Crock Pot Pizza - One of my favorite dishes to take to dinner with friends

One pound of Hamburger
One pound of Hot Italian Sausage
Three jars of Spaghetti Sauce (I like Bertoli)
8 ounces of (or More) grated cheese (I use Costco’s 4 cheese mix, liberally)
1 Onion chopped
1 Green Pepper chopped
1 Red Pepper chopped
½ pound or so of Mushrooms chopped
1lb Ziti

Remove casings from sausage and brown with the hamburger, stir to crumble and mix.
Drain grease and move the cooked meat to a bowl.

Fry the Onions, Peppers, and Mushrooms till soft, and add to the bowl with the meat.

Add one jar of Sauce to the bowl and mix.

Cook the Ziti in salted water and drain

In your Crock Pot Pour some sauce and put a layer of cooked Ziti on it, Spoon a layer of the meat over it and top with some of the grated cheese.

Do this until you use up all of the sauce, Ziti, meat, and cheese.

You can make the layers as thick or thin as you want.

End up with a layer of cheese on top.

(Thinner layers use more sauce you may not need the third jar of sauce)

Turn your Crock Pot on high for 20 to 30 minutes then turn down to low until the cheese is melted.

Sounds tasty but how is this anything like pizza? Sounds more like Crock Pot Lasagna.

There are people who don't like lasagna?

Sounds good. Love Costco, even bought our cars through them - when folks ask me what I drive I tell them a vintage Kirkland.

Have never seen the 4 cheese mix. Haunt the cheese area, oh well, gotta look harder.

Take care.

If you add some fennel seed it would definitely taste like pizza!!

Tis the season for crockpots - thanks for the recipe - pizza/lasagna/ - whatever it is I'm making it!

Okay, this was good but I suck!! I don't think the cheese behaved right. Don't get me wrong, it tasted great, could have used some salt and pepper in the cooking (although I could have missed that in the recipe). Overall the taste was great, the look was a mess
