- Today I'm gonna show you how to pep up your pizza game with these pizza pot pies. Let's get started. We're gonna have to roll out some pizza dough, and we're gonna do this in two sizes. We're gonna start with our big ring cutter, and these are gonna go into the bottom of our muffin tin. I've already sprayed our muffin tin with some cooking spray, so nothing's gonna stick. And we'll start cutting. This is gonna line the bottom of each muffin tin. All right. And get these guys into the bottom of our tin. So we're gonna switch out our dough, start with a fresh ball for our tops. We keep it wrapped up in cling film or covered with a slightly damp cloth just do the dough doesn't dry out, 'cause it will dry out fast. I've got a smaller ring, and we're gonna cut some more circles to go on the top of our pizza. Okay, so with these smaller tops, and we'll get these guys ready to go for when we fill our little pizza pot pies. Let's grab our toppings. Okay, so today I've got a bunch of veggie toppings, but you can fill these with whatever you like. If you prefer Hawaiian pizza, just veggies, no meat, all the meats, you go for it. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna start with our little cups here, and we're gonna spoon in some tomato sauce, with some shallots, going with some pepperoni. And again, you can do these any way you like. If you prefer Alfredo sauce instead of tomato or pesto. This is really a great dish to customize. All right, now that we've got our veggies in, let's go in with some cheese. And we're just gonna finish 'em off with some seasoning. I've got some dried oregano and some red chili flakes. All right, and it's time to top them. And we're gonna carefully add our little tops to our pot pies. Just give it a little quick roll. We're gonna place them over the top and pinch the pizza dough together. It'll sort of peel up off the sides of the muffin tin, because, remember, you put in cooking spray, so it's not gonna stick. We're gonna give them a little vent at the top so that some steam can escape so they don't explode as they cook. And then about halfway through cooking, we're gonna take them out, brush them with some olive oil on top, rotate the pan, and stick 'em back in to finish cooking. And these guys are ready to go into the oven. Okay, our pizza pot pies are out of the oven and piping hot. We're just gonna pop this one out here. And as you can see, the color is beautiful and golden from that little brush of oil we gave them halfway through cooking. But let's dig in. There you go. Pizza pot pies. All right, this looks amazing. I'm digging into one of these. You should go make these for your next party. They're super customizable, delicious, and easy. Go get cooking.
