After having a similar dish at lunch in Little Italy years ago, this is the end result of many months of experimenting. I have had more than a few people offer me some serious money to make this pie for them, it is that good!

    olive oil

How To Make sausage and artichoke pie

  • 1
    Using a large frying pan, sautee the onion and artichoke hearts in olive oil until fragrant, add chopped garlic. Cook garlic almost to the point of browning.
  • 2
    Add the crumbled sausage, using wooden spoon to break up and separate during cooking. Add salt, pepper, bell seasoning and grated cheese. Cook sausage thoroughly.
  • 3
    When sausage is fully cooked, turn off heat and stir in shredded mozzarella cheese, enough to 'hold' the sausage and artichoke mixture together, usually an entire package of cheese does the trick.
  • 4
    Fill the pie crust level with the top of the crust with mixture, sprinkle top with grated and shredded mozzarella cheeses.
  • 5
    Bake at 400 degrees until thoroughly heated, about 20-30 minutes. Let cool before slicing.
