Deep Dish Pizza Buns
Recipe type: Pizza
Cuisine: Italian
We love a good deep dish pizza. But instead of making the dough we've done a cheats version and filled a bun with the same goodness. Brushed with garlic butter, these are incredibly delicious!
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 4 sausages removed from casing
  • ½ cup chopped pepperoni
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion grated
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 5 Hot dog buns, hollowed with a 2 cm edge
  • Sliced mozzarella cheese
  • Grated parmesan
  • ¼ cup garlic butter
  1. In a large pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage meat. Sear and break apart with the back of a spoon. When cooked, add pepperoni and cook through. Remove and let cool slightly.
  2. In a pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened and translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper, oregano, and, sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer until thick.
  3. Arrange the buns in a tray. Top each with mozzarella and press down. Fill with a layer of sausage and pepperoni mix. Top with another slice of cheese & more sausage mix. Top with a layer of tomato sauce and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
  4. Brush outside with garlic butter.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes until cheese is melted, enjoy!
