Tasty Tuesday: Deep Dish Pizza

This is a quick and easy pizza dish.  You can easily customize it with your own toppings.  We used to sometimes have all the toppings ready and would make it when we got home from the race tracks on Saturday nights.  This is definitely a “fork” pizza and keep plenty napkins on hand!
