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:

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…
