Pizza Pie

Dad’s pizza pie is a family favorite. The recipe was passed down to him from Grampy, and I suppose I should learn to make it because Nick loves it!

It’s best served with a cold beer while watching Penn State football games. And last weekend it warmed us up after a long drive from New Jersey.


  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 jar Ragu sauce
  • 1 box hot roll mix
  • EVOO
  • New York Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Colby Long Horn cheese, shredded
  • pepperoni
  • Giorgio mushrooms
  • green peppers and hot peppers (preferably from the garden)


  1. Caramelize onions over medim heat. Add ground beef and brown. Add Ragu and simmer.
  2. Prepare hot roll mix according to the instructions on the box. Let it rise and pat it into a stone baking dish with EVOO. Prick with a fork.
  3. Top dough with meat and shredded cheese and arrange pepperoni and veggies on top.
  4. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes.
