Crock Pot Pizza

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:

      Hi Lisa,
      I may have another option for you to try, I like to use gnocchi. I cook it according to package directions and then layer it on the bottom of my plate and top it off with the pizza mixture. Please let me know how you like it. (Gnocci is a potato dumpling, has the taste like pasta just made with potato instead.)
