Pizza Pot Pie

Jump to Recipe

While the saying goes “You eat with your eyes first”…. sometimes you just have to embrace the concept of “Ugly Delicious” because will this pot pie might not be winning any blue ribbons at the fair for being the prettiest – it is packed with excellent flavor. Pizza Pot Pie is so good – your family will ask for it again!

I went with the classic “Supreme” pizza toppings for my pot pie – but, as with any pizza, you could do your favorite combination of toppings. I just wouldn’t suggest going with just pepperoni, as that might end up being a bit excessive. You also want to think about water content of things you put in, which was specifically why I didn’t do mushrooms or olives. Since I wanted onions and bell pepper, I didn’t want to go too far. But feel free to change it up.

It is important that you use deep pie dishes, otherwise you will have far too much filling. If you only have regular pie dishes, you will want to pair down what you put in the filling as well as lessen the time. You could also buy the deep dish pie crusts that come in a disposable tin (like I did!) from the freezer section. Makes clean up much faster.

When it comes time to serve this up, you just have to accept the fact that it is not going to hold together like a piece of dessert pie or cheesecake. It will be messy, but it is so super yum, you are not even going to care. Letting it cool for a little while will help it firm up some to make it slightly easier to serve. This quick pizza sauce is also great for dipping mozzarella sticks or bread sticks in or even just for a quick pasta sauce for lunch.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
