Delicious Deep Dish Pizza with Butter Crust

While growing up my mother would bake bread every two weeks or so. Bread day was an all day thing for her so dinner needed to be part of the bread making routine. Therefore, in our house bread day was also the day for home made pizza.

The pizza she made was delicious but always was a very Sicilian like pizza. She always made it in a full sheet pan and used the best of Italian meats and cheese. So when I learned that there were other kinds of pizza I tended to not like them as much. To this day I still think nothing is better then home made pizza, but I now include many other kinds of pizza in my home made pizza repertoire.

Here is my deep dish pizza copied from a local Bay Area high end pizza shop.  This pizza has a yummy butter cornmeal crust that adds a very nutty full taste to it that I think makes it the best way to eat deep dish.
