Deep Dish Pizza Bowl




1 tbsp olive oil
12 tsp fresh chili pepper, minced
1 can (14.1 oz) diced tomatoes
12 bell pepper, chopped
14 tsp dried oregano
1 sausage, cooked
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 fresh basil leaves, torn or chopped
14 tsp kosher salt
14 tsp black pepper
5 oz mozzarella cheese, sliced
1 12 oz parmesan cheese, shredded, divided
7 oz pizza dough
1 egg yolk, beaten




  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chili pepper and saute for about a minute. Add tomatoes, bell pepper, oregano, sausage, garlic, basil, salt, and black pepper. Stir and simmer for at least 5-7 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease the inside and a few inches around the top of the outside of a large bowl with olive oil.
  3. Line the inside of the prepared bowl with a single layer of mozzarella cheese slices. Sprinkle with 1/2 ounce parmesan cheese. Pour in sauce. Sprinkle with remaining 1 ounce parmesan cheese. Cover the bowl with pizza dough, leaving about 1 inch hanging over the edges. Gently press along the side of the bowl to seal in the filling. Brush with beaten egg yolk. Place the bowl on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes. Carefully invert the bowl onto a serving plate. Run a knife around the edge of the bowl, if necessary, to loosen the crust and remove the bowl.
