2Chef’s Note: This is an interesting way to do a pizza. I got the idea from Deb Crane, and Maggie… and they posted videos from the Chicago pizza place that made these famous. This is my version of the dish.
The whole idea is to put all your ingredients into an ovenproof bowl, and drape the crust over the bowl. Then, after it bakes, you invert, and remove the bowl.
And you have Pizza in a bowl.
3Gather your ingredients.
4Place a rack in the bottom position, and preheat the oven to 400f (205c).
5Chef's Note: You want a bowl to put all the ingredients in... It should be ovenproof, and 3 to 4 inches in diameter.
6Add some cheese to the bottom of the bowl… my choice is mozzarella.
7Add another cheese (optional), I chose provolone.
8Add some pepperoni (optional).
9Add some Italian sausage (optional).
10Add some mushrooms (optional).
11Add some pizza sauce (not optional).
12Cover with the pizza crust, and let drape over the sides of the bowl.
13Brush the dough with egg yolk, mixed with a bit of water.
14Place into the preheated oven, and bake until the crust is brown, about 18 minutes.
