Introduction: Personal Deep Dish Pizza
We have all been there one time or another you like everything on your pizza, but he only likes cheese, and she only likes a few things on her pizza. Or you live by yourself and don't want to get a whole pizza. This is the solution! A personal deep dish that you make with all of you favorite toppings, meat, and sauce, and nothing you dont want. This is a quick, yummy, and affortable dish that almost anyone can make. This can be used for family get togethers,when friends are over, or just a nice treat for you and your family.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
These are some of the things you might want on your pizza...
Meat-pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, bacon, and anyother meat you like
Vegetables/ toppings- peppers (bell or spicy), olives (green or black), mushrooms, onions, pineapple, and anything else you like
Cheese- I would recomend getting a block because it is usualy less expensive and has less preservatives than pre-shredded cheese.Again it's up to you- any kind of cheese you like
Sauce- your favorite store bought brand or home made. I would recomend searching Instructables for a home made recipe (this is a great way to test it out)
Crust- make this from a mix or home made
Oil or non stick cooking spray
coffee mug (oven safe- if it doesnt say but is thick you should be ok)
Step 2: Making the Pizza
Start by spraying or puting oil in and a couple inches down the rim of your (oven safe) coffee mug. Then put your ingredients into the cup in REVERSE order. Usualy start with cheese then meat and toppings and sauce last. If you have larger mugs like the ones shown don't fill them all the way up or they won't cook all the way. Keep in mind which mug is yours if mulitple people are making these. If you have different mugs that shouldn't be to hard, but if you have all the same i will share another tip in the next couple steps. If you look at the last pic the answer is not to break off the handle.
Step 3: Crust
Now is the time to prepair your crust. Just follow the directions on the bag and move to the next step. The crust below is actualy a biscuit mix you just have to add milk and mix together.
Step 4: Finish
To finish putting together your upsidedown pizza just spread the crust to fit over the top of your mug and an inch or two over the lip. Make sure it is semi-even and they're are no holes in it. Also if you are making this with more peole make sure you leave enough for them to make their crust. Remember that tip i said i would give you, here it is. If you have all the same mugs put a topping on the crusts after it is on the mug. (example: mine has a piece of meat on the crust, my brother's has nothing, and my dad's has an onion)
Step 5: Bake
Make sure the oven is pre- heated to 350 degrees. Next put all of the mugs onto a cookie sheet and stick them in there. Leave them in there for about 25 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown. You might need to adjust the time if your mugs are thicker.
Step 6: Enjoy
Once out of the oven let it cool down for a minute then very carefully use a pot holder to tip your mug upsidedown over your plate. Use your fork to scrape and push the crust off like this. You see why it was important to greese the cup? Now take just a second to admire your very own personalized deep dish pizza. Then eat and enjoy.
