    Chef Zephyr's Note:

    A great deep dish pizza that I have made for years. Leftovers are good reheated or cold. Kids might not like it because of the spinach & mushrooms. This is a not a quick recipe. It's not complicated but has many steps. It's worth the work. Once you have the basic recipe down, you can play with the ingredients. I often cut back on the salt in the dough & add garlic salt, basil & oregano. I also use the dough recipe for a hand tossed thinner crust pizza. I usually save this for a slow weekend. To speed things up I use pre-shredded cheese and bulk Italian sausage when I can find it. If you don't like whole wheat in your crust, just replace with white flour. The crust is pretty crunchy.

      Wow this is a great pizza! I left out the onions and used fresh spinach, otherwise made as directed. This made a huge flavorful deep-dish pizza and it was really pretty easy to make. Next time I'll try it using my favorite combo, ham and pineapple! Thanks for sharing this great recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009

      I cannot give 5 stars as I am only reviewing the topping as I used a pre made base but the topping was different and very flavoursome and was very much enjoyed and certainly I will do this again. I sprinkled pine nuts over the top. It also made a generous amount which is also a big plus.
