Deep Dish Spaghetti Pizza Pie. It’s totally, completely, exactly what it sounds like. Putting all three carb-o-licious favorites together in one crazy dinner recipe. This recipe came when I remembered back to a spaghetti pie recipe my Mom made when we were kids. The crust was spaghetti noodles held together with cheese and topped with sauce. I might have taken this inspiration and turned it up a little…okay, a lot. I mean, just look at this comfort conundrum.
Pasta, cheese, peppers, sausage, sauce, mushrooms, and more cheese….
I took my memories of Mom’s spaghetti pie, doubled down on pasta and added pizza toppings. I know, I apologize. It’s just not nice to dash everyone’s dreams of fitting into those old jeans. But, really, by now, you should know that I count the steps from the fridge to the oven as my “fitness” for the day.
Hi, I’m Joanie. I love cheese.

As mentioned in the video, I used Mezzetta’s Roasted Garlic and Caramelized Onion sauce. I discovered it at the store a few weeks ago and used it in this recipe because of the extra punch of flavor it has that rounds out this dish.
I hope you have as much fun making this dish as you do serving it. I guarantee your people will love it! Tag me on social media if you do make it. I’d love to see how crazy you make your version!Print
A pie with a spaghetti crust, topped with pizza toppings.
- 16 oz spaghetti, prepared according to package directions and drained (do not rinse as that will prevent the noodles from being able to adhere to one another)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 16 oz mozzarella (divided)
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 tsp oil
- 16 oz sweet Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled, divided
- 8 oz white mushrooms, sliced, divided
- 1–25 oz jar Mezzetta Roasted Garlic and Caramelized Onion Tomato Sauce
- Preheat oven to 375F
- Saute the diced bell pepper in a saucepan with 1 tsp oil until slightly softened
- Combine 2 eggs and 1/4 cup of milk in a bowl and vigorously whisk so as to break up the yolk
- Combine the egg mixture, 8 ounces of the shredded mozzarella, the sautéed bell pepper, half of the mushrooms, half of the sausage and 16 ounces of prepared spaghetti pasta together in a large bowl.
- Spray non-stick spray onto a standard 9″ pie plate. Fill the pie plate with the pasta mixture, smash to fit.
- Bake the “crust” at 375F for 20 minutes until the pasta is “set’ into a solid form.
- Then, top with sauce, remaining sausage, remaining mushrooms, remaining mozzarella
- Bake for an additional 10 to 15 min at 375F until the top is brown and bubbly, like pizza
