Domino's old deep dish
« on: January 29, 2019, 03:44:25 PM »
I don't know how many people remember this pizza, but it was one of the best chain pizzas you could buy. Domino's introduced the deep dish variety in 1989. Unfortunately, they replaced it with "handmade pan" in 2012. Although the deep dish was a pan pizza too, it was always just called "deep dish." It was a tremendous downgrade when they moved on to the new handmade pan, as the two are nothing alike.

The old deep dish was special because of the unique crust. It was thick - about 1 inch. It had a deliciously tender crumb yet with a nice crispy edge from the pan. They baked it with plenty of herbed oil (some type of regular Italian seasoning) which made it even tastier, and resulted in a dark brown crust. The crust seemed to pair excellently with the oily cheese they used, too. It was a really good pie and to this day, even after having countless different pizzas, I've still not had anything quite like it.

Does anyone else remember this? I also wondered if anyone here has ever tried recreating it, though my searches have turned up nil. I did see a guy on YouTube tried to recreate it but it didn't look right to me. I grew up eating this and I would love to be able to make it, but I don't even know where to start since it has long been discontinued.
