Lasagna Deep Dish Pizza

Lasagna Deep Dish Pizza

A very deep, deep dish pizza filled from top to bottom with layers and layers of lasagna! Can you imagine anything more decadent? All my food dreams come true in one slice! Or maybe two. Or three?

When I originally had the idea to fill a deep dish pizza with lasagna, two things came to mind immediately. One, I needed to do this in a springform pan because it had to be very deep dish. Two, I needed to get thin lasagna noodles so that I could make a cross hatch on top, because I have been saying for years, deep dish pizza is actually a pie. I had to special order this pasta called mafalde, but it was totally worth it!

Let’s make the pizza dough!

The pizza dough is laminated, meaning it has layers of fat in it that cause the final result to be flaky. See, I told you deep dish pizza is pie.

This thing is really all about layers! Roll it up with the butter and let it rise again.

Making the pasta sauce

I just made my favorite simple meaty tomato sauce. I don’t actually have a recipe on my website at the moment but I am sure you have a favorite.

Floating in the sauce here is basil, parm, and the rind from the parmesan cheese.

Baking the lasagna deep dish pizza

Bake it in the oven at 400 for 45 minutes. After it comes out of the oven, let it cool 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

You could make this with regular lasagna sheets if you prefer. Other than that, I think it’s fun to make this recipe your own. Use your fave sauce! Use your favorite Dough! you can use store bought dough too if you want, it just won’t be as buttery!

Ingredients

  • pizza dough linked above
  • 1 pound malfade pasta
  • 2 cups meaty tomato sauce
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1 cup grated parm
  • 2 cups shredded low moisture mozzarella
  • 10 slices provolone

Instructions

  • Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick.
  • Grease a springform pan
  • Put the dough into the pan and press into the corners. Cut off excess dough.
  • Cook the pasta in boiling water about 3 minutes less than the package says. You want it to still have a bite to it.
  • Add sauce to the bottom of the pizza first, then lay out the pasta. All 4 cheeses next. Then repeat until you have 4 layers.
  • For the top layer of pasta, place about 6 noodles on the pizza horizontally. Fold half of them over at the center and place a noodle vertical. Unfold the pasta so you end up with every other piece of pasta going over or under the vertical peice. Continue to form the lattice top. Check video to see more on how to do this.
  • Brush on an extremly light coating of sauce (just the thin liquid from the sauce, no chunks) and sprinkle on a small amount of parm.
  • Bake at 400 for 45 minutes until the dough is cooked.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the springform pan. Cut and serve. You may need scissors to cut the crunchy noodles on top.

  1. My lasagna in the oven was smelling a little like pizza and my husband and I wondered about making a lasagna pizza. Of course I wanted to see if someone had already done it and that brought me here. I will have to try it as this looks amazing! Thank you for posting it.
