Deep Dish Mediterranean Pizza



Follow directions on Trader Joe’s dough package. Have a large round or large 18″ jelly roll pan ready by spreading olive oil a little up the sides and on the bottom of the pan and sprinkling with a little corn meal. Pre bake dough at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Sauté mushrooms and garlic in oil. Remove pizza dough from oven and build pizza in order of listed ingredients:

Spread the sauce leaving 1/2 inch around the edges.

Place cut pieces of spinach evenly around.

Place onion pieces evenly around.

Sprinkle with feta cheese.

Cover with mozzarella cheese.

Sprinkle with sautéed mushrooms.

Place tomatoes as desired (and olives if you are using them).

Sprinkle with asiago cheese.

Bake pizza for 25-35 minutes (Trader Joe’s Crust). Sprinkle with more asiago, Romano or parmesan before serving.

*Use one package for thinner crust.

**You can use 2 tablespoons of tomato paste mixed with 2 tablespoons water.

***If you prefer peeled tomatoes, place in boiling water for 10 – 15 seconds to loosen skin.

Pizza Dough

(This is enough for a deep dish pizza made in a large round or an 18″ jelly roll pan. Use less amounts for a thinner crust.)
