Deep Dish Pizza


1 Package yeast

1 Cup warm water

1 Teaspoon sugar, (optional)

1 Teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoons oil

3 to 3 1/2 Cups flour

 1 Large jar spaghetti sauce 

Tip:  I use leftover homemade spaghetti sauce instead of the jar of spaghetti sauce.  I add more Italian spices to the sauce (garlic, basil, parsley, oregano, and thyme) to it to make it really spicy.  I sometimes add these spices along with rosemary to the dough. 



Dissolve yeast in water.  Stir in sugar, salt, oil and 2 cups flour.  Beat until smooth.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.  Turn dough onto floured surface.  Knead 5 minutes.  Place in greased bowl.  Cover and let rise 45 minutes.  Dough is ready if indention remains when touched.  Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease two oblong pans, punch dough down. 


Divide dough and spread into pans, top with sauce and any of the following toppings:



black olives

Canadian bacon 

Jalapeno peppers


artichoke hearts

sliced onions 


fresh mushrooms (sautéed) 


green peppers 

fresh steamed Spinach (drained)

fresh sliced tomatoes 


mozzarella cheese 

yellow summer squash

Mom's Italian Spaghetti Sauce

This is a recipe for an Italian meat sauce that simmers for several hours before it is ready to serve.  We serve the spaghetti topped with fresh parmesan cheese, and sometimes sautéed fresh mushrooms. A crisp salad and a loaf of garlic bread hot out of the oven is all you need for this family pleasing meal!
