    Butter in the crust is the secret? I usually use EVOO. I’ll have to switch it up next time.

    I cannot believe it’s been a month! Hope you have a fun reunion!
    The pizza looks yummy, I’m going to definitely try green olives next time. Have a fun weekend!

    Kick-Ass is kick ass 🙂 No actually, it’s pretty good; just not what I expected when I rented it.

    Pizza looks delish though. My mouth is seriously watering. What is froggy italian ice? What does it taste like?

    I love Honey Moon, I swear, I can drink it like I drink water :o)

    mmmm, I don’t remember having a deep dish pizza, but maybe you had to press the dough sort of pie shaped for the consistency?

    Anyway, I saw Kick-Ass a couple of weeks ago and it’s so bad ass and funny. But the downside is, the girl had to do six months of therapy because of her role. I don’t blame her, pretty grueling what she has to do.

    Have a sweet time with derek

    hey meghann! im a long-time, in-the-closet reader and i’ve finally decided enough is enough! i love your blog, and definitely read it everyday. your creative meal ideas are great for new flavor inspirations haha. anyways, kick-ass is a weird movie, but it liked it as well—you just have to go with it, weird super-heros and all.

    my best friend and i just started our own blog, http://www.standingintadasana.blogspot.com

    After all you guys have been in Chicago, I had the same thought (about making homemade deep dish). I’m not surprised that butter would be a secret ingredient. Maybe next time, try to get it up on the sides more, similar to a pie crust. That’s how I always have seen deep dish in Chi-town.

    That ice cream looks so amazing!! So does the pizza! I’ll have to try out that crust recipe and see if I can replicate my own Chicago deep dish. Gino’s East does have an amazing crust. Gosh, now I’m hungry! 🙂

    My husband watched Kick Ass in bed next to me while I faded in and out of a sickness-induced stupor, so I have awful memories of way too much action for my delicate state. How did you like it?

    Mmmm that deep dish looks yummy! I never thought to put green olives on my pizza, great idea!

    I love deep dish so much! I get it everytime I go back home to Chicago. I’ve thought about making my own, but my husband hates it. 🙁

    That must be so nice to see Derek after so long!! Thats crazy! And that pizza looks good! I don’t have a crust preference it just depends on my mood, thin, crunchy, dough-y… it’s all good in my book. But I’ve never tried deep dish!

    Gino’s East has a cornbread crust, so next time try adding more cornmeal and less flour. My great uncle founded Gino’s, and even I don’t know the crust recipe!!

    I wonder what the trick is to deep dish pizza dough? If you ever find out, let us know:)

    I’m very impressed that you tackled deep dish! It looks pretty darn good if you ask me! Too bad I can’t lick my screen (kidding..err yeah)

    Meghann, the only way you get a crispy crust is to preheat your oven proof skillet for like 30 minutes before you put your dough in – then put oil (not a lot) in the bottom of the skillet, add your dough and bake it for 15 minutes.

    Then take the dough out of your pan, add your toppings and cook the remainder of the time just on your oven rack – the heat of the oven will crisp up even the sides that way – let me know if you try it!

    And great run!

    I have never considered making my own deep dish before (I’m from the Chicago area so I guess I just took it for granted there) but that sounds delish! It looks like your crust didn’t rise enough, hence the denseness.

    What a long time to go without seeing Derek! I bet it was fun being reunited.
