Pizza was on the menu until I came across this 3 Meat Pizza Casserole Recipe. I didn’t feel like dealing with a crust, and this looked really good and it made a hit! This recipe has a excellent blend of flavors. This is a simple recipe-but there is some prep time involved. Graduation is right around the corner, this would make a great dish for a graduation party. The recipe says to let it set for 5 minutes before serving. My oldest boy took one look at it-it did not make the 5 minutes. Give this one a try you wont regret it. Enjoy

  1. Cooked this tonight and it was a big hit however; I could not fix all of it into a 9×13 pan. Next time I am using a size larger! This is an easy recipe to change up using your favorite pizza toppings and ingredients!

  2. I make it all time usually after I make spagehtti I will have left over sauce, It’s just the 2 of us, I use the wide noodles, mozerella cheese and peperoni and candian bacon, in a 8×8 and it fits perfect in the mirowave. if it was just me I would add mushrooms and black olives maybe even green peppers, You can use whatever pizza toppings your family likes.

  3. I made this with 20 oz of cheese ( 8oz was fat free), uncured pepperoni, whole grain pasta and added some chopped spinach. It was DELICIOUS. It’s a keeper.

  4. Made mine with Canadian bacon instead of ham. I double the recipe for family get togethers.Everyone loves it.

  5. i wonder if you could do a “cresent roll” crust in the bottom of the pan first…what do you think??

  6. I’m not sure-its worth a try.May have to precook the crust a little bit.

  7. So good, when I make again will add more cheese!

  8. I’ve made this several times already, and it’s definitely a favorite of my hubby and I. I leave out the onion and oregano, just because 1) I don’t like onion and 2) I never have oregano 🙂 lol. Instead of mild pork sausage, I always cook a roll of the Jimmy Dean’s Country Mild Sausage and add that instead. I used Prego “Meaty” Sauce. YUM! This is so good!

  9. my son made this in home economics years ago and we all still make it . we use rigatoni noodles and no ham .

  10. Need to season sauce before adding for more flavor. Otherwise it was okay.

  11. Just made this tonight. I left out the ham because I’m not a huge ham person. It was delicious! Currently in the fetal position because I had too much but was well worth it! Great flavors!

  12. We made this today. Had to alter slightly due to bad weather in the area didn’t have access to all ingredients. Replaced hamburg for the sausage and spam for the ham (yes you heard me right spam). It was an amazing meal!!! Very yummy. My daughter made it I just helped. Very simple yet yummy!!!

  13. This was absolutely amazing! I used ground turkey instead of pork and didn’t use the ham. It was perfect! It would be good with the ham though too!

  14. We made this last night, and it was awesome!! We used ground beef instead of ham and didn’t have oregano, but it turned out just fine. I actually couldn’t wait to get home from work today so I could warm some up!

  15. Finally made this tonight for supper,been planning to make it for a week or so now but kept forgeting to pick up certain ingrediants when shopping.It looked so yummy in the picture I didnt want to substitute anything for fear of messing it up. This was absolutely delicious. But now that I know how versatile this recipe is I will try it different ways . I dont think you could mess this up if you tried. This will be a new favorite in my house. I usually make familly members a lasagna & deliver it unbaked with the Chrismas gifts each year (usually around the 21st or 22nd of December). That way with all the rushing around at that time of the season they have a ready made meal to pop in the oven! This will replace the lasagna this year,way easier ! Thanks for the recipe.

  16. Can you leave out the ham? Would you néeds more of the other meats? Looks great!!sure, you may change the taste a little bit-i would add meat to make up for it.

  17. my family and I thought this was good. we will make it again. we are a family of 5. my kids are small. we didn’t even eat half of it for dinner. We will have it for leftovers tomorrow. This makes to much to fit into a 9 x 13 .

    This was delicious! I replaced all the meats with low sodium turkey products and it turned out great and I had plenty of left overs. I will definitely make this again.

  19. this turned out outstanding ….. easy 2 make i didnt have all those layers but ended up with 2 good enough 🙂

  20. wow.. 9×13 pan is almost 2 small.. in the oven now but scared it will bubble over.. I put a pan under it just to make sure 🙂

  21. I tried this tonight and it was absolutely DELICIOUS! I halved it because I was only feeding 3 people. But this will definitely be added to our dinner favorites!

  22. I agree that the 9×13 is too small. I should have gone with my instinct to split it into a large & a smaller dish (this would make enough for 2 decent sized dishes). I was also afraid it would boil over so I put a pan underneath. So far, so good. It’s been in for 20 minutes, but it looks like the pepperoni could end up burned if I leave it the full 20. I wish I had covered it for the first half.

