Cathy's Pizza Pot Pie

Cathy LaFay


I needed to get rid of some ready made pie crusts in my freezer and had some sausage that needed to get cooked... and so... this recipe was born. You can use anything you would use on a regular pizza or whatever you have on hand.

pinch tips: Parchment Paper Vs Wax Paper






3 medium
onions, sliced
3 clove
garlic (or more if you like garlic)
1 can(s)
8 oz tomato sauce
mozzarella cheese or any kind of cheese you like either shredded or if its a block cut into thin slices..
links of italian sausage (either sweet or hot) if your using sausage
handful of turkey pepperoni sliced
pie crust shell
a splash of white wine
1 tsp
dried basil (fresh would work too)
1/2 tsp
red pepper flakes (optional)
1 pinch
oregano, dried

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a pot coat the bottom with some EV Olive Oil.

Add your onions and cook until they start to get golden brown. Stir occasionally.

Add dried basil and red pepper flakes stir to incorporate.
Push the onions off to the side of the pan and add your sausage.

While that is browning line the bottom of the pie shell with some of the cheese your using (save some to put on top of your meat mixture)
When the sausage is all browned mix with the onions and add the pepperoni stir for a few minutes.

Add your garlic stir into mixture and If your using the wine add it now and stir in the pan until it evaporates add your tomato sauce.

You want a fairly thick consistency.
Im not a big fan of oregano so I just put a pinch right over the cheese that is lining the pie shell.

Add your mixture into the pie shell put the rest of your cheese over the top of your mixture.

Put the other pie shell over and crimp the 2 shells together.

Put a slit in the top and put in the oven.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until your pie is golden brown.
