Stuffed Pizza!

Lately, I haven't felt much like writing things out here. I have to organize my thoughts and recommit to this blog. That said, I'll just jump right in to the food.

The first time I tasted deep dish Chicago stuffed pizza, I wasn't really sure what to think. I was in highschool, visiting Chicago on a school trip. The very first place they took us was for Chicago Style Pizza!

I fell much harder for the stuff when David and I moved to Illinois a few years later. We would treat ourselves to Giordano's. When people came to visit, we took them there. When we lived in Arizona, Oregano's.

When I got my first spring form pan (it was a frugal find ~ from when we lived in Los Angeles. A woman was moving out of the apartment she had lived in for twenty some years. She left me a few kitchen treats.) Anyway.. when I got my first springform pan, I thought it could be done.

It has taken me this long to attempt it.

Last night's dinner was quite a success, although I'm still tweaking the recipe a bit. We all felt the meal was satisfying and tasty as all get out.

more on this later... including pictures!
