Unbelievable Slow Cooker Deep Dish Pizza. That’ right, Chicago style pizza made in the crockpot. BOOM!
I have a strange fondness of making out of the ordinary dishes in the crockpot. I secretly consider it a personal challenge.
Some of my favorites include…
A few weeks ago I was craving Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza in a major way, so I started rummaging through my cabinets to find the right sized pans to make it.
Suddenly I stopped in my tracks… Could Deep Dish Pizza be made in the crockpot?!?
Instead of pulling out cake pans, I lifted my slow cookers onto the counter.
Since I had made bread in the crockpot before, I knew what wonderful things low heat could do to yeasty dough. This had to work.
As you can see in the photos, my efforts in making a Slow Cooker Deep Dish Pizza Recipe were a huge success.
You might be wondering, “Why would I make pizza in a slow cooker when I could just pop it in the oven?”
I’m so glad you asked…
Why You Should Make Slow Cooker Deep Dish Pizza
Slow cooker pizza is hard to burn. I mean, you really have to try to burn it. If you have an affinity for leaving things in the oven too long, this recipe is for you! Leave the house for a few hours without fear.
Crockpot cooking saves energy. It also keeps your house cool.
Perfect crust. Cooking the crust low and slow gives it a fabulous pillowy texture on the inside, yet it still crisps up on the outside.
It’s a great kids cooking project. Gone are your concerns of singed fingers. Set out toppings and let the kids go crazy! They’ll have fun stretching the dough and piling on the cheese, right in the crockpot.
Come home to a finished dinner. Like with most crockpot recipes, you can prep the pizza in the morning and come home to a tantalizing dinner, ready and waiting for you.
Plus, if you have several crockpots you can make multiple varieties at once. (You wouldn’t believe how many friends and readers tell me they have 3-4 crockpots at home.)
I am in love with this Chicago Style Slow Cooker Deep Dish Pizza. Head over heels.
However, you can make any sort of deep dish pizza you like in your crockpot.
Why not give it a try?
