Deep-dish lovers, this one’s for you. You don’t have to go all the way to Chicago for a pie that’s soft and doughy on the inside, crispy-golden on the outside and slathered in ooey-gooey cheese. In fact, you don’t even have to leave your house. You’ll let the dough get nice and hot before topping it with gorgeous ricotta, mozzarella, pesto and more, then returning it to the oven to finish cooking up. It’ll get sinfully melty, just the way you want a deep-dish to be. Serve it with a creamy kale, red cabbage and basil salad for a fresh and crunchy counterpoint.

Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Strip the kale leaves off the stems; thinly slice the kale into ribbons. Mince the garlic. Pick the basil leaves off the stems. In a medium bowl, combine the pizza sauce and ⅓ of the spice blend; season with S&P.

Start the skillet pizza
Generously brush the bottom and sides of an oven-safe pan or pie dish with oil (for 4 portions, use 2 pans). Lightly brush a clean work surface with oil. Roll or spread the dough out to the size of your pan. Carefully transfer the dough to the pan. Push the dough down with your fingers to cover the bottom of the pan, making sure there are no thin patches. Drizzle with olive oil; season with ½ the remaining spice blend and S&P. Transfer to the oven and cook, 6 to 8 minutes, until the dough is partially cooked.

Make the vinaigrette
While the dough cooks, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, up to ½ the garlic (to taste) and 1 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with a pinch of the remaining spice blend and S&P to taste.

Finish the skillet pizza
Top the partially cooked pizza dough with the ricotta, remaining garlic, mozzarella, spoonfuls of the seasoned pizza sauce, pesto and a drizzle of olive oil; season with the remaining spice blend. Return to the oven and cook, 12 to 14 minutes, until the cheese and crust are golden brown. Remove from the oven. Roughly chop the basil and sprinkle ½ over the finished pizza. Set aside to cool.

Make the salad
While the skillet pizza cooks, in a large bowl, combine the kale and a drizzle of olive oil; season with S&P to taste. Using your hands, massage the kale until wilted. Add the cabbage, remaining basil and as much of the vinaigrette as you’d like. Toss to combine thoroughly.

Plate your dish
Carefully lift the finished pizza out of the skillet and transfer to a cutting board; slice and divide between your plates. Serve the salad on the side. Bon appétit!
