I like pizza. But I'm picky. Making real pizza at home just doesn't do it for me. Deep dish though, I can totally do at home. Love this recipe.

What you will need

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp sugar

1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast

170g warm water

60 g yellow cornmeal

220 g AP flour

28 oz tomato sauce

12 oz mozzarella

Whatever toppings you want

How to cook

1

Salt yeast sugar water

Dissolve salt, yeast and sugar in warm water. Stir in the flour and cornmeal.

2

Knead the dough in the bowl until it comes together in a smooth ball.

Preheat oven to highest temperature. Grease up a baking dish. 2x 12" springform pans here, but one big cast iron works great too.

Add the toppings. Mozzarella first, then add any ingredients that you don't want burned (basil, etc.). Spread some tomato sauce over that. Add any ingredients that you do want to crisp up a bit. (Sausage, pepperoni, etc.)
