I'm pretty sure the pizza stone ranks as one of the smartest inventions in human history. The crust slid right off the stone, it browned nicely all around, and even though I used about twice as much dough as I should have (you can't really tell, but I redefined the term 'deep dish' - and so can you!), it cooked perfectly throughout the massive folds of bread. Delicious!
Obviously, this will work with a wide variety of items you might have on hand, but I have to recommend following my lead with spinach and pre-sauteed Brussels sprouts. Or, better yet, arugula and spinach mixed together. I'm not a huge fan of arugula eaten raw, but it's great on pizza.
Sadly, I realized that I was out of nooch. I KNOW! Perish the thought. This is a really serious problem. Please, everybody, to avoid a fate similar to mine, please make sure that you have a backstock of nooch. Don't fail your future self. Keep nooch well-stocked as if it was the only way to thwart a nuclear attack. Happily, I realized that I can make a cheesy white bean spread without nooch. (Not that I'll ever do it again.) So the below recipe is great for those of you who didn't prepare well, or who don't like nooch.
