Deep Dish Pizza

deep dish pizza

thick pizza crust loaded with creamy cheese & toppings galore!


  • PIZZA DOUGH: 1, we used store bought!
  • TOMATO SAUCE: ½-⅓ cup 
  • OLIVE OIL: 2 tbsp
  • Spero Sunflower Cream Cheese: ½ tub, we love using The Original or The Smoked :D
  • TOPPINGS: your choice. We used mushrooms, red onions, assorted peppers, & plant-based mozzarella! 


  1. SPREAD 2 tbsp olive oil across bottom & sides of a 9-10” cast iron skillet. 
  2. PLACE pizza dough into skillet & gently press toward edges of skillet. *It’s ok if it doesn’t reach the sides immediately. 
  3. ALLOW dough to rest for 10-15 minutes & gently press toward edges again. 
  4. COVER skillet with a damp towel & allow dough to rise for 30-45 min. 
  5. PREHEAT oven to 425°F. 
  6. SAUTÉ any vegetable toppings in a skillet to remove moisture. *This can be done ahead of time & set aside until needed. 
  7. BAKE pizza dough for 10 min. Meanwhile, whisk 2-3tbsp of hot water into one container of Spero Sunflower Cream Cheese until it is a smooth and spreadable consistency. 
  8. REMOVE dough from the oven & top with tomato sauce, Spero Sunflower Cream Cheese, and any toppings. 
  9. BAKE for an additional 10-15 min. or until crust is golden brown & pulling away from the edge of the skillet. 
  10. GARNISH with basil & red pepper flakes if desired. 
  11. INDULGE in your new fave cheesy deep dish pizza!
