Introduction: Mini Deep Dish Pizza
Disclaimer: This is my very first instructable ever and I apologize in advance for how "bland" it is and how poor the quality is picture wise.
This is a quick and easy Mini deep dish for anyone that is wanting to create something small that packs a big punch.
Step 1: Ingredients:
- Pizza Dough
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Olive Oil
- Pizza Sauce
- "Cup Cake" Bowls
- Flour (optional)
Now I didn't include any Measurements for the ingredients since you will be using very little of each, except for the pizza dough. I spent about $10 on ingredients and only used about $1.20 worth.
Step 2: Preparing Your Pizza.
Since I was using dishes designed for cupcakes. I decided to use a cupcake liner for the outline in which to cut my dough. If you do want the crust to go over the edge then I suggest you cut a little bit bigger than intended. If you do have a hard time handling dough, Then you can use a little flour as a base so your dough does not stick.
After you have cut out a outline, gently place it into your dish and start to mold it.
Add a little bit of olive oil on the inside and apply it to the entire dough.
Now you are ready to add your sauce and ingredients. As for myself I decided to go the Sauce - Cheese - Pepperoni - Sauce - Cheese - Pepperoni route. However you are free to do what pleases you.
Step 3: Cooking and the End Result
Now my little cupcake dishes were only rated for being cooked at 400F. Now depending on the dish you are using it will vary in time and temperature. The rule with cooking these though is that when the crust is a nice golden brown. Cook it for another 10 minutes so the entire dish can melt and cook properly.
I myself cooked it at 400F at about 20-30 minutes. The end result was as you see, A delicious mini deep dish pizza. Sadly I did leave the flour on the bottom of the pizza so I got that white look but it was indeed cooked thoroughly. If you want you can coat the bottom with olive oil as well so you get that crispier type of crust.
