This has to be a family favorite in my house. I love making this and it is so easy to layer and cook. This can also be cut in half and baked in a 13x9x2 inch baking dish. I love pizza and my crock pot…what a better meal than this!?
Makes: 10 servings
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 pound ground beef
1 pound bulk italian sausage (old folks or bob evans brand)
1 garlic clove, minced
4 cups shredded cheese (mozzarella, pizza blend, mexican blend, etc.)
Toppings for your pizza:
- Bell Peppers
- choose any toppings you wish
1 small jar pizza sauce 8-10 ounces)
1 jar spaghetti sauce (24 ounces)
3/4 pkg of kluski egg noodles
1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
Cook Kluski noodles according to package directions and set aside.
In a large skillet, cook and brown ground beef and italian sausage over medium heat, drain fat…
Return cooked meat mixture to skillet, add pizza sauce…
add Italian Seasonings and minced garlic, reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. While the meat mixture is simmering, line the crock pot with a crock pot liner or use cooking spray, and set it to high. Cut up pizza toppings if needed and set aside…
The first layer will be some of the meat sauce (enough to thinly cover the bottom of the crock pot)…
1/2 of the cooked noodles…
meat sauce mixture…
2 cups (1/2 of a 4 cup bag) of shredded cheese…
Re-layer in the same order. The last layer should be shredded cheese…
Cover and cook on high until top layer of shredded cheese is melted and bubbly. The time duration (about 1 – 1 1/2 hours) depends on your crock pot.
Please enjoy! I actually got this recipe from a friend of mine…years ago and has been a BIG hit ever since! Thanks Stacey U.!
