We love this on a chilly day. A big bowl warms you right up, and the leftovers freeze well. I first made this recipe one day when I decided I didn't enjoy making pizza crust—I just put the pizza in a bowl instead! —Marilouise Wyatt Cowen, West Virginia

"I doubled the beef, pepperoni, italian seasoning, and added a can of chili beans, some cayenne pepper and chili powder. Set on low in crockpot for 8 hours. Perfect! All the flavors warming up together all day made for a very flavorful dish."

"Very good. Added a pound of bulk sausage meat and used a can of chili with beans instead of the kidney beans."

"I'm glad I tested this recipe-I honestly felt that the recipe could've been more flavorful! I used ground turkey instead of ground beef for health reasons & browned the turkey in 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a large saucepan. I had substituted a 24-oz. jar of Marinara sauce since I didn't have pizza sauce. I'd omitted the tomato sauce, but used the Italian stewed tomatoes, kidney beans, water, salt, Italian seasoning, 1 WHOLE green pepper. I substituted a 3-oz. summer sausage from Hickory Farms since I didn't have pepperoni on hand. This was good and I did enjoy it! Thank you for sharing! ( Please note that it WAS NOT the ground turkey needing more flavor!) delowenstein"

"4 out of 5 of the people living in our household enjoy this chili. The other one doesn't eat ground beef, so she doesn't count."
