Tomato and Garlic Deep Dish Pizza

Recipe: Tomato and Garlic Deep Dish Pizza


For the dough:

  • 16 oz all purpose flour
  • 1 package of fast acting yeast
  • 1 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 6 oz skim milk, warmed
  • Cooking spray

For the Filling:

  • 1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp red pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 cup Romano mixed with 2 Tbs of dried oregano
  • 2-3 large tomatoes sliced ¼ thick
  • 7 garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • 6 slices of provolone cheese



To prepare the dough:
In a cup dissolve the yeast in with the warmed milk In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and the milk with the yeast, the 2 beaten eggs and oil. Knead for 5 minutes. If needed, add a small amount of warm water as needed to bring the dough together in the bowl. The dough should be firm now, spray the dough with cooking spray, cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce and topping. In a medium bowl combine the crushed tomatoes, black and rep pepper, salt, garlic powder, and dried basil.

After 1 hour separate dough into 2 portions to make 2 deep crusts. On a lightly flour surface roll out to line a 10-12 inch deep pan. Press the crust firmly into the pan and up the sides.

Line the bottom of the both pans with 3 slices of provolone cheese each. Then add a few slices of tomatoes and garlic slices to each pan. Add the tomato mixture. On top of the tomato mixture add a few more slices of garlic and tomatoes to each pan. Then top both pans with the Romano/Oregano mixture.

Place the pies in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes

  1. I’ve been watching your recipe come through. Thank you for using hRecipe. I really appreciate it.

    Hit me up next week, I’d like to show you a few things that might help your overall blogging.

    • Thanks for watching. As apparent; we have no clue. I originally looked for a web site or program to create an online recipe book and had little luck. Having no programming skills or experience, I read Head First HTML and PHP & My SQL to have some basic understanding and here we are!

      Were just having fun and welcome your advice.

      P.S. have since stumbled across kitchenmonki, pretty cool site, some good ideas!

  2. Andi, you have something cool going on here.

    I am *crushed* through the next few days, but I’m about to roll into a little food blogging.

    Let’s connect on email.
