This sounds similar to what I've also heard of doing this to get the
pizza pan out -- attaching pieces of clothes-hanger wire to the pan to
lift it out (it doesn't have to be attached to the side; attaching
them further in and make the pizza around them is supposed to work).
My variation on DO pizza was to make pizza rolls or calzones. I made
the pizza rolls by rolling out and topping a pizza as you normally
would (I used Rhodes bake and serve bread dough or homemade bread
dough to make the crust; you could also use the dough from pizza
mixes), then rolling it up and slicing it. Place the slices in the DO
and cook until the bread is done. (I've also just put the whole
rolled-up pizza in without slicing; this seems to work as well.)
Calzones (pizza pockets) are a variation of this; make smaller pizzas
(8" or so in diameter, more square than round), place the sauce and
toppings on in the middle, leaving a couple of inches of crust/dough
all the way around. Take the edges and fold them up over the top, and
press together to seal the toppings in the middle. You can place
several together in the bottom of the DO -- they'll grow together, but
can still be reasonable separated. These variations are a hit with my
A DO recipe book also suggests making bread dough from scratch, and
mixing in all of the pizza toppings (excluding sauce) right into the
dough, then baking it. The result can be dipped in warmed pizza sauce
(kinda like Little Caesar's Crazy Bread).
