I made my last pizza crust with a lot of cornmeal in the dough. It was good and crunchy.

I didn't discover the value of cornmeal in my pizza dough for a long time.  I am still trying to get the amount right and I've been generally unsatisfied with any recipe that I come across.  The cornmeal gives the crust some texture and body without weighing down the rest of the dough.  But it always seems like I've added too much-- even when I'm staying conservative.  I need a crust that has some structure to it for deep-dish pizza, but one that is not too stiff or dense.

Later I'll send you the recipe I used if you want, but it was just a regular pizza, not pan.

I don't really want to make a pan pizza (in the pizza hut sense), but more like a deep-dish pizza.  I need a crust that can line a pizza pan (ok, so maybe it's a pan pizza.  I think a lot of pizzas suffer from a lack of good and clear terms) and stand up the sides.  The technique is kind of like a pie crust that lines the bottom of the pan and climbs the sides.  I pre-bake the crust then bake it again with the cheese/toppings.

I've got the crust about 80% figured out.  So.  Close.

Joe, are you talking about something like the old Pizza Hut priazzo?

Doesn't ring a bell.  We might have not had that in KC.

I mean something more like a Chicago style pizza.  Something you'd find at Uno/Due/Gino's.

Oh. My.

Mm, I'm going to have to make another Pizza Hut trip soon!  You know, I always liked their stuffed crust.  Of course, I am always looking for the most efficient way of cramming the maximum amount of cheese into my body.

Oh, I see...  The priazzo was something like that, only more like a regular pie with a thin crust on the bottom, filled with cheese and stuff, then another crust on top, which was topped with more cheese.  It was great-  I wish Pizza Hut would bring it back.

I remember that! It was my favorite -- all those thin layers soaked with sauce and cheese. I was just a young pup then. I wish Pizza Hut would bring it back.

Hmm...  I wonder if I can get Papa Murphy's to make me one of those?
