You don't have to be in Chicago to get delicious deep-dish flavor. My recipe makes it easy, using frozen bread dough. Load it with your favorite toppings, and keep a knife and fork handy. —Jenny Leighty, West Salem, Ohio

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup mild pickled pepper rings
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano


  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 14x10-in. rectangle. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Build up edges slightly.
  2. Spread sauce over crust. Layer with remaining ingredients.
  3. Bake at 400° until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted, 25-30 minutes.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Be patient when rolling out frozen bread dough. The dough is quite elastic and will not want to hold its shape, but it will! Consider letting the dough rest for 10 minutes, covered, halfway through rolling.
