Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

I stood in front of my overflowing cupboard yesterday trying to figure out what to make for supper.  I started pulling stuff out and pretty soon I came up with this.  Sorry, no pictures because we ate it all already, and Hubby made fun of me for taking pictures of our food last time I blogged a recipe I made.  :)  But believe me, it looked good and tasted better.

Just to warn you, all measurements are approximate since I'm morally opposed to measuring while cooking.  Just kidding.  But I really don't like measuring.  I'm that lazy.  Also, I'm assuming that you have at least a basic knowledge of cooking.  If you don't, I'm not judging you.  But you should probably google "how to boil noodles" and some other basics before trying my "recipe"

I started with approximately 6 servings of spaghetti pasta.  I wanted to use elbow noodles, but we're out so...I broke the noodles into thirds before adding them to the boiling water.  When the noodles were al dente, I drained them and dumped, ahem, gently placed them in a bowl.  I added a jar of pizza sauce and half a can of olives.  Next time I make this, I'll probably throw in the whole jar of olives.  Then, I mixed in pepperonis.  Hormel's Pepperoni Minis are perfect for this.

 Let me just stop here and say that this casserole is completely customizable.  You can mix in whatever it is you normally like on your pizza.  Of course, if you're the only one in your house that likes supreme pizza and the others gag at the idea of anything more than pepperoni on theirs, I would recommend respecting their opinions or you might get sick of this casserole after eating it for four days straight.

Next, I put the whole shebang in a greased 9"x9" pan and sprinkled the top liberally with mozzarella cheese and more pepperonis.  Because you can never have too many pepperonis.  I baked the casserole in a 350 degree oven until the cheese on top was bubbling. 

And that's it!  Easy as pie, pizza pie that is!


  1. BTW - my outfits were a huge hit - I absolutely LOVED them...when I get pictures on FB,I will take your page (if I can figure out how to do that...).

    1. Posting pictures on a FB page is pretty easy :) Just click where you normally would for writing a status or comment and it'll give you the option to upload a picture. Can't wait to see!


Thank you for your comment! I read and appreciate every one.
