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

AAA5853
The two-layered 1 1/4-inch high pizza pie looked like deep-dish and combined elements of pizza, quiche and lasagne. It was topped with a second layer of tomato sauce and melted cheese.

We did attempt a ghetto 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 great video shows a version which coats raw pizza dough in cornmeal and the top layer is a quarter of the size of the bottom layer of dough. And here’s another great attempt. And the more we think about the dough/crust, this pizza rustica looks like a thin solution to pastry that’s bread-like.

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

This is such a calorie-bomb, we think it might be best left to memories…

Vintage Seventeen recipe searchers

Lonely, old, unanswered requests for lost Seventeen magazine recipes tug at our heartstrings. We know the feeling…

For the past few years, when we obsess google looking for 1980s-era clippings, we keep stumbling across old forums with pleas for the same recipes.

Lots of google searches for old Seventeen magazine recipes are popping up here.

We have dozens of their “Now You’re Cooking” recipe clippings perfectly preserved and we’re happy to share. Just search “Seventeen” and you’ll find them here.

If you can help by sharing some pages, please do!

UPDATE: NEW REQUESTS

Do you have any fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s recipe pages? Share if you can!

Especially an October 1983 page for Oktoberfest feast? Or October 1980 Turkey Normandy?

  • From Brenda: “I ran across your website while ISO a mid-1970’s Seventeen Magazine recipe for Short Ribs. I think they featured a teenage cook named “Barb” in it. Also, I recall there was an Easter Cake recipe in it so I’m thinking a March or April edition? It was the first time I had cooked dinner for my family and both recipes were outstanding. Any chance we can find both recipes? (BTW, I’m kicking myself for letting my mother throw out my copies of Seventeen!”
  • Does anyone have the Glazed Corned Beef, Red Flannel Hash, Irish Coffee and Irish Soda Bread. From March 1983 issue.
  • Japanese Tempura shrimp and vegetable tempura, Japanese noodles, gingered ice cream and hot tea from May 1983 Now You’re Cooking.
