Christmas Chicago Deep Dish
« on: December 25, 2011, 04:09:28 AM »
Merry Christmas everybody!!

Today was my first try ever at making pizzas at home. I consider it a big success. We made three Uno's style pizzas using Chris Gatto's how2heroes video as a recipe.  http://how2heroes.com/videos/dessert-and-baked-goods/deep-dish-pepperoni-pizza

The dough came out great...we'll invest in a gram scale to try and dial it in. Mutti Italian crushed tomatoes are available at the supermarket here in Thailand. They were reasonable at $2 a can. I'm embarrassed at how much I paid for the mozzarella.

Hope the pics post, I couldn't see them on the preview. We made three pizzas today. The first two were pepperoni and the last one was a Hawaiian for Grandpa's midnight snacks. The crust was just a little crispy, thick and biscuit-like. Most importantly, everybody ate a little too much and seemed to love the results.  :pizza:Thanks to Mr Gatto for making the video, and the folks on this site.  ;D

Oven was set to 475. I tripled the dough recipe and used 9" cake pans.

Mike, Nicely done pies. I use this free downloadable program to resize for the internet. Very easy to use.

Thanks guys. Very rewarding filling the house up with pizza aroma. I'm a noob with pictures, but hopefully I can learn to shrink them enough to attach them to my posts.
