Pizza burger pie may very well be the best comfort food recipe you will ever make. A deep dish pizza bread crust holds this ground beef pizza together. It’s warm and cheesy and packed with Italian flavor.
I feel like when I stumble across a recipe that is one of the best things I have ever made, according to my sons, then I MUST share it! Isn’t that what this site is all about?
This pizza burger pie was hard for me to photograph, and I admit the pictures didn’t turn out the best. But the taste! A HUGE home run for MOM! My family LOVED it!
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
For the Filling:
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Tbl minced onion
1/2 tsp dry Italian seasoning
3/4 cup tomato paste
4 oz canned sliced mushrooms (optional)
Prepare filling and set aside.
In medium mixing bowl, combine flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. In saucepan over medium heat, heat sour cream, water and shortening to 120-130°F (shortening does not need to melt) then add to flour mixture. Add egg. Mix by hand until somewhat smooth.
Spread into greased 9 or 10-inch pie pan to make a crust. Spoon filling into crust; sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes, or until light golden brown. Serve immediately
