Easy 15 Minute Homemade Deep Dish Pizza

This pizza will make you throw away your take out menu and get you in the kitchen for sure! It is so simple and so inexpensive that even Pizza Hut’s $10 any pizza won’t entice you anymore. Finally a homemade pizza that actually does compare to the restaurants.

What you need: 

  • 1 package of pizza dough mix (Walmart- 52¢!! why have I not tried this stuff way before now?)
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 – 9-10 inch pie plate, cake pan or oven safe skillet
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Desired toppings
  • *Sauce tip-  so when I decided to make these, I realized I had literally no sauce. Not even pasta sauce. I was bumming. Until I saw a can of Italian style diced tomatoes.  OK! Open it up, dump it into the blender, add a little olive oil, pinch of salt & pepper, a little garlic powder (or fresh). Blend. Done.   Hubby said I need to make the sauce like that from now on.  It was FANTASTIC.

What to do: 

Preheat the oven to 425°

In a medium bowl, mix the hot water with the package of pizza dough mix. Work it until a soft dough ball.  Let sit and rest for about 5 mins.

Grease your desired pan or dish with butter then drizzle with olive oil (not necessary if you don’t have it, fine)

Press the dough into the dish. Bring it slightly up the sides.

Spread the sauce, cheese and toppings.  Bake for about 15-20mins.  or until golden brown edges appear.

*CHEESE TIP-  Sprinkle cheese heavier around the edges, when cheese melts on a pizza it gradually makes it’s way to the middle.  This way you won’t have edges with no cheese!
