Deep Dish Pan Pizza

Recommended Posts

Nice vid, and great results! I would have liked to see the crust after all was said and done, but it was buried under about 2" of cheese. I love cheese, but that seemed like a bit much. Great use of a CI pan, and I look forward to more vids from the kitchen at Lake IWTBT!

Good video.Seemed like to much cheese.I would put the pepperoni right on top of the sausage and cut out the middle cheese layer.Pizza is finger food,not fork food.

Also pizza crusts are tough if you don't let it rise for an hour and punch it down.

I think that the post title is a little misleading, as it's not a deep dish pizza but just pizza made in a cast iron (deep dish) pan. The gentleman did a good job and I have no doubt from the size of his hands and the amount of cheese, that he's from Wisconsin!

Awesome vid. Gonna have to try making a pizza in my fish fry pan. With the 75-100 fish fries I've had in there (and 10-15 pckgs of bacon), won't my pizza taste like fish with hints of bacon? Mmmm, maybe not a bad thing? Bobby Bass, approximately where in the great midwest is "LakeIwannabeThere"? Minny, 'Sconi?

Here's my deep dish recipe that I've been working on this winter. It will make a reasonably thick crust for a 14-16" pie.

Flieshmans Rapid Rise Yeast packet

1 cup of water

1/2 tsp sugar

2.5 cups flour

garlic powder

Italian seasoning

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp butter

Heat up 1 cup of water in a glass cup (I use a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup to allow for yeast to expand). I zap it in the microwave for about 40 seconds to get the water nice and warm. Thoroughly mix in the 1/2 tsp of sugar. Add the yeast packet and gently mix it up. Set the timer for 10 minutes to get those yeast cells working. It should have a 1/2" thick krauesen layer on top.

While you are waiting for that, mix up the 2.5 cups of flour, 2 Tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tsp of salt. I like to add garlic powder and Italian seasoning to taste, cooks discretion of course. Once the yeast is ready, mix it up and dump it in. Start mixing it up. Add some flour as you are doing this to keep it from sticking (~ another 1/4 cup?). Knead the dough for 8 minutes (greatly helps if you are drinking beer here). Form into a ball. Place ball into bowl and cover outside with 1 tbsp of melted butter. Cover and place on top of pre-warmed oven for 30 minutes. Then punch down the risen dough with your fist. Reform into ball and wait another 5 minutes.

Your dough is now ready. Make the pizza with your toppings of choice. I like to put the dough on a pizza stone, as this avoids adding a bunch more butter to the recipe. Cook for 16-19 minutes at 450 F. Enjoy!

Can there ever be to much cheese? Haha Mama likes thin crust pizza and we make that to but every now and then I like a big pie that you have to eat with a fork and I want to taste cheese and meat with every bite. This is the kind of pizza that you have one piece not half the pie to get filled. Just wanted to point out that the ole fish fry pan should not sit lonely but can do other things beside cook a couple of pounds of bacon and a dozen eggs. Thanks for all the tips as I always try to improve, gives me an excuse to make an other pie!

you started out slow with the little sauce and then the slices and then a little sprikle with cheese and then a little sauce[and i thought "where is all the good stuff"] and then you started to pile it on and i said "now your talkin". did a fine job. of course everyone likes different toppings but the cheese is the key in the blend. good luck.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
