Whenever we're in Chicago, our trip isn't complete until we indulge in a traditional Chicago-style pizza. Since we can't get enough of it, we came up with this Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza!
What You'll Need
- 1 pound hot Italian sausage, casings removed (see Note)
- 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 pound store-bought pizza dough
- 3/4 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
- 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a 12-inch deep-dish pizza pan with cooking spray.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, pepper, and onion 6 to 8 minutes, or until no pink remains in sausage and vegetables are tender, stirring constantly; drain and set aside.
- Using your fingertips or heel of your hand, spread dough so it covers bottom of pan and comes three-quarters of the way up sides. Spread spaghetti sauce over dough; top with sausage mixture, then cheese.
- Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is crisp and brown. Cut and serve.
Just a Suggestion!
- Not crazy about the hot stuff? Use a milder sausage for the same super Chicago taste.
