My friend, the Invisible Woman gave me the idea for this recipe. I’ll explain at the end of the post why I call her the Invisible Woman.
She said she made a cornbread crust and layered on sliced tomatoes and other veggies. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any tomatoes the night I decided to make this. I still want to try the veggie version, because I think it will be grand. Especially with garden fresh tomatoes.
This version is a fast way to make homemade pizza. It made the kids happy too.
This is my third time try at this recipe. It’s not that I didn’t like the first two tries. Quite the opposite, actually. We like it so much that it’s worth making over and over. This time I decided to try one great big pie, instead of the individuals that use ramekins. Not everyone has 6 ramekins or wants to go to the trouble to make them individually.
I’m happy to report that this is my favorite version and it’s also the easiest. It has an easy homemade crust, but I used store-bought pizza sauce. Italian sausage and mozzarella make it as meaty and cheesy as you would expect from a Chicago style pizza.
I first wrote about Pizza Pot Pies several weeks ago. They were very good, but I was a bit disappointed with the crust. So I gave it another try, this time using frozen bread dough for the crust and the results were really good. In fact, they were the requested dinner for my son’s birthday the other night.

I made all my kids happy with this Stromboli. And they gladly ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. The recipe is from my sister-in-law and it’s a good one. It uses frozen bread dough, so no yeast or kneading required. The filling can be tailored to suit your tastes. I would have piled on the veggies, but the kids voted for pepperoni.
