Reviews for Deep-Dish Pizza
"The crust on this is excellent and simple! We weren't really blown away by the sauce and will just use pizza sauce next time, but otherwise this is a major keeper! The kids ate every bite and told me to make it again (ages 5 and 3). The only thing I did different is I used a whole brick of mozzarella cheese on top and after it was done baking, I buttered the edges of the crust with 2Tbs melted Butter, 1/4 tsp Garlic Salt, 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder, and 1/4 tsp Parsley. Just for a tasty seasoned crust."
"I have to admit i was a little afraid my kids won't like it but they really did..they eat every bite!!!! The only thing I left out was the mushrooms."
"This is the best pizza recipe that I've tried.My husband gave me a thumbs up & he's not a fan of pizza!!Thanks TOH"

"This was a fabulous pizza. "
"FarmPrincess, deep dish pizza traditionally has a thick crust! I love the crust that way! If you want thinner crust, just make it in a larger pan."
