Make pizza night even easier with this One Pot Pizza Pasta. A dish the entire family will love and ready in 30 minutes! Dinner cannot get any easier or more delicious.
This One Pot Pizza Pasta is a cheesy, full of your favorite pizza toppings pasta meal. What is great about this dish is that you can make it your very own, with your favorite pizza toppings. Add in green peppers, bacon (my husband’s favorite), or just make it with just plain ole cheese. This dish is simple to make it your own.
Serve with some garlic bread or simple easy bread sticks and viola, dinner is served. Little time in the kitchen and well it’s like pizza. So your whole family will be going back for seconds. The first time I made this the kids picked out the sausage and mushrooms so when I made it again, I doubled the pepperoni and stirred in some mozzarella cheese before topping it with more cheese and placing it in the oven. Huge hit. That was for the kids, I made a second skillet for my husband and I with extra mushrooms, next time I will be adding bacon. Yum!
One pot dishes are not only quick dinner, but they also make and easy clean-up with just one dish. Less dishes equals a happy mom or dad, if your house is like ours.
