Deep Dish Pizza


Pizza is a staple at our house.  I feel like it is one of the few meals that no one complains about what we are eating.  Most meals  someone is unhappy with the outcome of my hard work but when I make this it is quite at our dinner table.  I have spent my motherhood years searching for a good dough recipe that I love and this is one one of them.  It is pure comfort food and great pizza for the entire family.  This is one thing that you can now make at home and feel like you just went out to a restaurant!

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/3 cup warm water
1/4 cup non-fat dry milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
31/2-4 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 package dry yeast
2 tablespoons vegetable oil 
vegetable oil 

Sauce
1 can (8 ounce size) tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry oregano
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon dry basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt


PREPARATION:

Put yeast, sugar, salt, and dry milk in a large (2 qt.) bowl. Add water and stir to mix well. Allow to sit for two minutes. Add oil and stir again. Add flour slowly and stir until dough forms and flour is absorbed. 

Turn out on to a flat surface and knead for about 10 minutes. Divide dough into three balls. In three 9" cake pans, put 2 TBS. of oil in each making sure it is spread evenly. Using a rolling pin, roll out each dough ball to about a 9" circle. Place in cake pans. 

 Cover with a towel. Place in warm area and allow to rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. 

Sauce: Combine ingredients and let sit for 1 hour. 

For Each Nine Inch Pizza: Preheat oven to 475 degrees F Spoon 1/3 cup sauce on dough and spread to within 1" of edge. Distribute 1 1/2 Oz. shredded mozzarella cheese on sauce. Place toppings of your choice on top of the cheese and then top with more mozzarella cheese. Cook until cheese is bubbling and outer crust is brown.
