I’m talking about my one true love today, friends. And that would be pizza. Lots and lots of pizza!
If I were stranded on a desert island and could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would be pizza. Hands down. No question about it.
I could eat pizza pretty much every day of the week.
For breakfast, lunch, and dinner…it makes the best meals! I also like eating pizza cold, straight from the fridge. There’s just something about having a slice of my favorite deep dish pizza, with that thick crust and and massive amounts of cheese. For some reason, I look forward to eating it cold just as much the next day. Weird, right?
If you’ve been hanging around here long enough, you probably remember that the hubster considers frozen pizza on the same level as pizza that you order out.
Umm what now? And he can’t eat it every week. Yep, if we have a frozen pizza for lunch one day, he insists that he can’t have pizza from a restaurant or take-out place because he just had the frozen kind.
In my mind, there is no doubt. Frozen pizza is not “real” pizza, and even if it is, I could (and would) order pizza the very next day. But don’t worry, I’m determined to bring out his true pizza-holic self. And he’s caved just a little bit, thanks to these pita pizzas.
And since I like to cater to the hubster’s taste every now and then, I decided to compromise with the whole “I can’t have pizza every week” deal and whip up this One Pan Pizza Bake.
This dish contains all of the classic pizza flavors packed into a one pan meal that is sure to satisfy your pizza cravings. Filled with tender pasta, spicy sausage, lean pepperoni, and topped with cheese, this meal is sure to be a hit with everyone.
And I’m happy to report that the hubster loved this One Pan Pizza Pasta. It’s easy to make, full of flavor, and the perfect meal to customize depending on your tastes. Don’t like sausage? Leave it out! Want to add in some veggies? Toss ’em in! It’s great for when you’re cooking for two or for when you want to feed a crowd.
The best part about this pizza casserole (besides the delicious taste) is that it’s made in one pan, and one pan only! So that means less dishes to wash and more time spent out of the kitchen. And that’s always a plus, especially on busy weeknights.
To make this dish, I first browned some sausage in a large skillet. After that was done cooking, I added in some marinara sauce, spices, and pasta. I let the stove work it’s magic and then topped this bake with some mozzarella cheese
This dish even serves as delicious leftovers for the rest of the week, which means that you don’t have to worry about dinner (if it lasts that long)!
So if you’ve got a craving for pizza but don’t want to make the actual pie, then try these easy One Pan Pizza Pasta! I guarantee it will be a meal-time winner!
