Deep Dish Pizza

Today I’m bringing you another one of my favorite super easy, quick to throw together, family pleasing, and incredibly delicious meals, originally from mother’s recipe collection. One of the best things about it is how incredibly adaptable it is to whatever ingredients you have on hand. I’ve made it with absolutely no cheese before and it was still delicious!

This recipe is a testament to just how many family recipes we have. I have an original family cookbook that I made about ten years ago which lists where every recipe came from along with any notes I’ve collected about it, so I use it as a reference when writing my columns. I have been bragging to my mother about how delicious this is for ages and telling her that she MUST make it soon! I finally got her intrigued enough to ask for the recipe and she bought all of the ingredients yesterday saying “That does sound good, I’ll have to try that this week.” This morning when I went to my original cookbook to see where the recipe came from originally, I found out it was hers! We both had a good laugh over that one.

Now I know why it tastes so familiar and where I’ve had it before. I remember having this when I was a little girl but I guess Mama got busy with other recipes and busy work and it eventually faded into the background. I do hope you get a chance to try it soon and help me revive this classic.

For all of my readers with hungry men and teenage boys to feed, get ready for a home run with Deep Dish Pizza!
