If you love take out Deep Dish Pizza, you need to try this homemade deep dish pizza recipe. It’s easy so easy to make your own at home and the kids can personalize them with their favorite toppings.
My family had our first taste of deep dish pizza years ago when we went on a trip to Disney World. We got into town late and we were all starving. The only restaurant near our hotel that was open was a Pizza Hut.
We ordered a pan pizza, their yummy deep dish pizza, and I remember it being the most delicious thing I had ever eaten. Now it could have been that I was ABSOLUTELY STARVING and anything would have tasted good, but ever since then I have had an affection for deep dish pizza.
After we got home, I found a recipe for Pizza Hut Deep Dish Pizza online and I knew we had to try it. With a few modifications to the pizza recipe, it was a huge hit! The entire family loved it and the three pizzas feed us all with some left over.
Make Your Own Pizza
The recipe makes three 8 inch pizzas. You always have to have leftovers when pizza is involved! My favorite topping is sausage and black olive but pepperoni is my husband’s favorite. One of the things that makes the crust so yummy is olive oil. You are going to heavily coat your pan with olive oil and then add the dough. Don’t skimp on the olive oil. It makes the crust super yummy. Let the dough rise until doubled, about an hour or so.
After the crust has risen, add your pizza sauce, your favorite toppings and cheese. You can buy store bought pizza sauce but it is so easy to make your own. Use this homemade pizza sauce recipe. Leave about an inch of crust uncovered around the edges. Bake them for about 12-15 minutes.
We all love olives on our pepperoni pizza too? What’s your favorite pizza topping? Are you a thin crust or a pan crust fan?

Some of my favorite kitchen tools I use to make DEEP DISH PIZZA:
8 inch CAKE PANS -This are perfect for a layer cake or deep dish pizza. I own three of them.
9 x 13 GLASS PAN – I actually own three of these and they seem to be in constant use.
FRENCH ROLLING PIN– I love this thing. There are no handles to get in the way. Just use the palms of your hands on the ends. Just like the French!
