Pizza Casserole

Pin It

This was so easy and so delicious. I don’t really know why I had never made it in the crock pot before. After all, when I would make pizza casserole for cooking in the oven it was devoured immediately.

Here is how I did it:

  • 1 pound of ground Italian sausage, browned and drained
  • 1/2 pound of ground beef, browned and drained
  • 1/2 large white onion, chopped
  • 8 ounce box of short pasta (rigatoni, penne or ziti), cooked… but undercooked slightly
  • (3) 14 ounce jars of pizza sauce´╗┐
  • 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 8 ounce package of sliced pepperoni, placed between paper towels and microwaved for a few seconds to remove all the grease
  • 16 ounces of shredded mozzarella cheese

In a large bowl mix everything together except for the mozzarella cheese.
Spray the inside of a 4 – 6 quart Crock-Pot┬« with non-stick spray.
Layer the mixture alternately with the shredded mozzarella cheese. I did three layers… ending with the cheese on top.
Cover and cook on LOW for 3 1/2 – 4 hours. If cooked for longer than 4 hours or on high it may burn.
Serve with your favorite breadsticks and a side salad.
This is a great meal to make on the weekends or days that I don’t remember to do anything for supper until around lunch time (I’m just saying it happens… not saying how often though (o: ).
