How To Make Pizza Pot Pie
Enjoy a cheesy and meaty bite with this pizza pot pie recipe. The buttery pizza dough is topped with marinara sauce and Italian sausage.
Put the pizza dough in a medium bowl and coat well with 1 tablespoon of oil. Cover with plastic wrap and put in a warm place for about 1 hour depending on the dough until doubled in bulk.
- Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Put the garlic, bell peppers and onions in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped, scraping down the sides of the bowl halfway through.
Heat the remaining oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon for about 4 minutes until lightly browned. Add the onion mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes until the moisture has evaporated from the pan and the onions are soft.
Stir in the marinara sauce, oregano, red pepper flakes, ¼ cup of water, ½ teaspoon of salt and several grinds of black pepper. Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, stirring often, for about 15 minutes until thick.
Brush the sides and lip of a 6-inch ramekin with butter. Line the bottom and sides with the Havarti. Fill with 1½ cups of hot marinara-sausage sauce. Reserve the remaining sauce for another use.
Gently pull and stretch the pizza dough into a 10-inch circle and place it over the ramekin, leaving a 2-inch overhang all around. Gently press around the edges of the ramekin to lightly seal. Put on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes until golden brown and the top sounds hollow when tapped.
Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven, transfer the ramekin to a heatproof surface and place a plate on top. Carefully invert the ramekin onto the plate, using a spoon to gently pry the dough from the dish. Serve hot.
