Devon: You know, revenge is a dish best served cold, Jack; like shashimi or pizza.
Jack: You prefer cold pizza?
Devon: The morning after. It's the best.
Jack: Better than hot pizza? That's insane!
Devon: You don't tell me what kind of pizza to like!

We love pizza. I mean, we really, really love it. Just about every Friday night we can be found eating pizza from one or another of our favorite pizza joints. We typically go for a New York style pizza, but often crave a nice, thick, deep dish pizza that screams, "Chicago!" We've even gone as far as to order pizza from Chicago and have it shipped to us on dried ice. But the shipping alone costs more than the pizza!

So, we decided to make our own deep dish pizza, and make it a bit healthier as we regularly do in our kitchen. We used this recipe for the dough. We made some tasty sauce from San Marzano canned tomatoes. We didn't feel like making the journey to the store, so we used what we had for toppings—grilled chicken, caramelized onions, orange peppers and mozzarella.

Our only regrets were making this in an 8x8 dish because after finishing it off we wanted more! But we did save half the dough so we could make another pizza next week, which can't get here fast enough.
