Info
I have made two other pizzas using this recipe (see links above) using the old 7" ceramic pizza pan. The recipe seems like a reverse engineering of a Pizzeria Uno style deep dish pizza. The recipe was actually written for the release of BGE's new 14" ceramic pizza pan/stone last Fall. I used my 7" pans and cut the ingredient quantity in half. I recently picked up the 14" version of the pan. I was already familiar with the basics of the recipe: Make the dough and let it rise for an hour, while waiting gather the ingredients and make the sauce, put the dough in the pan and bake on the Egg for 10 minutes to partially set the crust, and then finish filling the pizza with the sauce and toppings and bake for around 25 minutes. The pizza then comes off the Egg for 15 minutes to cool before serving. Just like the other pizza made using this recipes, this larger version turned out excellently. My parents both loved this pizza, they had never had a pizza from Pizzeria Uno before and they raved about the sauce and the buttery flavor of the crust. If you love deep dish pizza and own a Large or XL BGE, buy this pan and give this recipe a try. I think you will be amazed at the quality deep dish pizza you can turn out on your Egg.
