Crock-Pot Slow Cooker Meaty Pizza

Have you ever tried to make homemade pizza in your crock-pot? Yes, It can be done, and it turns out great. The crust even gets crispy.

We often have a pizza night at my house.  I normally make homemade pizza dough and everyone gets a portion to make their own person pan pizza or calzone.  I decided to try an easier version of homemade pizza in the crock-pot.  This time I used a store bought can of refrigerated pizza dough and placed it in the bottom of the crock-pot.  I then added our favorite toppings.  I was so excited it worked!   You know how much I love my crock-pot.  It is just so much easier to toss everything together and let it cook. After trying this crock-pot pizza, I may never order pizza again nor will I bake a homemade pizza in the oven.

Why Use Your Crock-Pot/Slow Cooker?

I use my crock-pot for different reasons during different seasons.  During the summer, the crock-pot cooks without heating up the entire house. Since I live in the south, this is a huge benefit.  In the winter, I enjoy so many soups like homemade chicken noodle, chicken tortilla, gumbo, chili, beans, and much more that are easy to prepare using a crock-pot. The best advantage of using the crock-pot is when you get home from a long, exhausting day, dinner is ready.  It makes me feel like the modern-day June Cleaver when I say “Dinner is Served.”  I almost want to start singing “Be our guest, Be our guest” from Beauty and the Beast.  So, I know I am little obsessed with my crock-pot, but I cannot help it when I smell all the enticing, alluring smells coming from the kitchen with such little effort.  So, be my guest and start taking advantage of all the benefits of using your crock-pot.  The main purpose for recipesforourdailybread.com is to encourage families to cook together, eat around the table together, and share God’s Word together.  For a busy family, this can be an extremely difficult challenge. Try your crock-pot more often and see if it will help with this challenge.

    Tammy,

    It sounds crazy, but it truly works. I love this crock-pot slow cooker pizza. Make sure to use my homemade handles to lift the pizza up. The first time I made the pizza I could not get it out of the crock-pot.

    L.D.,

    I made this pizza twice. The first time I did not use anything to lift the pizza out. Pizza cooked and worked fine, but it did not come out pretty. I decided to make me some handles the second time to lift the pizza out of the crock-pot. It worked great!

    I had not tried parchment paper. It would not stick and it you can definitely cook with it. Parchment paper is also pretty strong. I not sure if it will work, but I might try it next time. If you try it, let me know how it worked.

    Blessings,

    Could you substitute parchment paper for the foil? I never thought of making pizza in a crock pot but you can roast whole chickens, 5 pounders work nice and you can bake bread also. The chicken takes 3-4 hours on high and the bread takes 1 1/2 – 2 hours on low.

    Lydia,

    Thank you for commenting on my crock-pot slow cooker pizza. I was so excited that it worked when I tried to make pizza in the crock-pot. I think you would have to cook it on high for the sides to get crispy. I fixed this pizza two times, but both times on high. If you try it, please let me know how it worked.
    I truly appreciate you supporting my blog. If you do not already please consider following my blog. I send out a monthly newsletter with cooking tips and even a giveaway every once in a while. I would love for you to follow my blog.

    Wow! This looks just so delicious! I have only just bought a slow cooker recently and am trying to find tasty ways to use it. This is perfect! How long do you think it would take if I cooked it on low? Thank you!
