Cheesy Pizza Casserole

I didn’t use my slow cooker tonight… are you surprised?  I would marry my slow cooker if it was legal.  I love that thing.  But instead tonight I made this delicious pizza casserole.  The family loved it of course.  Pizza in a casserole form?  The best of both worlds!  And let me tell you, the homemade breadtwists are a must!

Rating: 4 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 3 stars
Things that I changed:  I just used one big 4 cup bag of cheese.  Also didn’t use the onion.
Things that I would do differently next time:  It makes a ton.  I would half the recipe if you have a family of 4 and make it in a 9×9.  We are going to be having pizza casserole leftovers for a week! 🙂
Will I make it again?  Yes
