Deep Dish Pizza, a New Tra-Dish with Ragú


Ragú challenged bloggers to put their own spin on one of their classic dishes and create, what they call, a New Tra-Dish. I was given their Upside-Down Deep Dish Pizza Recipe and I decided to flip it back!  It's easy to make and you can change up your fillings with different meats and add veggies if you like.  Each are complimented nicely by the delicious sauce Ragú has made.  I know this is a dish we will make often!

Each jar of Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is made with 11 juicy tomatoes making it its richest, thickest recipe.*

Deep Dish Pizza, a New Tra-Dish with Ragú

1 pound ground beef
1 - 24 oz jar Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon cornmeal
1 - 13.8 can refrigerated classic pizza crust
2 cups shredded Italian Blend cheese (or mozzarella)
1.75 oz of sliced pepperoni
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  In a skillet, cook ground beef until no longer pink.  Drain meat and add sauce. 

 Stir until blended. Turn off heat.
You can start on the crust while you are cooking you ground beef to save time. Coat bottom and half way up of 10" cast iron skillet with olive oil.  I used a paper towel to help spread it.  Sprinkle in cornmeal as even as you can get it. 
Unroll pizza crust and place in pan.  Use a small roller or your hands to press it around evenly and up the sides about halfway.
 It's not pretty but I like the rustic look. Par-bake for 8 minutes.
Remove from oven and add cheese in an even layer.
 Add a row of pepperoni.
 Spoon on your sauce and meat mixture.
 Spread it evenly to the lip of the crust.   
Return to oven and bake for 15 minutes.  After those 15 minutes, sprinkle on the Parmesan and bake for another 5 minutes.


You can enjoy now or let it rest for 10 minutes before cutting into it.

    1. Thanks, it's a Pampered Chef gadget. It has a wider on the other end. Both are nice when you don't need a large roller or want to roll in a jelly roll pan.

    1. You could use a springform pan or a cake pan. Something that has taller sides on it. It wouldn't be as deep dish but you could roll into a rectangle cookie sheet. It's pretty versatile!
