You can thank a tantrum for this tasty sausage pizza pot pie recipe. When I made quick chicken pot pie a few weeks ago and served it to my 3-year-old, he said he wanted some of the spinach. I told him there was no spinach, and it turned into a 15-minute crying fit with him moaning, “I wanted spinach!” over and over. This is why I’m weary.

Before you high five me for having a kid who loves spinach, let me just say that he doesn’t even like it. This tantrum was a result of 3-year-olds being completely irrational (well, mine at least). He has thrown fits over getting the wrong color cup, which side of the car he needs to get in, regretting his ice cream flavor choice, and the list goes on. I personally don’t think any of these minor inconveniences are worth crying your eyes out for nearly a half hour, but I’m not three.

Anyway, while I was eating my pot pie and listening to, “I WANTED SPINACH!” on repeat, I thought to myself that I would add spinach next time. Since I love the sausage, spinach, and tomato combination, I came up with this pizza pot pie idea instead of just adding spinach to a classic pot pie. I have to say that I liked this version even better, you know, because it has cheese. I hope you enjoy this easy dinner recipe too and that it leads to zero dinner tantrums at your house!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch deep dish or 12″ shallow pie pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Spray a 12″ skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Add onion and sausage, and saute, crumbling meat as it cooks, until sausage is mostly cooked through.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Stir in half of the spinach, and cook until wilted. Stir in remaining spinach and drained tomatoes. Gently stir and cook until spinach is all wilted.
  4. Drain sausage and spinach mixture well, and then pour into pie pain. Spread cubed mozzarella over the top, and gently press cheese into the meat.
  5. Stir together egg, milk, biscuit mix, and Italian seasoning. Spread dough over the top of the sausage and cheese. (Note: This dough is a good amount for a 9″ dish but doesn’t completely cover the 12″ dish as shown here. You can double the egg, milk, and biscuit mix if you are using a large pan and would like more coverage.)
  6. Sprinkle parmesan over the top, and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until top is brown and cheese is melted. Allow to stand for about 5 minutes before serving.

“This is why I’m weary” – oh Andi! What a handful! But I do love the spinach in this dish :) This looks like such a delicious dinner!

Thank you, Cate! Both of my kids are a handful in their own way, but I don’t know what I’d do without them ;)

This sounds amazing! I love pot pie and pizza. I would have never thought to combine them but it’s a genius idea!

Thank you, Jenn. Three year olds are very cute and funny, and you will love having one. In the meantime, enjoy not having one ;)

This is such a great idea, Andi! I love that you not only added spinach to the pot pie but you made a pizza pot pie instead! I have a feeling my three year old would not be throwing any fits if I served him this! It looks fantastic!

I bet your son is a great eater, Kelly. You are so sweet, and I can only imagine what a great mom you are!

Pizza as a pot pie is so flippin’ smart, Andi! My kids would love this! And kids throw tantrums over the craziest things. My daughter (18 months) had a complete laying on the floor, kicking-fit of a tantrum because I took away a bar of soap that she was trying to scarf down today! Kids…

How dare you keep her from eating soap, Ashlyn!? These kids are putting us through the wringer for sure. Glad you like this recipe. Thank you! xo

Thanks for the preview of my life in the not-so-near future! I have a CRAZY picky 15 month old, so when he learns to talk, I’m sure it will get really interesting! This looks like a delicious dinner, and I for one would love the spinach ;)

I hope your son gets less picky as he gets older. The opposite seems to be true for my boys! I’m waiting for the next phase with my oldest when he actually wants to eat a variety of foods like a normal person. Hopefully the wait won’t be too much longer! ;) Thank you, Denise!

YUM! I definitely love the spinach, sausage, tomato combo! And I hope your 3 year old decides to like spinach when you serve this :)

Thanks, Beth! My guys actually eat spinach raw better than cooked. They will eat it in a salad and think it’s lettuce, but it’s hit and miss whether or not they eat cooked spinach in a recipe. They like to keep me on my toes ;)
