Open-Faced Spaghetti Pot Pie

Recipe provided by Rob D’Amico

I’ve never been to Chicago but I hear you have to check out Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder. They specialize in oven grinders (sandwiches) and something called a pizza pot pie.

When I saw the picture I was definitely intrigued and wanted to make this on my EGG. The first round I made it with the “normal” pizza ingredients: sauce, cheese and pepperoni, which was delicious! But when those were gone, I wanted to try something different.

4.5/5 (2 Reviews)


  • 1 slice of BelGioioso Provolone
  • Half bulb of BelGioioso Burrata Cheese
  • 1 cup of cooked angel hair pasta
  • 3/4 cup of homemade tomato sauce (you can use it out of a jar, if you have to)
  • 1/4 cup of BelGioioso Ricotta Cheese
  • Grated parmesan romano cheese
  • 1 egg
  • Chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Dough (1 lb dough ball will make 4 servings) King Authur Flour Dough



Big Green Egg
Basting Brush
10oz Ramekins


The ingredients list is for one ramekin. Each ramekin can serve 1-2 people, so make enough ramekins for the entire family. If you have multiple ramekins on the EGG make sure you separate them about an inch apart so the dough can rise without them sticking to each other.

Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 425ºF.

Spray a ramekin inside and out with cooking spray. Place 1 slice of provolone at the bottom of the ramekin. Start to layer by adding half bulb of burrata cheese, 1 cup of cooked angel hair pasta, 3/4 cup of homemade tomato sauce and 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese. Sprinkle with grated parmesan romano cheese, salt and pepper.

Now dust a surface with flour and roll out the dough into the shape of a pizza. Then cut out a circle 1 inch bigger than the size of the ramekin. Place the dough on top of the of the ramekin covering the food inside and make sure it hangs about half way down the sides. Brush the top with an egg wash and vent the dough with the tip of a knife.

Place in the center of the EGG and bake for 20-25 minutes. Once the pot pie is done, let it cool for a couple of minutes, flip and remove ramekin with a fork. Then top with extra sauce, grated cheese and basil.
