Instructions for preparing Pizza Pot Pie

Step one:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Take a large bowl and combine one cup of flour with undissolved yeast, sugar and salt. Start adding warm water and oil. Mix for about one minute or until well blended. 

Step two:

Now, gradually add remaining flour to make a soft dough. The dough should form a ball and will be slightly sticky. Knead, adding additional flour if necessary for about 4 minutes, until it is smooth and elastic. 

Step three:

Now, divide the dough into four equal-sized portions. Set aside after making it circular. Cover the entire inside of the ramekins with slices of mozzarella cheese. Then, add browned Italian sausage, sliced mushrooms, and Canadian bacon.

Step four:

Start stirring together the pizza sauce, garlic, and one teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Pour over the other fillings in the ramekins. Cover each with pizza dough to fit over the entire top of it and press to seal edges to the outer rims properly. 

Step five:

Place ramekins on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until crusts are golden brown. Once the pizza is fully cooked, remove from the oven and immediately serve it hot. Remove ramekins and garnish pot pies with remaining Italian seasoning and fresh basil and serve.
