Tuna Melt Deep Dish Pan Pizza

You read that right, although if you saw my old posts on tuna melt pizza or the tuna melt calzone you won’t be surprised. Tuna salad does marvelous things on pizza, like browning beautifully. See that lovely Maillard action going on there?023That’s the tuna salad. Well and the crust, the crust came out awesome too. Even the bottom got nicely browned.002I baked it in a dark metal 8″ cake pan that I slathered with olive oil in a 450 degree oven for I have no idea how long. Until everything was browned and delicious.   010 The dough was actually a shot from the hip, I just took maybe 1/2 cup each water and milk, a little honey, yeast and salt and a bunch of flour. Mixed it until I got tired of it and let it rise while I decided what I wanted to do with it. After a couple hours I wanted pizza, had some tuna salad in the fridge and called it serendipity.014 - CopySince I’m such a nice guy I brought the last slice over to my sister who was appropriately thrilled. One of my nieces insisted that she *had* to try it and she loved it too. She’s lucky her mother is nice as well. Heh.

  1. Your tuna melt pizza and this deep dish one look Great! I bet your sister and nieces were thrilled!

  2. Oh man…. This pizza looks so tasty and perfect. I tried making deep dish pizza and it failed horribly even though I used a recipe. I wish I had your pizza making luck!
