Crock Pot Pizza

With a hot and steamy forecast and a house full of company, I needed some quick and tasty meal ideas that wouldn’t add any extra heat to the house.

My solution? My beloved crock pot.

(Seriously, I love my crock pots, especially in the summer months!)

Tonight’s menu includes an old family favorite, crock pot pizza. It’s an easy, no fuss layered noodle dish that is a favorite with both kids and adults.

Crock Pot Pizza

1 (12 oz.) package noodles (rotini or elbow macaroni works well) cooked and drained.
24 oz. of pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce
1 pound of ground meat (hamburger or sausage), browned and drained
2 cup mozzarella cheese
2 cup cheddar cheese
1 package pepperoni

Spray crock pot liner lightly with cooking spray. Then start layering beginning with one third of the noodles, then one third of the sauce, followed by a third of the meat, both cheeses and pepperoni.

Repeat the layers 2 more times.

Cook on high 30 minutes, then reduce heat to low and cook for another 1 hour or until the cheese is melted.

I made mine ahead in the early morning when it was still cool and put it in the refrigerator (I have a removable crock pot liner) until I need it in the late afternoon.

Then I will just put it on to heat and later I will serve it to my table full of hungry children. A no fuss, no muss pizza favorite without the heat of an oven. Yum!

  1. Have company coming. It is hot up here on the Prairie and am going to do a crockpot pizza, too! Dessert will be homemade chocolate pudding made in the microwave to keep the heat index down in the kitchen!
    Stay cool!
