Stir It Up: Deep Dish Pizza

Posted: Updated:

Deep Dish Pizza

1 pound bread dough

1 pound Italian sausage

2 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

2 teaspoon canola oil

1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

1 small sweet onion chopped

1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, well drained

3/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased 9 by 13 baking dish. You will have to stretch the dough carefully. Place the dough in the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes and remove from the oven. Cook the sausage in a large skillet, stirring until browned and crumbled. Be sure that the sausage is cooked through. With a slotted spoon sprinkle the cooked sausage over the partially cooked crust. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. In another skillet cook mushrooms and onions in the canola oil until onions are tender and the mushrooms have released their juices. Drain the tomatoes, patting with a paper towel.

Add tomatoes, oregano, salt, fennel seeds and garlic powder to the mushroom mixture. Spoon this mixture over the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top. Place back in preheated oven and bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until the crust is brown and the toppings are all melted and bubbly.
