Easy Dinner Recipe Of The Week ~ SLOW COOKER DEEP DISH PIZZA

Slow Cooker Deep Dish Pizza


  • 8 ounces bulk Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 pound purchased pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 10-12 pepperoni slices


  • Brown sausage in a medium pan, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon. Once sausage is about halfway cooked, add onion. Cook until sausage is no longer pink and onion is soft.
  • Add garlic powder, tomato puree, and Italian seasoning. Simmer until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Roll dough out on parchment paper so that it is about 2 inches longer and 2 inches wider than a 6-quart crock pot.
  • Place parchment paper and dough into crock pot. Reshape the dough so that it comes 1 inch up the sides. If there is too much excess parchment paper, trim it some. Be sure to leave enough to lift the pizza out of the crock pot.
  • Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on the dough. Spread sauce over dough.
  • Sprinkle Italian cheese blend on top of sauce. Scatter pepperoni on top.
  • Place several layers of paper towels on top of the crock pot and fit the lid on. Be sure the paper towels are pulled tightly under the lid.
  • Cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or on LOW for 4 to 6 hours. Be sure to open the crock pot and take a peak shortly before the end of cooking time in case your crock pot runs a little hot. You don't want the bottom of the crust to burn.
  • Lift the parchment paper to remove the pizza from the crock pot. Slice pizza and serve.
