Have you ever tried to deconstruct a pizza? I hadn’t until the other day when I made my first pizza pot pie. Layers of sauce, pepperoni and cheese are all baked under the canopy of a delicious pizza crust. It is a fabulous, easy dinner that everyone loved. I decided to make mine with pepperoni, but you could do it with roasted vegetables, sausages or any other kind of pizza topping. You could even try sprinkling the top with cheese and extra pepperoni! Whatever you choose, your family with love this ooey gooey decadent dinner. And, I promise, you will, too!
Pepperoni Pizza Pot Pie
1 large package pepperoni
4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
28 ounces pizza sauce
1 ball store-bought pizza dough
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. In a 2-quart baking dish layer the pizza sauce, pepperoni and mozzarella until it reaches near the top. Roll the crust into a circle that is 1 inch wider than the diameter of the baking dish and drape it over the pot. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the crust is browned and the inside is bubbly.
