Pizza Pot Pie Recipe

  • 2 20oz oven safe bowls
  • 1 lb bag of premade pizza dough from the supermarket
  • 10 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 24oz jar of bolognese style pasta meat sauce
  • 8 white button mushrooms
  • 10 pepperonis
  1. Remove the pizza dough from the refrigerator and let it get up to room temperature and rise a little bit.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Split the dough into two sections.
  4. Roll out the dough to the a size where it drapes over the side of the bowl and kind of wraps around (it will probably be a little thick).
  5. Set the dough aside.
  6. Grease the inside of a bowl using butter, olive oil or cooking spray so the cheese won’t stick to the bottom of the bowl.
  7. Line the bowl with the slices of cheese. They should overlap to prevent gaps and should also cover the entire bottom of the bowl.
  8. Add 4 of the mushrooms into the bowl on top of the cheese.
  9. Place 5 pepperonis into the bowl in between and on top of the mushrooms.
  10. Pour the meat sauce into the bowl (I used a little less than half of the container for each bowl).
  11. Lay the pizza dough over the top of the bowl so it drapes over the edge almost to the counter.
  12. Grease the outside of the bowl with butter, olive oil or cooking spray so the dough won’t stick to the bowl.
  13. Press the dough against the sides of the bowl to form a nice sealed package.
  14. Repeat for the second pie.
  15. Place both bowls on a baking sheet in case there is spillage.
  16. Put the baking sheet with the pies in the oven for 35 minutes.
  17. Remove from the oven and let stand for 2 minutes.
  18. Using pot holders or oven mitts place transfer the bowl to a plate.
  19. Hold a large spoon between plate and the bowl and with an oven mitt on top flip the bowl over.
  20. Use the spoon to separate the dough from the sides of the bowl and remove the bowl.
  21. Scoop any extra cheese out of the bowl into the pie
