Making homemade pizza is a wonderful way to get your family involved with mealtime. Multiple tasks, like rolling the dough into the pan, shredding cheese, spreading sauce and placing toppings allow even the youngest children to take part. I personally love knowing the exact ingredients being used on my pizza. Experimenting is fun, too. Although my family is fan to the classic cheese pizza, wouldn’t it be neat to divide a pizza into quarters and try unusual combinations…..turkey & cheese, taco, BLT???
Harold Import Company has given me the opportunity to create a new type of pizza at home, not with toppings, but with pie style. Their Fante’s Cousin Serafina’s Deep Dish Pizza Pan created a delicious thicker crust and deeper bottom to support extra cheese and toppings.

Cousin Serafina’s Deep Dish Pizza Pan is made of heavy weight stainless steel making it durable for baking, cutting pizza slices in and for longevity of use. There is a dot texture in the bottom of the pan that stopped my pizza from sticking to the pan and also made it easy to clean later.
I cheated a little and bought my pizza dough at a local gourmet grocery. If you haven’t done this, I highly suggest it; just ask at the counter where bread is made. For $1.99 I couldn’t beat the price and it saves time (…..no messing up the yeast or waiting for it to rise). I used my EVO oil sprayer to spray a tiny bit of olive oil in the pan then pressed my dough in place. After adding sauce and lots of mozzarella and parmesan it was ready to bake. 25 minutes later, when the crust started pulling from the sides of the pan and the cheese was bubbly I pulled my pizza out of the oven. Just a few minutes of cooling and we were ready to eat! Delizioso!! I loved the heartier taste of the deep dish Style.
