- Or use a bread-maker.
- Heat oven to 400°.
- Coat the bottom of a well-seasoned 15x2" deep-dish pan (or a 15" cast-iron skillet) with olive oil.
- Place dough in the center of the pan and press it out until it covers the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
- Cover the dough with sliced cheese.
- Add whatever toppings you want. (Italian sausage is popular in Chicago.)
- Pour tomatoes on top and spread out.
- Add spices and grated parmesan cheese.
- Bake at 400° for 30-40 minutes.
