Curt's Italian Stuffed Pizza Pizzone Pie

Tuesday, February 7, 2012
Not sure where my son picked this name Pizzone, but it fit, so that's what it is (smile)

I love that it's kind of a pie, top and bottom crust, it's more like a pot pie pizza~

Depending on what you like the skies the limit and just a little each below is all you need in this pizza.

You will need to stuff your pizza :

  1 pound of homemade pizza dough or store bought
  parchment paper
  1 deep dish pie plate up to 10 inch max size
  1 tablespoon or more of your favorites chopped: olives, peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, escarole,  spinach
  1 cup of packaged or cooked meats: sausage, pepperoni, ham, capicola, meatball, steak, anchovies,  shrimp
 1 cup shredded mozzarella
 2 tablespoons grated romano cheese
 1/2 cup pizza sauce or tomato sauce

 On a large cutting board, cut dough in half. Roll dough out to fit the pie plate up to 10 inches. Line the  pie plate   with parchment paper. Place dough on the paper. Fill with your favorite filling and sauce. Roll the other half of the dough. Place on top of this dough. Press the edges lightly. They will cook together in the over.
Brush top with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
You can add spices to the top, garlic powder, parsley and oregano evenly would be my preference.
Bake on 400 degree preheated oven until browned on top around 45 minutes.
Serve with more sauce to dip in.

  4. Hey I like this pizzone! Molto originale. I get so hungry when I visit your blog!

  5. This pizzone does look delicious! The best part is that the breading is not real thick. After all, the filling is really what you want to get a bite of. This is a much easier alternative to making pizza. Well done! Glad to see more of Curts creations on your blog Claudia!

  6. Pizzone is the perfect name for that! Wow, it looks amazing, especially with all the goodies inside spilling out.
