This pot pie not only has a pizza-flavored filling, but a whole mini pizza baked right on top.
Pot pies are always fun, and this one’s got classic pizza flavors, but to take it to the next level, how about topping it with a mini pizza?!
That’s the idea in these pizza-topped pot pies. It totally makes sense to do it this way, because you're already topping your pot pie with pizza dough. Might as well throw a few extra pizza toppings on there!
It’s a really fun idea that almost creates an illusion in your head. You think it’s just a deep dish pizza at first, but then you start digging and find out the pizza is only skin deep – and the treasures that lie within are more like a thick pizza stew.
These pot pies are fun and super easy to make, and would be a fun switch for your next pizza night!
First you brown up the ground beef and remove it from the pan. Feel free to use sausage for this if you prefer.
Onion and peppers go in next.
Add the beef back in and pour in the tomatoes.
Then get ready to start filling the bowls!
Use a slotted spoon so that you have extra sauce to top the pizzas with.
Stir in a bunch of cheese before adding the tops.
Stretch out the biscuit to fit the container perfectly.
Press the dough against the side of the bowl.
Then cheese and pepperoni.
These were way tastier than I had expected! It was really fun diving deep into the pizza crust to get the piping hot filling on the inside. The meaty tomato sauce was great as a filling, but you could really go crazy with your favorite pizza toppings.
