Over the past several years I have learned to enjoy and experiment with cooking, baking and freezing food. Whether it be all-out from scratch, creating quick meals to grab and go, or making pretty food for a gift.

This Pennsylvania Dutch Girl has enjoyed a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza from time to time, but never really attempting to make my own, until recently learning to make pizza crust.

a round tin cake pan is what I used ~ it doesn’t get anymore dutch’ than this, using what you already have on hand to make this Deep Dish Pizza!

And pretty much in my mind….a Chicago Deep Dish Pizza is nothing more than an upside down pizza in a deeper pan….so a cake pan will do just fine.

My Chicago friend, Sheila is probably cringing about now.

Check out the Recipe below for ‘Dutch Style’ Chicago Deep Dish Pizza

    Pumpkin ‘No Spice’ Baby Bundt Cake

    There is nothing wrong with eating pumpkin desserts all year long….but for some reason anything pumpkin tastes better during the Autumn season.

    And this Recipe for ‘Pumpkin ‘No Spice’ Baby Bundt Cake‘ is no different.

    I typically never add the ‘spice’ when it comes to pumpkin recipes…..simply just to enjoy the flavor of pumpkin.

    Don’t have enough pumpkin? Substitute mashed bananas for the measurement difference. I keep frozen (ripened) mashed bananas on hand and also leftover pumpkin from other recipes. (why throw away good food).

      Love both recipes ( well, I love food in general and love to eat lol)
      Will make these for sure!

      1. Thank you Christine!…ah yes, the love of food 🙂 enjoy!

    2. You’re making me hungry again! I’ve never made pizza myself, although I enjoy eating it! The mini-bundt cakes sound delish! I have a great recipe for stuffed pumpkin bread that sounds similar. Need to dig out that recipe!

      1. Both recipes are full of goodness! Thank you for enjoying!

    3. OH! These are both great! And I didn’t cringe at all! Before I got my cast-iron pans last year, I used a spring form pan for my deep dish pizza. I lined the bottom with parchment paper and the sides came away, leaving a thin wall of crust to hold all that pizza goodness! 😉 Now that I have the cast iron pans, I make them without the side wall really. The cheese tends to ooze to the sides and makes its own crusty yummy-ness! But yours looks spot on and amazing! So does the pumpkin cake! I love everything pumpkin. Awesome post!

      1. Enjoy my Chicago Friend! How could you resist this yummy cheesy goodness!
