Ingredients

How to make it

  • Add all ingredients except oil to a mixing bowl and mix with a dough hook on low speed till the ingredients are combined.
  • Add oil and mix another 7 minutes. The dough should make a moist smooth ball, not sticky.
  • Cover and let rise.
  • 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.
  • Allow to cool for 15 minutes.

    I'm particularly fond of Italian sausage on home-made pizza so this sounds terrific for me .I could eat those fennel flavoured sausages all day long !!
