New Food Friday #8 -Chicago Style Garlic and Butter Pizza Crust

Welcome to New Food Friday- hope everyone has an exciting weekend planned. I am going to a craft fair with my mother in law- so excited!! This week's New Food Friday was awesome- seriously so good- you should try it!

I found the recipe here. I followed the instuctions pretty closely, but did a few things different. The dough in this pizza was amazing, flavorful and soft! It was very filling though, but so good!

Chicago Style Garlic and Butter Pizza Crust-
1 package Active Dry Yeast
1 1/4 cup lukewarm water
3 1/4 cup flour (plus more for dusting)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 clove garlic minced

2  15 oz. cans tomato sauce
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp minced onion

Toppings- Whatever you want, I used:
Cheddar Cheese
Mozzerella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese
Red Onion
Green Pepper
Bacon Bits

In large bowl dissolve yeast into 1/4 cup lukewarm water.
Add 1/4 cup flour and sugar and stir together.
Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place- 20 minutes.
Stir in the remaining water, flour, cornmeal and salt.
Combine the butter and garlic- mix into the dough mixture.
Turn out onto floured workspace and knead until soft and elastive- 10-12 minutes.
Place in greased bowl and cover. Let rise for 1 hour.
Punch down dough- knead for 2-3 minutes.
Grease 9X13 inch baking pan- I used glass.
Roll out dough with rolling pin and lay in dish- bring it about 2 inches up edge of pan.
Let rise for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Top the dough with sauce- you may not use all of the 2 cans, but be generous with the sauce.
Add toppings.
Turn oven to 450 degrees- bake for 30 minutes.

Minus the olives, that looks amazing Zoe!! I love home made deep dish pizza. I've been tempted to make my own pizza crust someday - usually I get the pre packaged ones to save time. But I bet a made from scratch crust tastes amazing :)

Toni said...

That looks so good! I'm going to have to try that crust recipe. It has been too long since I've made pizza! Thanks!

Hopped over here from the TT&J Link Party. This looks delicious! My fiance's sister lives in Chicago and has been raving about Chicago deep-dish style pizza. We live in Ohio and I've never had it, but now I can at least try my hand at making my own :) I can't wait to try this out! Thanks for sharing!

WOW, this pizza looks amazing. I'm italian and I usually make pizza at home every week. But I have to say I always prefer mozzarella, tomato sauce and some basil. Simply that!
The dough seem to be very tasty and soft!
