Chicago Pizza Pot Pie – Quick Tips

Blind bake your crust – Pre-bake the dough for a few minutes before adding the filling. This helps prevent a soggy bottom.

Don’t overfill – Resist the urge to pile on the toppings. Too much filling can lead to a messy overflow and a soggy crust.

Get creative with the crust – Make mini pot pies using muffin tins or ramekins, or try a calzone-style fold for a handheld treat.
