Introduction: Personal Pizza Pot Pie
I always try to make food different and fun for my kids. Today I came up with the personal pizza pot pie. It takes about a half hour from start to finish and the kids can help.
Step 1: The Bottom
I bought 3 pot pie disposable pans for $2. Rub some butter or margarine into the pan. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and drop it into the pan. Give it a bit of pizza sauce and spread it around . Lay in some cheese and we have the bottom done!
Step 2: The Middle
My kids like Hawaiian pizza so so placed in a ring of pineapple, a slice of ham ripped up, then another layer of pineapple and ham, then more cheese. Feel free to mix it up and put whatever ingredients you want into it. I added sausage, mushrooms and onion to mine.
Step 3: The Top
Roll out another piece of dough and place it on top like a pie shell lid. Pinch the lid and the base together around the pan. Then I take the flat of a knife and rub it against the edge of the pan to sever off the extra dough. Poke a few holes in it with a knife to allow steam to escape and then put a layer of sauce and a layer of cheese on it.
Step 4: The Cooking
I preheat the over to 350 degrees. I have no idea how long it takes to cook. I just keep impatiently opening the oven door to look at it and I know it is done when the crust around the edges is starting to go a nice golden brown. By cooking it at this low temperature the heat has time to get inside to melt the cheese.
