Resurrecting Chicago Deep Dish - Need Advise
« on: April 11, 2014, 06:53:10 PM »
So by hook 'n crook, a relative managed to sneak a few pies to me here in Japan.  I don't know which place she got them from, but they're your standard sausage deep dish.  She said they were half-cooked and then flash frozen (they're still frozen, managed to stay that way, and are in my deep freezer) and she said she wasn't sure about finishing the product, so I figured I would ask the experts.

What's the best way to bring these bad boys to life?  What temp/time should I set the old oven for?

Yes, I'm a newb but I have to learn how or I'm never going to have a quality pizza again.  Thanks in advance.

Instructions below from TastesOfChicago.com :

In addition to their instructions:
I would spray a little water on top of the sauce (because it likely lost some in the freezing process,
and put a loose sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil over the top of the pizza to keep the tops of the crust from burning.
Baking time? With a preheated oven, probably about 30 to 40 minutes from a frozen state.

If all else fails, you could just try making your own.  :chef:
