Deep Dish Success

Made a deep dish pizza with a little help from @griffin's blog. Topping were cheese, cheese, more cheese, Italian sausage, peppers, red onion, and Furmano pizza sauce.

    I think my buddy, a new egghead, was about to have a food orgasm. Every bite had a moan and groan.

    Looks great!  Can you buy Furmano's in grocery stores in your area?  I don't believe I have seen it before.

    Somewhat random question- but does anyone have a trick for removing the pie from the CI skillet once it is cooked?  I manage to do it with a couple of spatulas and help from my wife...but it is a bit scary :).


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I use a thin, flexible, silicone-covered spatula. I have also seen devices specifically made for this purpose.

    Here is the specific spatula:

    I bought the sauce at Wally World. My local grocer also carries it.

    For removal, I used a wide metal spatula and then came under the other side with my grill spatula. Had the stone right next to the pie, so removal was quick.

    Cooked at 450 for 35 minutes. Platesetter legs down with spacers between skillet and platesetter. Sorry, couldn't take pics of sliced piece. The family and guests were hungry. It looked just like the sliced pieces on Griffin's blog.

    @SmokeyPitt, I've had great success getting the pizza out of the pan by running a fork or regular (dinner style) knife around the outer edge, and then using the fork or knife to lever under and lift the pizza and slide it onto a cooling rack.

    I run a regular dinner knife all around the edge to make sure its not sticking and then use a thin spatula to get under it while tilting the CI Skillet. Sometimes two spatulas are needed.

    @SmokeyPitt No worries. You didn't highjack at all. These threads take on a natural progression.
