Deep Dish Pizza with Cheese-Filled Crust

If you love pizza, if you are one of those people who can eat pizza all-day every-day, and if you believe that pizza is the best food ever invented, then this is for you!

I make pizza every week for my family, but today I wanted to take my pizza to the next level.  Pizza is so easy to experiment with.  The list of toppings is endless, an array of cheeses and sauces. Then there is the thickness of the crust…

When I pulled this pizza out of the oven even I was amazed!


4 ½ cups organic non-bleached all-purpose flour

2 cups warm water

4 ½ teaspoons yeast

1 teaspoon sea salt 

2 cups Daiya mozzerala cheese

1 ½ cups for the crust and ½ cup for the topping

½ cup chili sauce (Organicville)

Assorted toppings


In the bowl of your stand mixer, add yeast and warm water; let sit 5 minutes.

Add 2 cups flour and salt and mix on medium speed for 1 minutes.  Add remaining 2 ½ cups flour.  Continue mixing for 3 minutes.  The dough should come clean from the bowl while mixing; you can add more flour if needed 2 tablespoon at a time. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let rise 1 hour. Lighlty butter a cast iron skillet.  Remove the dough from the bowl and place in skillet.  Using your hands spread out the dough while also pushing the dough up the sides.

Place the cheese around the edges.  Fold over the edges while at the same time pulling the dough back up the sides.

Spread out the sauce; add cheese and your toppings.

Hiya! Was wondering if you could help me - I'm on a special diet and can't eat anything with gluten and/or sugar, as well as artificial preservatives. I've had a look at a lot of vegan/gluten free blogs but most of the recipes are for treats and deserts. Do you have anything that is main/dinner based?

Check out this gluten free post I responded to which includes main/dinner recipes (amongst many other types of gluten free recipes). Here is a list of gluten free main/dinner recipes I’ve posted since compiling that previous list. Enjoy!
