy dough that tasted amazing.

I will be making this again to entertain some friends once I've finished the week worth of food this single pizza has provided.

Oh great idea, thanks. We sometimes do a beer themed night with beer cheese soup, beer bread, beer chili, etc. This would go right with it!
