Amazing Lasagna Pizza Recipe:
Since we’re all at home, doing a lot more cooking from scratch right now it seemed like the perfect time to share a new pizza recipe! Our Miracle Pizza Dough Recipe is one of our most popular and is perfect here. You can also use our Thin Crust Pizza Dough if that’s your preference. The toppings are what really sets this one apart anyway! This amazing lasagna pizza recipe was a huge hit with my family, especially the kids and of course they can help you make this, including the dough, it’s foolproof.
Speaking of the dough! If you click the links above it will take you directly to the actual pizza dough recipes that you need for this pizza. Those posts are full of info and have process shots to walk you through. A little hand holding if you will, in case you haven’t made pizza dough before, or just like to have photos as a reference. Whichever you choose, they’re both super easy, no rising and waiting involved. You can also make extra and freeze for later! So, be sure to check those out. If you have a ball of frozen pizza dough from your grocery store, that works just fine for this recipe too!
Let’s talk about what’s on this pizza and substitutes:
- I used ground Italian Sausage, and it’s probably the best if you have any on hand. Otherwise, you can use ground beef or even ground pork sausage. Sweet, mild, or hot sausage is fine.
- For the cheeses, I used shredded mozzarella, shredded parmesan, and dollops of mascarpone because that’s what I had on hand. I know not everyone keeps mascarpone around so feel free to sub it out with dollops of cream cheese, ricotta, or even cottage cheese!
- I do have a recipe for homemade Pizza Sauce that’s great, it makes a decent sized batch and you can freeze if you want to make extra. Otherwise, just use your fave marinara or pizza sauce from the store.
- I did use all dried herbs because that’s what I always have in my pantry. Dried oregano and basil sprinkled over the garlic butter crust and the entire pizza really make this heavenly. You can always use fresh herbs if you have some!
