This Pizza Pierogi Casserole is comfort food at its best!! We cleaned our plates and went back for seconds. We absolutely LOVED this simple casserole. This is a super easy weeknight meal. It also makes a GREAT freezer meal. You can even divide the casserole into two 9-inch pans and bake one and freeze one for later.
I used Italian sausage in this meat sauce. If you aren’t a fan of sausage, you can swap it out for ground beef or ground turkey. Either will work great! We topped the casserole with some pepperoni and olives. Feel free to add all of your favorite pizza toppings to the top of the casserole – green peppers, onions, mushrooms. Anything goes!
