We liked it but hate the name, "in the pot" so my daughter wants to call it something like Fiesta Pizza.

I went ahead and added 8 ounces of our fav pepperoni chopped in medium sized pieces and browned it with the sausage. I then drained all the meat on paper towels before putting it in the crock pot with other ingred. Turned out really good. I served it with Asiago cheese because we like the flavor.

Yes how much pepperoni and Johnsonville Ground Sausage. Is it a pork sausage or Italian? I gave it an average because I haven't made it yet.
