Crock Pot Pizza Casserole

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

It’s always hard to get an appetizing picture of a crock pot supper and this was no exception but this casserole is really a kid pleaser! I often make a gluten free version of it so will be including that in my instructions below. This is another freezer meal to crock pot so it saves time all around.

Pizza Casserole - from freezer to crock potThis is one of the regular meals in my freezer meal rotation so I make two or four of these recipes at a time. The recipe below is for one meal, but if you want to make several to freeze, then multiply the ingredients accordingly.

2 cups of cubed ham
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
10 oz. can chopped mushrooms
28 oz. tomato sauce
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

2 cups small pasta

To make this into a freezer meal, mix all the ingredients except for the pasta in a large resealable freezer bag. Put 2 cups of pasta in a medium sized resealable freezer bag. Seal both and staple them together. Lay flat in the the freezer.

On the day you want to serve it, thaw, put the ingredients from the large bag into the crock pot and cook for 4 hours on low. Cook the pasta on the stovetop and stir into the casserole just before serving.

To make this gluten free…

Be sure that you use gluten free ham. Much of the ham sold contains fillers that include gluten so be careful about this. Use gluten free pasta. This recipe is very adaptable to those on gluten free diets and we enjoy it just as much with the gluten free pasta.

  1. That was so easy and perfect for park day. I dumped everything but cheese and pasta in and we went to the park. When I got home, I stirred the cheese in and cooked the pasta. Presto. Yummy dinner. It sure tastes better than it looks, but you warned us. I wasn’t sure about the ham, but the dish tasted like cheese pizza with a hint of pepperoni.

  2. Having the ingredients was great..but no where on this page does it give instruction on when to add certain things or if you just put it all together. nor the heat setting for the crockpot and for how long…i am going to try anyways but just a suggestion to maybe make that information available

    • Maybe you just missed the cooking instructions. It says to cook everything except the noodles for 4 hours on low and then add cooked pasta just before serving. Hope you like it!
