  • 1
    2 tablespoons Olive Oil
    1 pound Sweet Italian Sausage (removed from the casing)
    For the Filling: Heat a large saute pan over medium heat.  When the pan is hot, add the olive oil and the sausage.  Brown the sausage, breaking it up as it cooks, then remove it from the pan and set it aside in a mixing bowl.
  • 2
    1 small Yellow Onion (sliced thinly)
    2 small Red Bell Peppers (sliced thinly)
    2 Garlic cloves (minced)
    pinch Chili Flakes
    8 ounces shredded Mozarella
    8 ounces grated Parmesean
    1/2 cup Basil Leaves (torn)
    In the same pan, add the onions and peppers with a big pinch of salt and cook until the vegetables start to break down.  Add the garlic and the chili flakes and cook for a minute longer.  Add the pepper and onion mixture to the bowl with the sausage.  Mix together and allow to cool.  Once the filling has cooled, mix in the mozzarella, parmesan, and basil.

    Store-bought Pie Dough
    To make the pie, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil a 8-inch cast iron pan. Preheat the pan over medium heat while you roll out dough.
  • 4
    Bench Flour (for dusting)
    your favorite Tomato Sauce
    8 ounces Ricotta Cheese
    Salt and freshly ground Pepper
    1 Egg Yolk whisked with 1 tablespoon Water and 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
    On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into large rounds, larger than the pan. Fit the dough into the cast iron pan and carefully press into edges.  Spoon some tomato sauce on to the dough, spreading it evenly, and top with the filling. Sprinkle the cheeses over the filling. Place the other piece of dough over the top and flute the edges to seal. Score the top and brush with egg wash and sprinkle with parmesan.
