USE YOUR SLOW COOKER TO MAKE A TERRIFIC MEATY PIZZA

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.

  1. Pizza in a crock pot? Who’d a thunk? 🙂 Now we’ve got to try this with some Rhodes dough. Thanks for the idea!

  2. I make so much in my crock pot and I told hubby I was making this on Sunday night and he gave me the strangest look. I love proving him wrong. hehehe Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I’ve pinned your post to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board

    • 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.

      Blessings,

  3. 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.

    • 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,

  4. 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!

  5. Ok, I had no idea, you could make pizza in a crockpot, but seriously going to try this the next time we make pizza, because it looks so easy to do. Huge thank you for sharing, I have pinned and will share all over. Thanks Diane and hope you are having a wonderful weekend now 🙂