  23. I made this for supper tonite and my boyfriend absolutely loved it! It’s pizza in pasta form and its delicious. We will definitely be making this one again 🙂

  24. This was so easy to make and kid friendly too— next time I’ll let my 4 and 5 year old help layer so they feel extra special :). I had no problems with it fitting in my pan… It did not bubble over, and the pepperoni did not burn even in for the full duration. Next time, provided I have time and I’m not rushed, I’ll take the jar tomato sauce and simmer it with some garlic and onion just to give it some extra umph. I didn’t use parmesan, nor sausage since I’m not a fan, but I bet hamburger would be a great substitute. I just did a layer of pepperoni bottom and top with ham in the middle. Also my cans were sold in 24oz not 26oz and I definitely missed the extra 4 oz!! But I’m a sauce lover. I could drink it. If you were to divide the pan 3 ways vertically and horizontally, my kids and I ate 2 squares worth… This is a lot of food!!! It’s so going to the freezer for easy meals later 🙂 Thanks a ton for this recipe! So glad I found it when bored with the same ol same ol.

  25. Looks great, but where are all the veggies in this recipe?? Lol! I’d revamp it using 1/8 the amount of meat, and subbing in tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, onions and black olives.

  26. My family loved it. I would use less sauce the next time. It was quick, easy and left overs for lunch the next day!

  27. I would love to share this with all my Pinterest friends! Could you add them as one of your social networks?

  28. I am in the process of updating the blog theme. For some reason Pinterest did not carry over- we will get the link back in as soon as possible. Thanks

  29. This sounds so good. Do you have any idea how many this would feed? I am looking to feed 20 – 30 people. Just wondering how many of these I should fix. Thanks Sandy

  30. This is a large recipe so depending on your guests, and if you are serving anything else with it, 3-4 casseroles for 20 adults I think would be reasonable.
    We have big eaters here. When I serve this dish it feeds 4 with some left overs.
    I hope this helps-Thanks

    do you cook te noodles first?

  32. Yes-Cook pasta in boiling water until al dent é.

  33. I have been wanting to make this for a while and remembered to put all of the ingredients on my list today. Way to much for a 9×13 pan. I will need to get those disposable foil pans i think for the next time i make it. Didn’t use the ham, but used 2 different chunky sauces: ine with tomatoes in it and the other mushrooms. Will make again!! 🙂

  34. I am going to try this with a carb free crust on the bottom made of eggs, cream cheese and parm cheese.

  35. Spikeygrrl says:

    I made this last night — without the pasta, and using homemade no-sugar-added tomato sauce, to conform with my medically-restricted diet. YUMMMMM! You have no idea how badly I’ve missed for the past seven years pizza and pasta and submarine sandwiches and all those other high-carb “delivery mechanisms” for otherwise-low-carb Italian flavors. The idea of a “casserole” without a base carb may sound odd to some, but for my household it’s a welcome concept which fills a real need (my husband gets his necessary carbs “on the side,” in this case via bakery-fresh garlic bread).

    I’d welcome anyone else’s suggestions for ultra-low-carb casseroles (absolutely no more than 10g carbs per serving, less than 5g preferred). Many thanks in advance!

    loved this recipe! we got 2 nights of dinner from this. this will not fit in a 9×13 pan. youll need a bigger pan. i used about a 13×18 pan and it was perfect. it was one of those aluminum disposable pans!

  37. I made this tonight for dinner…it was absolutely fantastic! My family love it!


  39. I’ve never tried making it that; but it would be worth a try. Any type of good pie crust should work.

  40. made this for a dinner party, used my own sauce, turkey sausage and turkey pepperoni and veggie penne and it was a hit! Didn’t tell anyone it was turkey till after Everyone wanted receipe!

  41. Can this be made the night before and cooked the following day?

  42. I haven’t tried it, but I don’t see why not. I would cover it to make sure it doesn’t dry out.

  43. Excellent casserole. Enjoyed by all of our family members, versatile as well.

  44. The kids loved this, and they are fussy! Thanks

  45. Family loved it… Left off the ham and still delicious!

  46. I have made this planty of times its one of my family’s favorit dinners.. cooking it tonight before work.. Yummy

  47. My boyfriend and I made this the other night and it was fantastic. We made a few changes so here they are:
    1. Use a bigger dish for sure!
    2. Grease the dish with butter like she says and then lay out some butter garlic crescent rolls! (No need to pre cook before layering)
    3. We used ground turkey (but thats just because that’s what we prefer)
    4. Instead of using ham we turned that layer into a veggie layer with fresh mushrooms, black olives, and bell pepper!
    5. We also used turkey pepperoni’s (they taste just the same to us!)
    Thank you so much for the recipe!! It won’t be the last time we make it!!

  48. Bonnie Jones says:

    I make this for my family. They love it. I am making it tomorrow for dinner.

  49. If you don’t like onions, what should I use as a substitute?

  50. You could use shallots for a milder flavor or just leave them out.
