Recipe Ingredients for Ginny's Deep Dish Pizza

2 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 package fast rising yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 c water, very warm
2 c part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 (15-ounce) diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp oregano
4 ounce mushrooms
1 onion, medium

Recipe Directions for Ginny's Deep Dish Pizza

  1. To make the crust, combine the yeast, salt, sugar, 1 cup of the flour, and the cup of warm water. Mix thoroughly. Since you aren't proofing the yeast first, the water needs to be a bit hotter than usual. Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead it for a few minutes, then put it back in the bowl, cover, and set aside to rise.

  2. In the meantime, prepare the veggies. Sauté the onions until caramelized. Break up the tomatoes slightly and set them in a sieve to drain. You don't want them soupy. Save the juice for something else.

  3. When the pizza dough has more or less doubled in bulk (usually in less than an hour—I find out don't need to be too technical with pizza dough), punch it down. Lightly spray a 10-inch spring form pan with cooking spray. Press the dough into the pan and up the sides. Spread the shredded cheese over the crust. Top with the tomatoes, which have been mixed with the basil leaves. Season with salt, oregano, and black pepper. Sprinkle the minced garlic over the tomatoes, then add the sauteed onions. Bake at 425°F in the middle of the oven for about 45 minutes or so. Since it's so thick, it takes quite awhile for the filling to heat all the way through. It makes a lovely presentation when you remove the ring from the spring form pan.

  4. You can vary the fillings as you like.
