Secret of the deep dish cheese crust

Foil over the top for the last 10 mins.  What this does is the cheese boils up on the edges and doesn't burn.  If you've never had your crust this way it's a must.  When applying your sliced cheese put it half way up the sides.

I do this as a matter of course, just to give the edge some structure.  The cheese shores it up so that it doesn't shrivel back down into the pan during assembly.

Do it up Bob.  Lately I've been doing it with 205g total flour (15g semolina) for the crust and baking at 475.  Now I'm full after 2 slices.
