Birthday Deep Dish Pizza

I've been reading all of these deep dish threads, so I thought I'd give it a try for my birthday dinner. I made 2 pies. The uncooked pie is the first pie. It turned out great, but I learned a valuable lesson. When you take it put of the pan with a spatula, don't look under it while balancing it on the spatula. The result = an upside-down pie on the counter. She was a beauty too. (we still ate it).

The second pie hasn't even been cut into. These things are filling! The crust turned out better on the second one. The first one was done with the PS legs up with the grate on top. The crust got a little dark on the bottom. For the second pie, I put my half moon grid on top of my grate. The result was a perfect crust.

    Happy birthday!. Nice looking pies. Looks like from that 4th picture that you got a good "Cheese Gasket" on the side of it.

  • I cooked them at 600. I think I'll back it down to 550 the next time. I think the top won't brown up as much that way.
