Pizza Macaroni & Cheese

My grandma made this for us once when she came to visit and I never forgot just how good it was. Since my kids love anything with pepperoni and cheese, I thought they'd enjoy it just as much as I did. —Juli Meyers, Hinesville, Georgia

    Made this for dinner and it was surprisingly good! Added sliced black and green olives to the toppings. Will definitely make again. To be clear, the deluxe Mac

    Delicious & creamy. I mixed bell peppers into macaroni as well as mini pepperoni, the dry cheese & sour cream. I topped it with tomatoes & pizza sauce plus more pepperoni & Italian cheese. This was so good. I can hardly wait to make it again. This is the best of all pizza casserole recipes.

    This was delicious and so easy. I "oopsed" and didn't pay attention to the mac & cheese box size so ended up using 2 regular size boxes. Just cut the sauce and tomatoe ammounts in half and cooked in an 11 x 7 pan. Great the next day too. Thanks!

    Loved how quick and easy this was to make. It was a big hit with the family too. I may try spicing things up next time with jalape?os.

    My kids loved this. Made as directed except for green pepper. No one likes them. I also make mac n cheese casserole with my home made chilli. Kids like that also.........so now I have two same (but different taste) casseroles to put into rotation.

    Simple to prepare and leftovers taste great. I like this recipe because it is easy to customize to my family's taste. I chopped the pepperoni into quarters and microwaved it on some paper towel for 30 seconds to remove some of the fat before adding it to the top of the casserole. I will definitely be making this again.

    My family liked this because we could customize it to our own pizza topping preferences. It's a hearty meal and the leftovers the next day tasted even better!Combining mac n cheese and pizza, who would'a thunk!

    Tried this tonight and we both liked it. I am bringing the leftovers to work tomorrow.
