How to Cook Cheesy Ground Beef Pot Pie

  1. For the ground beef mixture:

    Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the pancetta, and stir a little. Add the onion, then cook and stir until tender.

  2. Add the tomato paste and stir a little, then add the ground beef. Break it into smaller pieces, stir gently, and cook it until browned.
  3. Season with the salt and pepper, add the tomato sauce and stir for a minute or so. Also, add the white wine, stir just a little, then remove from heat.
  4. For the pot pie:

    Line a 9-inch diameter baking dish with one pizza dough, add the halved lasagna sheets, then layer 1/2 of the ground beef mixture.

  5. Continue by adding 1/2 cup Bechamel sauce and then 4 slices of gouda, which you coat with 1 tablespoon pesto.
  6. Uniformly spread the grated low moisture mozzarella, add other 4 slices of gouda, and layer the remaining ground beef mixture. Add the remaining bechamel sauce, the remaining slices of gouda, and cover these with the remaining pesto.
  7. Top with the grated parmesan and cover with the second pizza dough. Seal the formed dough pot by binding both doughs’ rims together.
  8. For the egg wash: add the egg and milk to a smaller bowl and mix them.
  9. Coat the top dough with egg wash using a brush. Decorate it by drawing shallow lines, then poke holes in it using a fork. Bake for 55 minutes at 380⁰F/190⁰C.
