I crossed the line a couple of nights ago and made a stuffed pizza. Not quite deep-dish Chicago style, which was my intent, but we'll call it stuffed. For the purists out there, was it pizza?
No, more like a giant flat calzone. But, it looked like pizza, and tasted remarkably similar, considering the outcome, I was very satisfied. The reviewers said it was the best "pizza" I'd ever made.
Here's the deal in a nutshell. 18" pan, Dough on bottom, spinach, mozz., sauteed onion and garlic in the middle. Another layer of dough (D'oh!), homemade sauce and cheese on top.
Here's the pics.
A lttle overdone on the bottom, but! Overall I'd give it an 8 out of 10.
I surprised myself. It was a labor intensive pie, more of a weekend project, but well worth the work.
Would I do it again?
