Favorite Deep-Dish Pizza

My kids love to get pizza delivered, but it's expensive and not very healthy. I came up with a one-bowl pizza that is healthier than delivery and allows the kids to add the toppings of their choice. —Sara LaFountain, Rockville, Maryland

  • 1-3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Optional: Sliced red onion, chopped green pepper, fresh oregano and crushed red pepper flakes


  1. In a large bowl, combine wheat flour, 1 cup all-purpose flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add water and oil; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  2. Top with pizza sauce. Place mozzarella slices over sauce. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, oregano and Italian seasoning. If desired, top with red onion and green pepper. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. If desired, top with fresh oregano leaves and crushed red pepper flakes.
