Quick and Easy Italian Tomato Pie

Tomato PieIngredients

1 lb frozen bread dough
2 cups of pasta sauce (a sweet canned sauce like Ragu Robusto! Parmesan and Romano works well)
1/4 cup olive oil 
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (use a good Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese — you’ll be glad you did!)
  • Thaw bread dough and allow it to rise. Punch it down and let it rise again.
  • Liberally grease a deep-sided cookie sheet or roasting pan with olive oil. Knead the dough on a lightly floured board and roughly shape to the shape of the pan. Place the dough in the pan and let it rise again.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread the dough out to fill the pan and poke holes in the dough with your fingertips.
  • Spread the olive oil on top of the dough. Add tomato sauce and spread evenly. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the sauce. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 20 minutes or until the crust starts to brown and the bottom of the pie is golden brown in color. Remove the pie from the oven and let it rest on a cutting board for 15-20 minutes before serving.
