Double Decker Pizza

11 Mar

Thanks a million to Janice and Sharon for this obviously well-loved and highly sought after 1979 Seventeen magazine gem:


Does it look familiar? If you are a child of the 1980s, you will remember Pizza Hut’s priazzo:

The two-layered pizza pie looked like a deep-dish pizza. It was topped with a layer of tomato sauce and melted cheese. Varieties included Priazzo Milano, a blend of Italian sausage, pepperoni, beef, pork, bacon, mozzarella and cheddar cheese; Priazzo Florentine, five cheeses with ham and spinach, and Priazzo Roma, stuffed with pepperoni, mushrooms, Italian sausage, pork, onions, mozzarella and cheddar cheese.

We did attempt a home version years ago using a Kraft pizza kit. It was a lot of work, but if you cook it right, it’s pretty amazing.

Can’t remember if we pre-baked the top crust to make sure it didn’t turn into goo. This is such a calorie-bomb, we think it might be best left to memories…

But we wonder how mini pies would look? Kind of a riff on a mini pot pie/deep dish double crust pizza?

    I worked at Pizza Hut during this time and this was a very delicate pizza to make. The top crust was thinner than the base and it was a different dough from the normal pizza crust. I am not sure the recipe any more.
