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!
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!!!
