Topsy Turvy Pizza Pie

Andy Anderson !


I want to thank Deb & Maggie for giving me the idea for this dish by directing me to a video from a Chicago pizza parlor. I don’t have the original recipe, so this is my take on a pizza potpie.

The presentation on this dish is absolutely awesome, as you are going to see.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

2Chef’s Note: This is an interesting way to do a pizza. I got the idea from Deb Crane, and Maggie… and they posted videos from the Chicago pizza place that made these famous. This is my version of the dish.
The whole idea is to put all your ingredients into an ovenproof bowl, and drape the crust over the bowl. Then, after it bakes, you invert, and remove the bowl.
And you have Pizza in a bowl.
