Slow Cooker Pizza Bake Recipe {Freezer Meal}

Don’t you love slow cooker meals? 🙂  So quick and easy!  My aunt made this for a large family gathering and my kids (and husband!) could not get enough of it!  We have made it a couple of times since and it has been a huge hit every time.

  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 medium onion (optional), diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 8 oz sliced pepperoni
  • 4 oz (1 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 8 oz (2 cups) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 oz Rigatoni noodles, cooked
  • 15 oz pizza sauce
  • 26 oz Spaghetti sauce


  1. 1. Brown meat, onion and pepper in frying pan.
  2. 2. Drain grease and add pizza sauce and spaghetti sauce
  3. 3. Combine all ingredients in a large crock pot (spray with non-stick spray first).
  4. 4. Cook on HIGH for 30 minutes and then LOW for 2 or 3 hours until the cheese melts.
  6. Note:  This makes a lot of food, so I usually freeze half before cooking it.  Later it can be thawed and cooked in the slow cooker as directed above.

    If you were to cook the entire recipe and then freeze the leftovers already fully cooked does it heat up well and if so, what would be the best way to reheat (microwave, oven, crockpot) and for how long? Or do you only recommend that you freeze it uncooked? Thanks so much! I am freezer cooking in preparation for new baby and this looks delicious! ;)
    • You will have to prepare everything such as browning the meat along with the onion and pepper. When you would throw everything into the slow cooker, that is when you can put it in a freezer bag. They would just need to thaw it and throw it in the slow cooker when you want it. Hope this helps!!
