We can't think of a better combo, tbh.
The cheese pull alone is worth making it for: Lasagna and deep dish pizza are arguably two of the greatest foods ever invented, so in honor of National Pizza Day, we're combining these two cheesy favorites into one delicious mash-up dish. It starts with a quick saute of pepperoni to give the easy homemade marinara sauce a base of savory flavor. Then the sauce gets layered between cooked sheets of pasta, a ricotta mixture, plenty of mozzarella, and then topped off with even more pepperoni! Cut to your guests going back for seconds...and thirds...and fourths...
For the sauce:
- 2 ½
ounces (about 25 slices) thinly sliced pepperoni
cup olive oil plus more for coating noodles
medium onion, finely diced
cloves minced garlic
teaspoons dried oregano
teaspoons dried thyme
teaspoon chili flakes
cup tomato paste
28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
14-ounce cans diced tomatoes in juice
teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
cup packed fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
For the rest:
- 1 ½
pounds ricotta cheese
1 cup finely shredded parmigiano reggiano cheese
cup finely chopped parsley
teaspoon freshly grated black pepper
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
pound (3 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese
pound fresh mozzarella, sliced into thin rounds
