Meat Lovers Pizza Casserole – a family favorite!!! Lean ground beef, sausage, pepperoni, pasta sauce, mozzarella cheese, pizza dough and parmesan cheese. Can add your favorite veggies too! Everyone loved this! There weren’t any leftovers!! YUM!
My favorite food is pizza. I could eat it for every meal every single day. That being said, I am always thinking of new ways to make pizza. I don’t want Chicken Legs to get tired of having pizza! This Meat Lovers Pizza Casserole was fantastic! We both absolutely loved it!!
I used hamburger, sausage and pepperoni in this casserole. Feel free to add some veggies to the mix too!! The crust on this pizza casserole is on top. I used a can of refrigerated pizza dough and brushed it with some olive oil, Italian seasonings, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. CRAZY good!
