I thought I crossed over from an amateur kitchen cook to a fancy self proclaimed chef when I made croissants.

But making this pie, I now realize there really is no end to learning skills in the world of cooking! And I also realized I lack the “gentle touch” when it comes to handing doughs! 😛 After a few mishaps, I was able to produce a decent looking Spaghetti Pie!

And don’t even doubt whether it tasted good. I don’t cook something unless I anticipate its tastiness and convince myself that it is well worth my time and effort! 😉 This one did. Really did. I did make a few mistakes that I’m hoping to rectify the next time I make this pie. And also, YOU get to learn from my mistakes. All in all, a pretty sweet deal!

The Spaghetti filling can be anything you wish. You could use any kind of pasta or sauce to with it. Just make sure its not too soggy. I decided a very basic onion & tomato marinara would be apt for the pie.

Spaghetti Pizza Pie – THE RECIPE

PART 1: The Pizza Base

Grease your pie / tart pan with oil / butter.

Preheat oven to 200 C / 400 F

Start with some Pizza Dough on a well floured surface.

Roll it out to a thick, large circle. (it should be larger than the pie plate)

Starting from one end, place the rolling pin and lift the dough & start rolling it with the pin. Do not roll completely. Leave 4-5 inches of the circle hanging out.

Lift the rolling pin.

Place the open end of the dough on one end of the tart / pie pan.

Roll out the dough by rolling the pin outward such that the dough sits in the tart pan.

Using your hand and the edge of the tart pan as a guide, tear away any excess dough & press the dough on all edges.

To avoid the dough from tearing, make sure you have a thick roll of dough. If the dough tears (mine did since I rolled too thin) cover the torn spots with some dough.

With a fork, make marks all over the dough.

Brush the entire surface with egg wash or melted butter.

Bake at 200 C for 8 minutes or until the base is partially cooked. (I used oil & hence mine didn’t brown)

 

PART 2: The Spaghetti Filling
As the base is baking, cook Spaghetti or any kind of pasta, set aside.

Heat oil in a pan with high sides. Add onions, garlic. Fry till onions are golden brown.

Add chopped tomatoes. Cook for 5 minutes continuously stirring to reduce the tomatoes to a mush.

Add the spices – salt, pepper, oregano & dried parsley.

Mix well & cook further till it reduces to a pulp.

Add the cooked Spaghetti (or pasta)

Mix well.

 

PART 3: Final Assembly

To the baked base, add the spaghetti filling

Add some onions on top for extra crunch (optional)

Mix breadcrumbs with grated cheese (breadcrumbs gives an additional crunch. But feel free to leave it out)

Sprinkle the cheese & breadcrumbs mixture all over the top

Bake at 200 C for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Slice & Serve Hot!

Tips & points to remember

  1. You can make the pizza dough at home or buy from the stores.
  2. Always roll out the dough to a thick circle. Since there’s a lot of filling, a thin crust wouldn’t be able to hold its structure completely.
  3. Any kind of Pasta & sauce can be used for the filling
