HOMEMADE CHICAGO STYLE DEEP DISH PIZZA

INSTRUCTIONS:

1 ) Make the Dough: Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl.

2 ) Add water and melted butter and mix on low speed, using a dough hook, until fully combined, 1 to 2 minutes, scraping sides and bottom of bowl occasionally. Increase speed to medium and knead until the dough is glossy and smooth and pulls away from sides of the bowl, 4 to 5 minutes. (You can easily make this by hand, mixing in the water and butter with a spatula and then kneading by hand.)

3 ) Coat a large bowl with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Using a greased spatula, transfer the dough to the bowl, turning to coat the dough in oil; cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let rise at room temperature until nearly doubled in volume, 45 to 60 minutes.

4 ) Make the Sauce: While dough rises, heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until melted. Add onion, oregano, and salt; cook, stirring occasionally until liquid has evaporated and onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

5 ) Stir in tomatoes and sugar, increase heat to high, and bring to a simmer. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced to about 2½ cups, 25 to 30 minutes. Off the heat, stir in the basil and olive oil, then season with salt and pepper.

6 ) Laminate the Dough: Turn the dough out onto dry work surface and roll into a 15×12-inch rectangle. Using an offset spatula, spread the softened butter over the surface of the dough, leaving a ½-inch border along the edges. Starting at the short end, roll the dough into a tight cylinder. With seam side down, flatten the cylinder into an 18×4-inch rectangle.

7 ) Cut the rectangle in half crosswise. Working with one half, fold into thirds like a business letter; pinch seams together to form a ball. Repeat with the remaining half. Return balls to the oiled bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise in refrigerator until nearly doubled in volume, 40 to 50 minutes. Meanwhile, adjust oven rack to lower position and preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

8 ) Bake the Pizzas: Coat two 9-inch round cake pans with 2 tablespoons of olive oil each.

9 ) Transfer 1 dough ball to dry work surface and roll out into a 13-inch circle. Transfer dough to the pan by rolling the dough loosely around a rolling pin and unrolling into the pan. Lightly press dough into the pan, working into corners and 1-inch upsides. If dough resists stretching, let it relax for 5 minutes before trying again. Repeat with remaining dough ball.

10 ) For each pizza, sprinkle 2 cups mozzarella evenly over the surface of the dough. (If you’re using any meat or veggie toppings, add them now, on top of the cheese.) Spread 1¼ cups tomato sauce over the cheese (or toppings) and sprinkle 2 tablespoons Parmesan over the sauce. Bake until crust is golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove pizza from the oven and let rest 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, warmed to room temperature
  • 3 large egg yolks, warmed to room temperature

Glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted pecans

Butter Pecan Pound Cake

BUTTER PECAN POUND CAKE INSTRUCTIONS:

1 ) In a small mixing bowl, combine the chopped pecans with 1 tablespoon flour. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of the pecans in the bottom of the prepared pan. Set rest of pecans aside.

2 ) In a medium mixing bowl, combine 2½ cups flour, baking powder, and salt; sift or whisk together to mix. Set aside.

3 ) In a large bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Tip: To cream, start by placing the butter in the bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed begin by beating the butter about 1 minute until it is smooth and light in color.

4 ) With the mixer still on medium speed, slowly add the brown sugar and granulated sugar to the butter, either one tablespoon at a time, or in a very slow steady stream, taking from 4 to 8 minutes to add all of the sugar, and beating until the butter and sugar are fully incorporated and the mixture is a light, or pale yellow color, with a fluffy texture.

5 ) While adding the sugar, stop the mixer occasionally to scrape the mixture off the paddle and scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula so the mixture blends evenly.

6 ) Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating until thoroughly mixed. Tip: For each egg, crack the egg into a small bowl and whisk with a fork to thoroughly break up the egg before adding to the creamed mixture.

7 ) Start with the mixer on low speed so the liquid from the egg doesn’t splatter, once the egg is partially mixed increase the speed to medium.

8 ) Each egg should be fully incorporated into the mixture before adding the next egg, taking about one minute to blend in each egg.

9 ) With the mixer on low speed, add vanilla and about one-third of the flour mixture, mix just until the flour is almost completely blended.Scrape the bowl down and continue the flour mixture.

10 ) Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold floured pecans into the batter.

Bake:

1 ) Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface with the back of a large spoon. Bake 65 to 75 minutes or until a long toothpick, wooden skewer, or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

2 ) Place pan on a wire cooling rack to cool for 10 to 15 minutes then remove cake from the pan and place the cake on the wire cooling rack to finish cooling.

Glaze:

1 ) In 1-quart saucepan, cook butter, brown sugar, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg and whipping cream over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Boil 1 minute.

2 ) Remove from heat; pour into medium bowl. Cool 20 minutes. With whisk, beat in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Immediately pour over cake.

3 ) Sprinkle 2 tablespoons pecans on top. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
