Baking a pie shell for chicken pot pie?

I have a recipe for an easy chicken pot pie but it only calls for pie crust on top. I want pie crust on the bottom as well since it is my favorite part! My question is, do I need to bake the bottom crust first to make sure it gets done before I put the filling and top crust on? Recipe only calls for it to be baked fo 25-30 minutes. Thanks!

    I never pre-bake the bottom crust. It gets a little soggy, but I think it would probably do that even if I did bake it first,

    No need to prebake. Just put it in the oven.
