CHICAGO STYLE DEEP DISH PIZZA

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup water
  •  teaspoons yeast
  • 3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer mix water and yeast and let rest a few minutes until it begins to form bubbles. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix on low for about 1 minute to fully mix the ingredients together. Turn the speed to 2 and let it mix for 2-3 minutes. The dough should be smooth at this point. Cover with plastic and let rest until about doubled in volume.
  • When the dough has risen fold dough onto itself, cover with plastic again and let rise for about another hour until doubled again.
  • For a 12 inch pan use a large grapefruit size dough and use the rest for another small pizza. Use the entire recipe if making a 14 inch pizza. Spread out the dough until it covers the bottom of the pan then begin pulling the dough up the sides. Cover with plastic and let rest for about 30 minutes while oven is preheating to 475 degrees.
  • After the rest press dough into corners of pan again and pull dough up the side of the pan to form a thin crust. Prick with a fork several times in the bottom and par bake for 4 minutes. After baking arrange thin slices of mozzarella cheese on the bottom, top with any other ingredients (if using) then ladle on sauce to cover. Sprinkle freshly grates Parmesan cheese over sauce and bake on lower third of oven for 25-30 minutes until crust is golden brown.
  • Let rest for a few minutes before eating. It will be very hot.
