Deep Dish #3: Is the dough rising?

A not-pleasant part of making deep dish pizza is the part where you’re not sure if the dough is rising or not. You keep asking “Did it get bigger?” “Doesn’t it sort of look like it’s the same size?” “Is it going to be a failure?” and so on. Well, the third time we made deep dish, I came up with this cute solution: When the dough blob is bigger than the original smiley face tracing of it, you know it’s getting bigger!

Below is what the (leftovers) of the final product (spinoccoli) looked like.
