I haven’t tried to make many deep-dish pizzas, but I really love them.  I decided to make a deep-dish Birthday Cake for this challenge.

I used a yellow cake mix, for the deep-dish pie.  The deep-dish Birthday Cake was dressed with white chocolate shredded, ( to simulate cheese) fruit slices that were rolled with a rolling pin to create green peppers, parsley, pepperoni,  marshmallows rolled and cut with a scissors to simulate mushrooms and red Swedish fish to simulate anchovies.  The icing was just a basic butter cream icing that I added food coloring to simulate the tomato sauce.  I didn’t realize I didn’t have enough red food coloring so my tomato sauce is on the pink side.

Norma,

I agree with Tran. Out of curiosity, what hydration did you use to get such good oven spring  :-D?

Peter,

Thanks, it was just a box yellow cake that I added water, eggs and oil.  It was baked in a cake pan.  I just used more of the cake mix in one pan to get the deep-dish higher.  Do you want to figure out the hydration?   :-D

Left over slices?  Hmmm... wonder how well they would ship... 
I agree that looks awesome.
Norma you are so creative and adventurous I think you need a new handle.  Maybe Flour Ninja or Gluten Master or Pizzanator.  How about The Outlaw Norma's Scales?  OK this will take some thought but again you have stretched the doughy envelope.  I think yours is the first pizza with anchovies I would like!  Well done.

Hog,

Thanks for the compliment.  :) Sure I would like a new name..something more adventurous..I am happy you would eat this deep-dish with anchovies.   ;D

I guess it would ship okay, but don’t know how fresh it would taste.  You also wanted to send me something, so if I can help you in any way, let me know.

DKM,

Thanks, coming from one of the deep-dish masters on this forum, I appreciate your comment.  :) I do really enjoy regular deep-dish pizzas and have to get back to making one soon.

The birthday deep-dish pizza I made yesterday is fine today.  No need to heat it up.  Below is a picture of another slice.

I want to wish everyone on this forum, whether they are a moderator, member or guest a “Happy Birthday”, whenever their birthday is.

Our birthdays are like feathers which sway in the wings of our life time.

Hey everybody, it’s a fine, fine day,
And our celebration is underway,
At our Birthday Pizza Party,
You’re all sweet enough,
So we changed tradition,
And they’ll be no cake,
On this expedition,
We’ll have a Birthday Pizza Party,
Yes, a Birthday Pizza Party,
Forget the candles,
And dishin’ out little pieces,
The main course will be,
Individual pizzas,
At our Birthday Pizza Party,
Our Birthday Pizza Party,
It will be so much fun,
We’ll have a ‘feasta’,
While everyone’s eatin’,
Their birthday pizza,
At our Birthday Pizza Party,
Yes our Birthday Pizza Party,
Everybody sing it now,
“Birthday pizza to all,
On the street and in the mall,
It’s a wonderful party,
Birthday pizza to all”

A few songs to wish everyone a “Happy Birthday”.

Happy Birthday by: The Chipmunks



Funny birthday song by: The Beatles



And one of my all time favorite birthday songs for your mate by: Conway Twitty



Anyone remember when Show Biz Pizza then turned into Chuck E. Cheese Pizza?

Pizza Time Players at Chuck E. Cheese

Chuck E. Cheese singing Happy Birthday





My Pasqually 2009 - Birthday Extravaganza



Rock a- fire Explosion at Show Biz Pizza before Chuck E. Cheese Pizza when Billy Bob was there.



and behind the scenes to show how they made the characters worked for Show Biz Pizza,  Interesting how the characters work. If you watch the other videos fanprograms uploaded, you can see how he programmed the characters for Show Biz Pizza

Since not too many members did a submission for this challenge, I decided to another one this morning.  This is not a sweet one, like my last submission.  It is more like the “staff of life”, but a pizza.  This “Birthday Pizza” only has earth colors.

I was surprised no one answered my question in my lost post.  Hasn’t anyone heard of “Showtime Pizza”, with Billy Bob? 

It still isn’t too late to get your submission in for this challenge.  ;D
