United States – Deep Dish Pizza Recipe

Ingredients for the dough

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 standard yeast packet
  • 1 Teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cups white flour
  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt

Ingredients for tomato sauce

  • 13 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion
  • Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 ½ oz sausages
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


Combine the flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, and yeast in the bowl. Slowly, add the warm water and 1/2 cup of melted butter. Beat the dough until it is soft. Form the dough into a ball, mix it with olive oil, cover it with a towel and let it rest for 1 hour.

Place butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add the grated onion, salt, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Add tomatoes and turn the heat down to low-medium.


After the dough ball have risen roll it out on a lightly floured work surface. Press the dough into our Happy Day® container and fill the pizza with mozzarella cheese, sausage and tomato sauce. Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 419F preheated oven. Remove the pizza from the oven and add grated parmesan cheese.
