Reviews for Slow Cooker Pizza in a Pot
"Husband said it's a keeper. I added mushrooms and black olives. Sub 1/2 lb sausage for 1/2 lb burger. Only used 2 1/2 cups pasta. All else the same. Great recipe!"
"A very quick and easy meal. I substituted salsa for the tomato sauce and added some pizza seasoning to the ground beef as it cooked."
"I did not use the pepperoni. Instead I followed the suggestion of substituting pork in its place. It was delicious."
"out of this world"
"Good, but to me it just tasted like a basic pasta and meat sauce. The cheese melted into the ground beef so it really wasn't noticeable or able to be tasted by the time the whole thing heated. Definitely wouldn't call this Pizza in a Pot."
"It was easy to make and the family loved it!!"
"Love this recipe! I've been making it for years."
"Soooo yummy! Love this one!"
"I made this today. I added our favorite pizza topping in 1/2 cup measures. Mushrooms, sliced green olives, bacon. I also added the el dente pasta near the end of the slow cooker process. About 20 minutes before we were ready to eat.Fabulous recipe idea. Thanks!"
"I tweaked this a tiny bit to accomodate what I had on hand and baked it because I made it after work. Definitely a keeper!!"
