Tammy's Review: 

This recipe is wonderful! The recipe ingredients and instructions worked just perfectly, and the end result was a tasty dinner casserole. I have been disappointed with a lot of crock pot recipes I've tried in the past, but we all agreed that this one was yummy!!

It was also easy to make, served a lot of people, and didn't take too long to cook. The 3-4 hour cooking time makes it the perfect lunch to start before going away for the morning. We really enjoyed this dish! My rating: 10/10

Great!

This recipe was so simple and easy to put together. I was thrilled that I could make such a good meal without having to watch it closely. I loved that I could put it in a crockpot and continue with my day while it was cooking. I put it in for about 3 hours and it was perfect! My family loved it !

no where in the directions

one thing about this recipe i thought needs to be changed is this, and i am partly to blame, so as i was saying, no where did it say you need to cook the noodles before you put them in the crockpot in the instuctions... i only found it after it was together and warming up in the crockpot... i then looked at the ingrediants and saw where it said to do this

Easy

My family loved this recipe. One warning: only cook it 3-4 hours. Don't turn the crockpot on in the morning and go to work. Your crockpot pizza will be burned to a crisp. :)

Crock pot spaghetti is a hit!

My husband is a very picky eater. He loved this recipe. He asked me to "put that one in your favorite recipes book- honey". Easy to make and great tasting.

Delicious!

Since I first made this dish, it has been requested over and over again in my house. Although my crock pot is 4-quart, it was filled after just two layers* so I freezed the last layer to reheat another day.
*Confused by the imperial, rather than metric, unit of measure, I simply used the whole package of noodles ;)

a keeper

I made this tonight ( had to make Dh run out for ground beef!) I also did it in the oven instead and used some mushrooms too. The kids ( 1 & 3 yrs old) loved it too! YUM!

Very good!

I threw this in the CP right before church & was very glad I did. We ended up with unexpected guests for lunch and they were very pleased with what I had prepared :). They raved & asked for the recipe...and I pointed them here.

Yummy

Tammy,
I just wanted to say that this Crockpot Pizza was a BIG hit with my family. I served it with a salad and homemade dressing. The children all loved it. My hubby and I went on our monthly "date" to town to shop for groceries so we just got fast food. We will have some tomorrow.

My daughter Lindsay (alwaysHis324) gave me the address for your blog. Is that what I am on? I am so computer illerate, sorry.

I have been a mom for nearly 24 years and have ten kids. I read your recipes looking for some fresh, new ideas a couple of times a week. I find you a bit of fresh air to my old body. Although I cannot fathom how you do this site as well as all the things a young mom like you has to do each day.

Anyway, kudos to you and keep up the good work!

God Bless You!
Kasey

Loved it!

I found this recipe the other day and knew my dh would love it. The thing is, I was impatient and needed a meal for that night - yet I didn't have time to use the crock pot. So I simply changed it up a bit and baked it in the oven.

I used ground beef and some cut up sausage as my meat. I also added some chopped red pepper, and other spices to kick it up a notch. I used an 8X8 glass baking dish with TWO layers of the ingredients. I baked it at 350 degrees for about 30 min or so.

It turned out great! My dh loved the taste and my babies loved the noodles. My dh also did request I use the pepperoni next time (I just didn't have any on hand). Next time I will also cover the dish with foil to keep the noodles from getting too much of a "crust" on them - then it is too hard for my babies to eat.

Loved it, loved it! Thanks so much for posting!
