      This is insanely good. I've never had a deep dish pizza before, but my husband has many times, and he said it's spot on--very authentic. I followed the recipe also for the crust and sauce specified inside the recipe. I made it last weekend and will be making it again tonight. I don't have the pizza pan called for, so I used an 11x7 oblong baking dish. It worked well enough but the crust was a teeny bit thick around the bottom corners/edge. Definitely not the fault of the pizza--lack of equipment on my part.
