  • 1-2 packages of your favorite pizza crust (homemade or store bought, 2 packages for spring form, 1 package for cast iron pan.)
  • Sauce –
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic
  • 1 28 oz can plum tomatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup onion (minced)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons red wine
  • Filling -
  • 1 lb Italian sausage (cooked)
  • 1 package pepperonis
  • 1 can sliced mushrooms
  • 1 onion (sliced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 lbs mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal



Step 1

To make pizza sauce – sauté garlic in olive oil for 30 seconds. Add canned plum tomatoes, tomato paste, minced onion, basic, oregano, salt, sugar and wine and mix well. Simmer for 20 minutes or until sauce thickens.
Step 2: Lightly grease a 10” inch spring form pan or a cast iron pan (I will be giving separate instructions for each).

Deep Dish Pizza with a Spring Form Pan -

Step 1: Roll out 3/4 of pizza dough in a flat circle so its 3-4 inches bigger than the spring form pan (all the way around). Place into spring form pan letting it overhang the edges.

Step 2: Spoon in half of the sauce, then the Italian sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, and onions. Top with half of the mozzarella cheese. Roll out remaining pizza dough and place on top of the filling. Crimp the edges together including the overlapping crust.

Step 3: Baking in the oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. After 25 minutes remove pizza from the oven and add remaining sauce and remaining cheese to the top half. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Let cool before cutting.
