Deep Dish Pizza Lasagna combines two of your favorite dinner obsessions. This is where pizza and pasta lovers will find heaven on a plate. It’s easy to customize the toppings too!

What kind of toppings can I include in pizza lasagna?

Just like traditional pizza, you can mix and match toppings and customize your pizza lasagna however you’d like it. Don’t like olives? No problem! Leave them out. Want to add some sausage? Go go for it! Just make sure all your toppings like sausage are pre-cooked if necessary, just like you would for pizza.

What if I don’t have a deep dish 9×13 pan?

This recipe requires a deep dish 9×13 pan. If you do not have a deep dish 9×13 pan, you will only be able to create 2 layers of ricotta and toppings instead of 3 as indicated in the recipe. This will leave you with a total of 3 layers of pasta rather than 4.

Can you use no boil lasagna sheets in this recipe?

Yes, you can use no boil lasagna pasta sheets in this recipe. No boil lasagna has a slightly different texture than regular lasagna pasta sheets. If you are using no boil pasta, skip step 1 and immediately proceed to step 2.

Lasagna Pasta Shortcut

We’ve given you the best hack ever for your lasagna noodles and included it as part of the recipe. No boil lasagna noodles work, but they often end up a bit of an odd texture and absorb too much liquid in the recipe. Instead, we use regular lasagna noodles and STILL don’t boil them. All you have to do is place them into a container and pour hot water over them. Let them soak for 30 minutes and they’ll be tender enough to use in the recipe. Don’t worry, they will finish cooking in the oven.

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Ingredients
  • 1 pound lasagna noodles
  • 4 cups marinara
  • 30 ounces ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 ounces sliced pepperoni
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 1 diced green bell pepper
Instructions
  • Place lasagna noodles into the bottom of a pan. Pour hot tap water directly over the noodles, making sure the pasta is completely immersed in the water. Let them soak for 30 minutes, then drain and discard water.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese with egg,  and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Refrigerate until ready to assemble lasagna.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a deep 9x13 pan.
  • To assemble, spread about 1 cup of marinara sauce in the bottom of the prepared pan. Place 4 noodles on top. Spread with ⅓ of the ricotta cheese mixture. Top with ¼ of the mozzarella cheese. Top with 1/3 of the pepperoni slices, 1/3 of the mushrooms, 1/3 of the olives, and 1/3 of the green peppers. Spoon about 1 cup marinara sauce over the toppings, then sprinkle with ¼ cup parmesan cheese.
  • Repeat layering two more times to create three complete layers. To finish, place a final layer of pasta, topped with another 1 cup of marinara sauce to cover the pasta. Top with remaining mozzarella, toppings, and Parmesan cheese. 
  • Bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes. Serve hot.

If using oven ready noodles should i still soak them?

No. But because you are using oven ready they will absorb a lot of the liquid in the recipe and may have a funky texture, but that’s just the nature of using no boil lasagna.

Hi Rachel do you have a recipe for the marinara sauce you use as store bought sauce in the UK tends to be exceptionally sweet and tasteless.
Thank you Naomi

Tami

Could this be frozen and finished in the oven later?

Yes. It’s just like the frozen lasagnas at the store (but this one actually tastes good). It’s quite a long baking time from frozen though. If you want to make it ahead, it can safely sit in the fridge, unbaked, for 48 hours.

I love some of these recipes. My husband is really hooked on this recipe. He loves anything that has “lasagna” in the title.
