For the first time when I saw deep dish pizza , I just amazed, it was totally different from regular pizza. What a super delicious and I just love it.
Oh by the way I know deep dish pizza has different dough that is combination of all purpose flour with cornmeal and I cooked with this dough, but then I told myself lets try with regular pizza dough, and honestly I did not find any difference and as you see I made my today deep dish pizza with regular pizza dough and was absolutely wonderful.
