Try this slow cooker pizza casserole for a family dinner. It is easy to make and full of the flavors of pizza. This crockpot recipe is ideal for busy days.
My family loves pizza in all forms. We make regular homemade pizza, skillet pizza, pretzel pizza, breakfast pizza, pizza balls, pizza sandwiches, and pizza dip. Today I’m sharing a pizza casserole recipe. One of our favorite lasagna recipes is similar to pizza since it includes pepperoni, pizza sauce, and alfredo sauce.
Lasagna takes a little work to make because you have to boil the noodles and then assemble all of the layers. This Slow Cooker Pizza Casserole is so easy to make and the crock pot does the work!
Pour pasta sauce and alfredo sauce into greased slow cooker.
Add one pound of uncooked ziti and 1/2 cup of water.
Top the noodles with mini pepperoni (or a 1 1/2 cup mixture of pepperoni and sausage).
Pile on a bunch of shredded cheese.
Mix together the sauces, ziti, pepperoni, water and cheese.
Top with pizza sauce.
Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours, until the pasta is tender. Mine was ready in three hours.
If you love saucy pasta, add some more pizza sauce to the top.
Stir in the sauce and the pizza casserole is ready to eat.
Or take things to the next level…sprinkle the pizza casserole with more shredded cheese, a little oregano and grated parmesan.
Replace the lid to allow the cheese to melt.
