Recipe of the Week: Pizza Pot Pies

This recipe is loosely based on the following:

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/pizza-pot-pies-recipe/index.html

However, I changed it a LOT.

So here's the much easier and most likely just as yummy

Pizza Pot Pies

3/4 jar marinara sauce (I have used Bertolli organic tomato and basil as well as Trader Joe's basil and tomato.  We prefer Bertolli, surprisingly)
1 medium sized onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped/minced
2 links chicken sausage (I use Trader Joe's Vino & Formaggio...wine and cheese is gooooood)
pepperoni
1 cup (or more if you prefer) freshly shredded mozzarella cheese
pizza dough (bet you can't guess which brand I use...)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Drizzle olive oil in skillet and heat. Toss onion and garlic in and saute. Add sausage and cook until browned. Add marinara sauce and heat through.

Shred cheese and add to sauce mixture, then add pepperoni. Spoon mixture evenly into 6 10-oz ramekins. Separate dough into 6 equal parts and stretch over ramekins. Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until dough on top is browned.

Rating from me? YUMYUMYUM
Rating from A? "this is really similar to my mom's lasagna" (very high praise)

It's a winner! And I feel like with either canned tomatoes (to make homemade sauce) or jarred sauce on hand, you could pretty much throw anything in there with them and make it a pizza pot pie!
