An experiment that turned out surprisingly well, though the crust stuck to the clay deep baking dish I used. Note that to prevent a really watery pizza, I used canned mushrooms, which I think "shed" less water. Ditto for the tomatoes -- Roma tomatoes are meatier.

Recipe Directions for Homemade Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza

Make dough according to package directions. Press into deep dish. (Note: You may want to oil the dish then dust with flour or cornmeal to prevent sticking.) Layer 6-8 ounced of mozzarella on the bottom, then the mushrooms (drain well), the thinly-sliced red onion, and the basil. Top with sauce and then tomato slices. Finally, top with rest of mozzarella, the parmesan, and the black olives. Bake in a VERY HOT oven (mine will only go to around 430 F, but 450 would be better) for 25-30 minutes.
