Deep Dish Chourico, Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

Pizza Dough Ingredients:

4 cups flour (more as needed)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 package dry yeast (1/4 ounce or 2 1/4 tsp)

1 teaspoon of sugar

2 teaspoons of salt

1 1/2 cups of warm water

cast iron pan


1 small onion (minced)

1/4 cup raw red or green pepper (finely chopped)

1 cup fresh or canned chopped tomatoes

1 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning mix

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or minced garlic

8 oz. sliced pepperoni

8 oz cooked sausage or Portuguese chourico sausage or any sausage (sliced)

2 tablespoons olive oil

8 oz shredded mozzarella

4 oz pecorino cheese


Place flour, sugar and dry yeast into mixer. Mix ingredients together. Slowly add water and olive oil. Knead for around 1 minute and add salt.

Continue kneading dough until a soft dough/ball forms. Add additional 1 tbsp of flour at a time if dough is too wet/sticky. Cover with plastic wrap and towel and let rise for about 1 hour.

When dough has doubled in size, divide in half. Stretch out pizza dough, and place onto deep dish cast iron pan that has been dusted with a little flour and cornmeal.

Brush dough with olive oil. Top with tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic followed by 1/2 of the cheese. Add the meats and top with oregano and remaining cheeses.

Bake at 425 F for around 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven.
