Deep-Dish Pizza
Ingredients
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 13.8 ounce packages  refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 1/2  cups  sliced red onion
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4  cup  olive oil
  • 1 10  ounce package  frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
  • 1  cup  ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/4  cups  shredded pizza cheese (4-cheese blend) (5 ounces)
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4  teaspoon  crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 4  roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F. Lightly coat a 12-inch cast-iron or heavy oven-going skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Unroll 1 package of pizza dough; gently pull into a circle. Place dough in prepared skillet; press dough into bottom and halfway up sides of skillet. Bake 5 minutes; remove from oven. Dough will have puffed slightly.

2. Meanwhile, in large skillet cook onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons of the oil about 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Remove from heat; set aside. In a small bowl combine ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup of the pizza cheese, parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the crushed red pepper. Spoon spinach mixture evenly over bottom of partially baked crust.

3. Spread ricotta mixture over spinach layer. Top with tomatoes; drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup of the remaining pizza cheese. Unroll remaining pizza dough; shape into a 12- to 13-inch circle. Lay dough round on layers in skillet. Brush with remaining oil. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until top is golden. Top with remaining pizza cheese. Bake 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
