Reviews for Spiral Pepperoni Pizza Bake
"I used Italian sausage instead of the ground beef, great!!!!"
"This was very distasteful. The top was delicious but the bottom was simply too plain. I wish I would have mixed the pasta mixture with the meat mixture like another reviewer stated. That pasta tasted raw! I could not finish my plate, although I hadn't eaten all day. But there's plenty of leftovers so that's a plus for this recipe."
"Great recipe! I've made this many times after having found it in the Taste of Home Magazine years ago. The only change I've made is cutting the milk content to 1 1/2 C to make it less runny."
"Delicious! 1 lb of meat is enough. We used ground turkey. Turkey pepperoni is yummy. Onion not necessary.- Theresa"
"had nice taste"
"Very good! It was like lasagne & pizza exploded together. Will make again"
"Very good, nice for leftovers."
"First time making this recipe, this was easy to make and very good. I cut the recipe in 1/2, & baked in a 8x8 glass dish.now that I know how good it is I will make the full amount. it looks great and tastes better. It's like pizza married lasagna."
"I almost didn't make it because everyone kept mentioning kids loving it-we don't have kids, so I thought maybe adults didn't like it. Glad I didn't listen because me and my husband really liked it. I didn't put much pepperoni on my side of pan because I don't care for it but I still loved the rest of it. I did only use 1 lb hamburger & 3/4 box pasta (and halved egg/milk mixture) but it was very tasty. I'd definitely make it again"
