Pizza Pot Pie

    So I have been thinking about pot pies a lot lately.  I mean, you could really put anything in them!  I like the creamy chicken pot pie that MiMi makes so much, that I hardly ever venture from there.  But, she made a really good cheese and broccoli pot pie last time she made them and I have been dreaming about making a beef and mushroom pot pie with a wine sauce.  I mean really, how can that not be good.  It is going to happen people!  I am just not sure when.
    All the while, MiMi's head was going a completely different direction.  Why not a pizza pot pie?  I know, mind blown!  It seems a little strange to put pizza toppings between pie crusts.  But really, why not?  I mean, don't you love it when you get that takeout pizza with the buttery flaky crust?
 Do I need to give you a minute to mull that over?

   Ok. Just trust me, it will work.  See, it works!  Look at that.  Now you are starting to believe!

Pizza Pot Pie


2 T corn meal
1 pie crusts

1 cup spaghetti or pizza sauce
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella or Italian cheese blend
1/2 tsp pizza seasoning
Pizza toppings of your choice (precook any meat you plan on adding): this pot pie had tomatoes, mini pepperonis, ham, bacon and mushrooms (sounds good, huh?!)

  • Preheat oven to 425 F
  • Spray pie plate with cooking spray and sprinkle with cornmeal as a little nod to a pizza crust.
  • Put first pie crust in the pan and layer in this order:

    1. 1/3 of the cheese
    2. 1/2 of the sauce
    3. Pizza toppings of your choice
    4. 1/3 of the cheese
    5. Remaining sauce
    6. Remaining cheese
    7. Pizza seasoning
  • Place top crust over pie.  Seal edges and cut slits for steam to escape
  • Bake at 425 F for 30-40 minutes.  
  • Let it cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing.  You don't want all of that good cheese running everywhere!
Throw together a nice salad, and you have a meal!
