This was by far the best homemade pizza I have ever tasted. I made this pizza last night and my family loved it. We usually get our deep dish fix from Nancy's here in Atlanta. Who needs to go out when this recipe was so easy and delicious!
1 (1 pound) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 small onion, chopped
2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon olive oil,
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of a greased baking dish. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese evenly over the dough. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil, garlic and onions; cook until lightly browned, stirring constantly. Add tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in oregano, diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce; simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce mixture is slightly thickened. Spoon tomato sauce over the mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let pizza stand 10 minutes before serving.
