Slow Cooker Pizza
Slow cooker pizza, you say? Did you know you can make pizza in your slow cooker? Yes, you can! It’s so easy and no heating up your kitchen during those hot summer days. Using refrigerated pizza dough from your local supermarket makes this recipe come together in a snap. It’s surprisingly crispy, crunchy and bubbly delicious!
Spray your crock insert with cooking oil spray. Press the refrigerated dough in the bottom and up the sides.
Spread sauce, meat, and cheese evenly over the dough. We did half pepperoni and half cheese only. (for my daughter)
Cook on low setting for about 2 hours.
Remove carefully and serve. How easy is this meal? Just look at that crispy browned crust and the ooey gooey cheese on top. To make it easier to remove (which I didn’t do) make 2 heavy-duty foil handles. Long enough to hang out of the slow cooker and about 5 inches or so wide. Place the foil handles in the crock in a criss-cross before placing in the pizza dough. I didn’t have that much trouble removing the pizza it was just a little awkward.
- 1 can refrigerated pizza crust
- 1/3 pizza sauce (your favorite)
- 12 - 15 pepperoni slices
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Spray oval slow cooker with cooking spray.
Unroll pizza dough. Place pizza dough in slow cooker; press in bottom and about 1 inch up sides.
Spread pizza sauce evenly over pizza dough. Top with half of the pepperoni and cheese. Repeat with remaining pepperoni and cheese.
Cover the top of the slow cooker with 2 layers of paper towels and place the lid on top; cook on Low heat setting 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until crust edges are golden brown and cheese is melted.
Remove from slow cooker, cut and serve.
My slow cookers is the larger oval type. I do not have experience with this recipe in a deeper round type slow cooker.
