    Fantastic looking pie. Do you deliver in 20 minutes or less?

    Looks good.  Have you done any on CI?  I just wondered if you could give us a comparison if you have.

    Thx, guys! @Eggucator, nope, I've never done deep dish on cast iron. I would imagine that is great too! :)

    Looks awesome, Dyal! And quicker/easier than a standard pie too.

    RickyBobby, a steel cake pan is just fine. No ceramic needed.

  • Nicely done!  Great minds think alike:  we did one tonight, too.

    I have made deep dish in cast iron before and it turned out very well. I put the pan on the pizza stone and cooked it until done. I think it took about 40-45 mins at about 400ish. 
  • @Eggucator:  I also do my deep dish in cast iron.  30 minutes at 450-500*F (PS legs down, spacer, stone, pan) with a 180* turn halfway through.  Posted results just a bit ago.

    @Hibby , that is the BGE deep dish pizza ceramic stone.

    @njl , I used the time and temp per BGE's recipe, and also the King Artur flour recipe for the pizza dough

    Speaking from personal experience, that is one great pizza and pizza dough recipe and you knocked it out of the park! Very nice. 

    As for the cast iron vs. ceramic pan, there is going to be a difference. The ceramic is porous and is ging to draw some of the moisture off the surface of the dough. This will make the surface of the crust crispier. Whether it is better I will leave for others to decide. But they will differ somewhat.

    Thx fellas'! @jfm0830, you are right about the crust being crispier. The ceramic stone causes the bottom to be almost crunchy. Good though. :) Might hafta use my CI skillet next time for a comparison.
