    Brilliant TJ!  I love the idea of the full crust.  Great idea and great execution!

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

  • Awesome looking pie.  You've now raised the bar pretty high for deep dish.

    What dough recipe did you use?

    What dough recipe did you use?
    I've had this a while.  I believe it was from the Food Network.  Original said to oil the pan with olive oil, but I've had better results with Crisco.  Usually put in fridge overnight, but this was last minute, so just let it rise for 3 hours in the bowl, then another hour or so in the pan.  Results were great.  If using an 11" pan, makes enough for 2.

    Chicago-style Deep Dish Pizza Dough

    1 1/2 cups warm water

    1/2 tablespoon active dry yeast

    1/2 tablespoon sugar

    3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1/2 cup semolina flour

    1/2 cup shortening

    1 teaspoon salt

     Mix water, yeast & sugar.  Let sit for 5 minutes

     Using dough hook on mixer add shortening, 2 cups of the AP flour and salt then mix for 5 minutes.  Add 1 more cup of AP flour and the semolina flour, mix until a dough ball is formed.  Add the remaining 1/2 of AP flour as needed.  Dough should be wet but shouldn't stick to your hands.

     Put in frig to rise over night.  Take out about 2 - 3 hours before use.

     Stabilize Egg to 500 degrees for at least 30 minutes before baking. Raised Indirect.

     Grease a deep dish pizza pan with Crisco. Pat out dough in the pan and top.

    Bake about 15 - 20 minutes.

    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    That looks tasty. I like all kinds of pizza especially deep dish. To me deep dish is true pizza pie with having a bottom crust stuff in the middle and a top crust. My in laws and wife love the greasy NY style stuff more. It's good, but I rather have deep dish. :P

    The bump of the post inspired me to make it again.  Double crust, stuffed with a layer of Provolone, a layer of sausage and a layer of mozza.  Topped with another crust, and when it started to brown, some sauce, parm cheese, oregano, and half pepperoni.  Great pizza.

    I have never been a fan of Chicago style stuffed pizza....until I saw yours!
    That looks great.  Now I may have to figure out how to make this.   You may have converted a thin crust advocate to try making a stuffed pizza.

    Looks amazing.  Can't wait to try this.  Atlanta needs a good deep dish restaurant.

    @rainey75, looks like your salt and pepper shakers are having a good time. May I suggest they get a room...
