Easy Weeknight Casserole

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!!

How to Make Pizza Casserole

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!

You can assemble this casserole ahead of time and bake it when you are ready. I would suggest waiting to put the pizza dough on top of the casserole until right before baking. I find that refrigerated doughs don’t rise as much if you let them sit in the refrigerator overnight.

    1. It is hard to find where I am as well. I have not made this yet but refrigerated crescent roll dough would work as well. I use it to top a lot of casseroles like this and its delicious.

    1. I have not tried this casserole with crust on the bottom and top. You can certainly give it a try. If you do, tell us how it turns out.
