I've never had success making my own pizza dough so I was a bit nervous about attempting this. But it all came out very well. My only change would be to bake it for an additional 5 minutes. The moisture of the mushroom/onion filling kept the inner crust too soft for our taste. But all in all, this was a huge success! Yes, time consuming but well worth it.
Really great pizza recipe. My husband never eats his crust and said he loved this crust. I replaced half of the white flour with whole wheat and sauteed Italian chicken sausage in with the veggies. Next time, I will just add the sauce in with the veggies to thicken the sauce a bit as it made the pizza a little soupy inside.
I followed the instructions exactly and ended up with a perfect deep dish pie. It was as delicious as it looked and surprising easy to make, although it was time consuming. Personally, I thought it well worth the time and will definitely make it again. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines: http://www.takingonmagazines.com/deep-dish-mushroom-onion-pizza/
