Pizza Pot Pie

We studied patience this week in the Living Beyond Yourself Bible Study by Beth Moore. It was such an amazing week, we learned how God uses those who "rub us the wrong way" to polish out our imperfections. Beth even said we should welcome the challeges of those annoying people. We also learned that patience with people is a priority over patience with circumstance. I am loving this study, if you ever have the chance to take this class you should!

Last night I made Pizza Pot Pie. I got the idea from Giada's cookbook, then I made them my own. I have always liked the insides to pot pie, but I do not like pie crust. These are made with pizza dough, which I love!

Pizza Pot Pie
Pizza Dough- either use store bought dough, or you can make your own. I made the recipe from my January 27th blog. Half of the recipe makes 3 pot pies, and a whole recipe makes 6 pot pies.
1 cup meat- I used pulled Rotesseiere chicken, but you can use pepperoni, canadian bacon or sausage.
1/2 cup diced fresh mozzerella
3 Tb Parmesan Cheese
1 14 oz can whole tomatoes
3 Tb Olive Oil
2 sticks of rosemary
1 tsp dry oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper
Veggies: I used 2 Mushrooms, 1/2 diced carrot, 1/4 cup broccoli chopped, 1 shallot sliced, 1 garlic clove. Choose whatever you want, I think zucchini, bell pepper, onion, green beans, etc would be good.

After chopping up your vegetables and cheese, cook the shallot or onion and carrots in 2 Tb of oil.

Once the onions are tender add the mushrooms and garlic. Cook for 2 mins.

Add tomatoes with juice and broccolli, use your cooking spoon to crush the tomatoes.

Add the chopped rosemary leaves, salt, pepper and red pepper.

Simmer for 5-10 mins until thickened.

In a large bowl mix meat, tomato sauce and mozzerella.

Roll out dough and cut out circles to fit into 3 ramekins. Spray ramekin with PAM before pressing dough into and around the inside.

Use a knife to cut off the extra dough around the outside of the ramekins.

Fill the inside of the ramekins with the tomato mixture.

Roll out the remainder of the dough and cut out 3 tops for the ramekins.

Pinch the tops of the dough around the sides. Cut a slit in the top of the dough.

Brush olive oil on top of the dough and sprinkle with 1 Tb of parmesan on each pot pie.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 mins.

No only did they look pretty, they tasted really good! I think these would be impressive to serve at a dinner party, guests would love them!
