Easy Deep-Dish Pizza Pie

Gail Herbest


I found this on the Pillsbury site not too long ago.It is very quick and easy, and yummy.I am posting the recipe exactly as it was written. The next time I make it however I am going to try pizza crust instead of the french bread, The Pillsbury french bread I found to be a little hard to unroll, and a little heavier then I wanted. I am also going to try it with sausage and other pizza topping, I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9x13 pan.
