Deep Woods Deep-Dish Pizza


1 loaf frozen bread dough or 1 package frozen pizza crust dough

2 cups grated mozzarella cheese

1 package pre-sliced pepperoni or 1 pound cooked Italian sausage or your favorite pizza topping

cooking oil

I jar pizza or tomato sauces

medium onion

chopped green pepper


Let bread dough thaw and partially rise. Meanwhile, grease Dutch oven inside-bottom and sides- with cooking oil. Press risen dough to cover entire bottom of Dutch oven, being careful not to tear dough. Let dough bake until light brown.

Pour and spread sauce evenly over dough, leaving edges clear. Sprinkle cheese as desired onto sauce. Add meat, onions, peppers as decided.

Place covered oven in coals: then cover the lid with coals. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, checking every 10 to 15 minutes for doneness. Cook until outside crust is brown and cheese is bubbling in center.
