Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

Make homemade deep dish pizza the easy way–in a casserole dish!

Ingredients

1
(13 ounce) Pillsbury™ refrigerated pizza crust
1 1/2
cups pizza sauce
2 1/2
cups of your favorite cheese (I like using a mix of provolone, mozzarella and cheddar)
1/3
cup Parmesan cheese, grated
12
whole pepperoni (optional)
1/2
pound cooked ground spicy Italian sausage (optional)

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray or olive oil.
  • 2 Unroll the pizza dough, and press it into the bottom and halfway up sides of prepared baking dish.
  • 3 Spread the dough with some pizza sauce and, if using, sprinkle the cooked spicy Italian sausage over the top. Cover the pizza with cheese and then top with pepperoni (if using). Sprinkle the Parmesan over top.
  • 4 Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with more Parmesan if desired. Serve immediately.

Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

As prepared by Half Baked Harvest,

Ditch delivery and make this easy, gooey, cheesy deep-dish pie instead.

Oh my gosh. I know, I know. Deep dish pizza! 

It is just insane. Insanely good and insanely easy. It honestly took me just five minutes to prepare and then into the oven it went. FIVE minutes! 

The ease of this pizza casserole is pretty amazing, but it’s the taste that gets everyone. I'm pretty sure there is not one person on the planet that will not fall in love with this dish. 

You can customize it to your liking by adding spicy sausage or other meats, your favorite veggies, or a variety of cheeses. Or just keep it super simple like I did and top the pizza with some pepperoni and lots (ok, tons) of cheese.

All right, so gather up your ingredients. You will need just three basics: Pillsbury pizza dough, pizza sauce and cheese. The extras are all up to you, but just make sure if you are using any meat that it is pre-cooked.

Roll the dough out into a greased casserole dish and push the dough up the sides a little.

Spread on the pizza sauce. If you are using any meat (other than pepperoni), add it now.

Add some pepperoni and toss the dish into the oven. Told you the prep time was quick!

Start checking after 15 minutes. You want the dough to be nice and soft and lightly golden.
