Chicago-style pizza

Deep-dish pizza is made easier with store-bought dough for the crust. It takes a little longer than traditional pizza but it’s worth the time.


1 can crescent rolls

1 1/2 cup pizza sauce

1 1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese

1 cup toppings such as cherry tomatoes, eggplant, pepperoni, pineapple, onion etc.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a cast iron or round baking dish with cooking spray. Press dough down into the pan and up around the sides about 1 inch. Sprinkle in 1/2 the cheese, followed by the vegetable then sauce. Top with remaining cheese. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese and sauce are bubbly. Let rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
