Pizza You Thought You Could Only Get in Chicago
Making homemade pizza can be tricky: There's the challenge of stretching the dough into an evenly formed shape that's neither too thick nor too thin, and once you get it in the oven, the pizza can quickly go from undercooked to burnt-to-a-crisp in a minute. Using a slow cooker eliminates both problems and has the added bonus of keeping your kitchen way more comfortable than it might be if you crank the oven up to 500. This indulgent-tasting, deep-dish pizza is a light version of the deep-dish personal pan kind served in restaurants, but with much less oil (just a tablespoon) and no butter.
