I've decided to start a new little series on my blog and use each Friday to highlight one of my favorite food bloggers. I love the huge community of amazing food and recipe blogs that are available to me and so many inspire me to be creative, take risks and create original recipes of my own!
This week I'm pointing you to Annie's Eats, which has such an amazing assortment of tried-and-true recipes to choose from. I've found this blog as one of my go-to's over and over again when it comes to inspiration for weeknight meals or sweet treats.
The latest recipe I gave a try was a huge success at our dinner table: Chicago-Style Deep Dish Pizza! My husband and I used to live in Northern Indiana when we went to college (and several years after) and fell in love with that amazing style of deep-dish pizza. Don't get me wrong, I love a thin crust too, basically any kind of pizza is right up my alley! However, there's just something amazing about that Chicago-style pie. I knew I had to give it a try in my own kitchen and it was so delicious.
Don't be intimidated by the multi-step recipe, it really is super-simple and don't skimp out and buy your tomato sauce, it won't be as good. The chunky tomato sauce on top of the pie is the best part...except for the cheese...and the amazing crust...ok, I love it all!
I added a layer of pepperoni to the bottom of my pie and recommend if you want to add toppings this pizza, make sure you cook them well (like mushrooms/peppers/onions/sausage) before adding them to the pizza as the first layer on the bottom. You don't want to just throw raw veggies in there, they'll end up soggy and leak water all into your pizza...gross.
I can't wait to make this recipe again, thanks Sally's Baking Addiction for another winning recipe!
