Cookin’ in the Crock: Crockpot Pizza

When we were engaged, Jared made sure that his mom passed on to me one of his very favorite recipes!  Considering that it was a fairly simple crockpot recipe, I was pretty sure that I would enjoy making it!  Crockpot Pizza has become a favorite around this Matthew household for its simple preparation and yummy taste!

Crockpot Pizza

1 lb smoked sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1-2 cans mushrooms  (Ok, so I leave this part out…mushrooms….ewww)
3 oz sliced pepperoni
16 oz pizza sauce (I use spaghetti or tomato sauce, depending on what I have on hand)
10 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
10 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 box rigatoni noodles, cooked

Coat the bottom of crockpot with a little bit of sauce.  Layer half of each ingredient in this order: sausage, onions, peppers, noodles, mushrooms, pepperoni, sauce, and cheeses.  Repeat layers.  Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours.  Be sure to keep the noodles covered with sauce so they don’t become dry and crunchy.


Enjoy, and Happy Cooking!!!

  1. Not sure if you are familiar with Heavenly Homemakers, but she has the most fantastic recipe for homemade pizza sauce…it is just tomato sauce with some spices. Here is the link:

    Tomato sauce is one of those things I can find really cheap, and then the spices in it are practically no cost, so this is by far the cheapest pizza sauce ever! Plus it is soooo yummy and better for you! Anyway, thought you might like to try it. This recipe sounds so good! I’ll have to give it a try!
