After watching Pizza Paradise the other night. I knew what I was making for dinner. A Meatball Pizza Pie. It’s not very difficult to make. I figure others might enjoy it, or take the idea and use their own favorite ingrediants.
I came across some bakeware at a local Anique show. A nice baking dish. I wanted to use it when I got home. A pizza pie came to mind. After a quick run to the grocery store, and pressed for time, this is what I came up with. I hope you try it.
1 Container Pillsbury pizza dough
1 jar favorite tomato/pizza sauce
1 pkg Mozzarella Cheese
1 jar Caramelized Onions and roasted Red Peppers, drained.
1 pkg sliced Mushrooms
Strech out pizza dough and cut in 1/2. Coat bakeware with a little Pan. Place 1/2 the pizza dough in the bottom. Poke it with a fork a few times and pre-bake for about 10 minutes at pkg recommended temperature.
Saute mushrooms in a little butter and garlic powder if you have it. Add the jar of onions and peppers to heat up.
After pre-baking, spinkle mozzarella cheese on bottom. Spoon tomato sauce over cheese. Cut meatballs in 1/2, or not. and place in pie. Spoon mushroom, onion and peppers over and between meatballs. Top with a little more sauce and some Parmesan cheese.
Place other 1/2 of pizza dough on top, sealing the edges.
Top with more sauce and cheese. Back in the oven for about 15 minutes or so.
I love when I come across a new piece of cookware
