Also known as stuffed pizza, a deep-dish pizza is a Chicago style pizza baked in skillets or pans instead of oven. To make a deep dish spinach pizza, stuff a layer of the dough with spinach and mozzarella cheese. Next, place it in a skillet or slightly deeper pan. Although a steel pan is the usual choice for this, baking in a copper utensil has its own benefits. Once inside the pan, oil it from the sides and put the dough inside it while raising it from the edges. Since this pizza takes time to bake, it’s always a good idea to top it off with heavy toppings. In this case you can add a layer of tomato sausage followed by Parmesan cheese for added taste.
