Question: Is deep dish pizza even pizza? Answer: Who cares? Farideh celebrates Chicago’s cherished pie with a twist: a deep dish pizza baked in a cast iron pan. She starts by creating the pizza dough, made with active dry yeast, sugar, butter, cornmeal, all-purpose flour, and oil. After a quick deep dish pizza history lesson, Farideh moves on to creating a pizza sauce with garlic, onion, chili flakes, and crushed tomatoes. Next, she preps Italian sausage for the pizza topping, rolls out the pizza dough, and fits it into the cast iron pan. Finally, Farideh assembles the pizza by layering sliced mozzarella cheese, sauce, more cheese, sausage, more cheese, and more sauce, and bakes it in the oven. The result is a golden, crusty, melty pizza pie fit for a fork and knife.
