First successful Deep Dish
« on: February 17, 2013, 10:12:32 PM »
I followed the recipe for 9" Deep Dish at www.realdeepdish.com (the Holy Grail recipe)

Tomatoes were Muir Glen Organic Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes (well drained), with garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano, black pepper, and sugar mixed in and smoothed out a bit with an immersion blender.

Sausage was Johnsonville Italian sweet as a patty in the middle.

I forgot to substitute about 15-20% semolina for the KABF, but it came out pretty good anyways.  Nice crunch on the outer crust, but not rock-hard

Anyways... here are some pics...

That looks GREAT!

I gave up buying things for Lent, so I will have to wait until Easter to buy my first deep dish pan. Until then I wil just have to satisfy myself with good looking pics like yours. :pizza:

FYI Chicago Bob just turned me on to the Premio Italian sausage which I can buy for 1.99/lb or so at our local Costco. Had it last night and it it VERY, very good.

What beer did you serve with that?

I'll take a growler-full of that IPA please! :)

On second thought, a growler of each please!!

Have you used any of your brewing yeast to make pizza?

Tasty lookin' pie!  :pizza:

You might also think about making your own italian sausage. It's not really that hard to do, especially if you just add spices to some store bought ground pork.

John K.;
This past weekend I was at our local thrift store/bargain store, junk store, whatever you want to call it. I found three 1.5-inch deep, dark colored pans (7, 10 and 12-inch diameter) for just $5.00. What a deal! If you have anything similar to one of these near you check it out. It sure beats paying retail, even at Walmart.
Ours is a pretty good size store with a lot of "stuff" so you never know what you're going to find, looking through it all is half of the fun. Over the years I've picked up an assortment of stainless steel mixing bowls, deep-dish pizza pan grippers, and several plastic containers for ingredient storage. If you or anyone ever attends the NAPICS show, in Columbus, Ohio, be sure to stop at the Restaurant Equippers booth, they have a lot of really neat stuff there too, and their prices are great to boot!

Tom,

Thank you for the tips and suggestions. I must politely remind you that I gave up buying things for Lent! Trust me when I tell you this is DIFFICULT for someone like me who has a chronic case of the "I wants"!! So I will resist the temptation >:D until Monday April 1st and then go again in search of such deals.

Thankfully, in the days leading up to Ash Wednesday I WAS able to purchase:

  • A 10 Ton Manual log splitter at Harbor Freight for 99 bucks
  • 2 10x14 and 4 8x8 Non-stick Calphalon pans (for DS pies) $5.99 each!!

Will post pics of said items later!

Regards,

John K
