Crock Pot Pizza

IMG_0640

TGIF!! This has been a long week! And sometimes I just don’t feel like coming home and making dinner. So last night, we had crock pot pizza. My mom would make this when my brother and I started to get older and or schedules started getting crazy with sports and other things. Its great for a nice, easy comfort meal, that’s ready for you when you walk in the door.

I made this the night before, and had my husband put it in the crock-pot when he got home from school. Unfortunately this can’t be in the crock-pot for a long period of time or the pasta with become mush. But 4 hours on low will do the trick.

To make the crock-pot pizza, start by browning some ground beef. Once it is brown, add some diced onion, mushrooms, and green pepper, sauteing until tender. If there are any other pizza toppings you like add those too. Once the veggies are tender, drain the mixture, and add it back to the pan. Meanwhile, cook some pasta, until al dente, you don’t need to cook it all the way because it will get softer in the crock-pot when it soaks up some of the sauce. Add some pepperoni and 2 jars of pizza sauce to the beef mixture. Stir to combine. When pasta is done, add to the beef mixture. Put in crock-pot over low heat for 3-4 hours. About 15 minutes until you’re ready to eat, add cheese and cover to let it melt. Enjoy!!
