Deep Dish Pizza Pie

I have seen, made, and eaten this type of pizza made before and absolutely love it. Only problem with that is is whenever you order it in a restaurant takes long time to make it and can be very expensive. I have come up with my own type of recipe for the deep dish pizza pie by making everything from scratch. I will warn in advance this is a very hefty pizza, can feed a lot of people and can become very addicting but is very tasty.

Step 2: Making the Pizza Dough

Good crust and sauce are what make the pizza first we will start with the dough since it needs time to proof.
  1. Dissolve the sugar in the warm water then add the yeast, let it sit for 5 minutes.
  2. While the yeast is becoming a slurry mix together your dry ingredients and form a well in the middle.
  3. Now pour in the yeast slurry and mix thoroughly, after it is mixed kneed for 5 minutes.
  4. Now just form it into a ball set it back into the mixing bowl for proof between 90 and 120 minutes. Make sure to set it in a warm area.
While it is proofing we will work on the roasted garlic and pizza sauce.
