Curt's Italian Stuffed Pizza Pizzone Pie

Curt's Italian Stuffed Pizza Pizzone Pie

This was a guest post I did back in February this year....
I call it Pizzone Pizza
This is the name I picked on the guest post,  Pizzone, but it fit.

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.

This will really mess with New Yorkers who, insist on folding their pizza. The crust are already touching. What will they do?
