Here’s what you’ll need to make pizza casserole in the slow cooker:

This casserole serves 12, I love that because we have enough for dinner for the whole family and then the leftovers get eaten for quick lunches throughout the week. If you want to cut it in half to serve 6 that’s very easy too and the recipe will come out just fine.

You’ll need ground beef, you could also use ground chicken or turkey if you wanted to do that! Along with the beef we will use garlic, onion, pasta sauce, sliced mushrooms, garlic powder and dried oregano.

Add in some pepper to taste, wide egg noodles, sliced pepperoni, shredded cheddar and mozzarella and you have the best dinner of the week!

If you have picky eaters in the house you can adjust the ingredients as needed. You can leave out the onions, the pepperoni, and anything else you think your family won’t like.

Everything comes together nicely and nothing stands out so I think it would be great as written but feel free to make adjustments, this is an accommodating recipe.

How to make Crock Pot pizza casserole:

In a  large skillet or Dutch oven, brown beef, garlic  and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

Add the spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, salt, garlic powder, oregano and pepper to the ground beef mixture and stir well. 

Spray a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker with non-stick spray or use a slow cooker liner. 

Spoon half the sauce and beef mixture into the slow cooker. Top with half the noodles, half the pepperoni and 1 cup of each cheese.

Repeat layers. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours until heated through and the cheese melts.
