Pizza Pot Pie



I recently came across an appetizer for Hot Pizza Dip and it looked incredible. I love appetizers but I wanted to find a way to make a dinner out of it. So, I decided to make the dip and top it with a pizza crust. It was fantastic. The filling was pure cheesy deliciousness with a yummy pizza crust topping. I don't know why I didn't think to make this a long time ago!

Pizza Pot Pie

Ingredients:
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup pizza sauce
2 tablespoons chopped green bell pepper
2 ounces sliced pepperoni
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1 can refrigerated pizza dough (I made my own dough)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is pre-heating in a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, oregano, parsley, basil, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Spread mixture in the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese on top of the cream cheese mixture. Spread the pizza sauce over all. Sprinkle with remaining cheese, then top with green pepper, pepperoni and mushroom slices. Cover pie plate with pizza dough, seal edges and cut slits on top of dough. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
Note-I like to microwave the pepperoni for about 30 seconds to get some of the fat out before adding them to the filling.
