I will get pictures of my pizza fatta tonight. difficult to do on the phone.

did a cicilian style red sauce and fresh mozz (over did the mozz and it got a little soggy in the middle but was better after it drained a bit) hald with mixed olives, Wild mushrooms in cream sauce with parmesan cheese, Wild mushrooms with purple basil/almond pesto and stanislau capra aged goat cheese. and finally mixed olives with purple basil/almond pesto and stanislau capra.

had a bit of dough left over after all the toppings and cheese was gone so minced up some freesh herbs from the garden and did one with just olive oil, fresh herbs kosher salt and coarse black pepper.

Pictures to follow.

as promised,



Pesto with Wild mushrooms (chanterelle, lions mane, porcini, and Hen of the Woods)
Pesto with mixed olives,
and plain fresh herb focaccia

some of the herbs in the pesto and the herbs on the focaccia came from the garden.



Cicilian style thick crust with Fresh mozz, and mixed olives.

The tomatoes came from the garden here.

Man that looks delicious. I love Sicilian-style which is basically focaccia as a pizza. Easy to handle too! I'm waiting for my tomatoes to start turning so they can be picked and ripened!

Made this Deep Dish Pizza for an Old English Ale brew session in May. Recipe from America's Test Kitchen 2011 book..  The dough and the sauce recipe are pretty tasty... Used spring formed pans to make it easier to take the pizzas out when they were done.

Nice looking Chicago pies!

Last night I made four NY-style doughs for family that will be arriving today.  I'll try to remember to post pics for some pizza porn.   :P

Great looking Chicago-style pies! Almost unheard of down here...

Interesting oven Phil. I'm intrigued as to how well it works.

I'll take 3...lol  Some pretty neat stuff on the kickstarter site. I first heard about it when I was checking out the beer bug project (Digital Hydrometer).

I give you that it is a pie of sorts. ;)  With tomato sauce and cheese, but..........  Well, I'll give you that they even taste pretty good.

Some definitions.  :)

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pizza

I think the name Chicago Deep Dish Pizza is  refined well enough.  :)
