Deep-Dish Pizza Supreme

Deep-Dish Pizza Supreme

There is no reason to order a takeout pizza when you can make a better pie at home with all your favorite toppings!

All of our favorite flavors come together in this deep-dish specialty pizza baked on our delicious focaccia-style crust. Here we use pepperoni, pancetta and all our favorite veggie toppings to create a pie that is filling and satisfying. But feel free to add or subtract toppings, based on your own personal taste. Sprinkle oregano, grated parmesan cheese, and crushed red pepper flakes on top for an extra dose of yumminess.
