One-pot meals seem to be a wintertime trend: I guess the thought of having a big pot steaming and simmering on a warm stove isn’t so appealing in muggy July! Now take this recipe for Pizza Pot Pie (via oh joy!)- it’s a one bowl recipe that I think would be perfect for a quick summer meal. I might not bring out the crockpot as much in June and July, but cooking dinner doesn’t have to be any more complicated than throwing the ingredients in a bowl, cooking, and eating!
What you’ll need…
Pizza Dough (pre-made is fine!) and loose flour for kneading
Vegetables of your choice (mushrooms, shallots, olives, peppers, etc.)
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Optional: meat toppings
1. Sauté shallots or onions, mushrooms, and any other vegetables you’d like in olive oil until cooked but not wilted.
2. Coat the bottom of an oven-safe bowl with olive oil. Alternate cheese, vegetables, sauce in the bowl.
3. Top the bowl with a flattened piece of pizza dough and let hang over the edge. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes until dough is golden.
4. Invert the pizza onto a plate and enjoy!
