Thank you for stopping by to see this easy to make Slow Cooker Meaty Pizza.
Have you ever tried to make homemade pizza in your crock-pot? Yes, It can be done! The crust even gets crispy.
We often have a pizza night at my house. Typically, I make homemade pizza dough, and everyone gets a portion to make their person pan pizza or calzone. I decided to try an easier version of homemade pizza in the crock-pot. This time, Instead of the homemade dough, I used a store bought can of refrigerated pizza dough. It laid perfectly 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 Slow Cooker Meaty 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 the 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 crockpot, 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.
