All the flavors of pizza (but without the carby crust) cook together in the slow cooker for an easy family-friendly meal idea!
1 lb. ground sausage
1 lb. ground beef
6 oz. bag pepperoni slices
4 cups mozzarella cheese
8-10 slices provolone cheese
1/2 cup mushroom, sliced
1/2 cup green peppers, chopped
1/2 cup onions, diced
32 oz. jar Rao’s sauce (or any keto-friendly marinara)
1)In a large skillet, brown sausage and ground beef. Once browned, drain and set aside.
2)Using an 8-quart Crock-Pot slow cooker, start by adding 1/3 cup of Rao’s sauce just to cover the bottom of the Crock-Pot. This helps any ingredients from sticking.
3)Start with about a cup of the beef/sausage meat as the first layer. Then add a layer of pepperoni, a layer of vegetables (if you’re using any), and finish with a layer of mozzarella cheese.
4)Repeat these layers by starting off with pizza sauce, then meat, veggies (optional), and cheese. Continue layering until you have used all toppings, ending with the shredded mozzarella.
5)Add sliced provolone cheese to the top. Cook on low for 4 hours.
6)Serve and enjoy! As an option, you can sprinkle with parmesan cheese and/or red pepper flakes for a spicy kick!
