Moving and EASY Meals - Pizza in the Crockpot

Feel free to get caught up on Alison's week long adventure with preparing dinners ONLY with her crockpot in hopes to make easy meals in her almost empty kitchen before she moves.
Day 1: Salsa Chicken
Day 2: Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Day 3 has arrived and the soup was a success! My DH gave it a 10/10 – he actual said that any soup would get a score of 10 from him as he LOVES soup! I ended up adding cheese to mine and none to his – it worked out great. I ended up adding a bit more salt to mine (bad I know…) as I didn’t add much at all before putting the lid on the crockpot.

I should mention that my husband took some of the leftover chicken from the night before and added it to his second helping of the soup. We each got a big bowl, DH had a second and there is one more serving left for lunch today – super helpful that I don’t have to make lunch while we are packing up boxes!

So what to make for night three? We LOVE pizza and so I started to do a search for crockpot pizzas. Many of the recipes that came up required the use of a frying pan and while I confess I haven’t packed that yet…I want to stay true to my original plan which was to make dinners in the crockpot that only require the ingredients and the pot itself! Eventually I found a few recipes that seemed good.

I watched the following video:

The plan is to follow the basic idea from the above video tonight!

For the pizza dough, I just bought fresh pizza dough from the store so that I didn’t have to worry about thawing the dough.

I then added the following for toppings:
  • basic spaghetti sauce
  • turkey pepperoni
  • green pepper
  • black olives (already sliced in a can)
  • mozzarella cheese

My crockpot is smaller than the one featured in the YouTube video, so I hope it turns out – I think it will just be a thicker crust. I also followed the advice on this webpage by placing a tea towel over the crockpot before putting the lid on to help trap the moisture.

Stay tuned…
