ISO Chicago deep-dish pizza dough recipe

Saw a special on the food channel, actually i think it was a bobby flay throwdown about chicago pizza. They were saying that the dough should be flakey, buttery .....

Well, im planning on making a deep dish for tomorrow nights dinner. Anyone have a recipe for the dough of a chicago deep dish pie ???

Larry, have you tried searching the Food Network site for the dough recipe? Or a Google search?

If I remember correctly, there was an Emeril episode that featured Chicago deep-dish pizza. Just a thought.

This makes a wonderful Chicago Style pizza.
It tastes just like Uno's in downtown Chicago.
UNO'S PIZZERIA RECIPE

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Cheese/eggs

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 pk Yeast
2 c -Tepid water
1/2 c Salad oil
4 tb Olive oil
3 c Flour
1/2 c Cornmeal -- I think this is
-the secret
2 ts -salt -- Frugal Gourmet does
-not have salt in dough
2 1/2 c Flour
-Sauce
2 cn Plum tomatoes 28 ounce
-drained -- crushed; drained
1 Mozzarella -- to taste
1 pn -salt -- ground pepper
1 -garlic -- chopped; to taste
1 Basil -- fresh; chopped
1 Oregano -- fresh; chopped
1 Meat -- choice
1 Onion -- etc; choice
1 Parmesan -- to taste
1 Romano cheese -- to taste

Mix two packets of yeast in 2 cups of tepid water and let sit for ten
minutes. Add 1/2 cup salad oil. Add Olive oil, 3 cups flour; cornmeal
and salt. Knead for about ten minutes. Add 2-1/2 cups of additional flour.
Knead this for 15 minutes. Let dough rise to twice its size. Use blackened
deep dish pizza pans. I'm not sure how you get 'em blackened - I cured mine
with olive oil and then I just wipe them out when I'm
done. They are kind of getting blackened looking with use. I have two pans
and make two pizzas at a time. I spread the pan with olive oil and sprinkle
with cornmeal. Divide the dough in half. Spread and cover the bottom of the
pan. Spread it up the sides. I then let it rise again in the pan. Cover
pizza dough with sliced mozzarella. Drain and squash a 28 ounce can of plum
tomatoes for each pizza. Drain off the excess fluid after squashing, and
spread this over the cheese. Smidge of salt and ground pepper over the top.
Chopped garlic, fresh chopped basil and oregano. Add the filling of your
choice (I use sliced onion and Italian Sausage). Top with a Parmesan/Romano
Cheese mix. Bake in preheated oven at 475 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Here is a quick and easy one I have....


Deep-Dish Pizza Dough
- Makes 8 servings -
Ingredients
3-1/2 cups unbleached flour
1 package quick-rise active dry yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups warm water, 115 to 125F
2 teaspoons honey
1 Tablespoon olive oil
Directions
In large bowl of electric mixer, combine 2 1/2 cups of the flour, yeast, and salt. Stir to blend dry ingredients thoroughly. In a small bowl combine the hot water, honey, and oil. Stir to blend well. Add water mixture to flour mixture. Mix to blend, then beat at medium speed until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Stir in about 1/2 cup more flour to make a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead until dough is smooth and satiny (8 to 10 minutes), adding just enough flour (up to 1/2 cup) to prevent dough from being sticky. Turn dough into a greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a towel, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk (30 to 40 minutes). Punch dough down, cover with inverted bowl, and let rest 10 minutes; use as directed in recipe.

That's beautiful. Hope it tasted as good as it looked. I'm full, but now I want pizza.
