In case you missed it: The Chicago Blackhawks Deep Dish Pizza!

If you haven’t seen it on the Real Deep Dish Facebook Page, Here’s the Chicago Blackhawks Deep Dish Pizza I made just for fun! And then a few weeks later, they won the STANLEY CUP! You’re welcome. What did I use? : black olives, mini sweet peppers for the feathers and lines, along with peccorino and dried parsley for the white and green, shredded sharp cheddar for the face. Under the sauce? Hot Italian Sausage and Pepperoni with Whole Milk Mozzarella. and the leftovers reheated quite nicely! When you buy great items like this Deep Dish Pan, you are supporting this website. Thank You!

DD101 Extra: A Quick Post About Deep Dish Pizza

A QUICK POST ABOUT DEEP DISH PIZZA: DOUGH: SHORT-KNEAD, LESS GLUTEN. MORE OIL THAN A TYPICAL PIZZA DOUGH. DO NOT TOSS IT IN THE AIR. PRESS OUT FLAT TO THE EDGE. PINCH UP A THIN LIP ALL THE WAY AROUND. NO FRIGGIN CORN MEAL! CHEESE: LOW MOISTURE MOZZARELLA. SLICED, NOT SHREDDED. GOES ON THE BOTTOM. OVERLAP THE SLICES TO COVER. The only cheese that breaks the “on the bottom” rule is a light sprinkle of grated Romano/Parmesan on top of the tomatoes. SAUCE: CANNED CRUSHED TOMATOES. TASTE THEM BEFORE YOU USE THEM. DRAIN IF NECESSARY – DO NOT PRE-COOK. GOES ON THE TOP. KEEPS THE CHEESE FROM BURNING. COMPLETELY COVER THE PIZZA. DON’T OVERDO IT.
