Crockpot Monday: Puffy Pizza Casserole

Puffy Pizza Casserole:


1 pound lean ground beef 
1 small onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 (1.5) ounce packet of spaghetti mix (Recipe included!)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water

for puffy topping:

1 cup all-purpose flour 

1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
20 pepperoni slices
1/2 cup sliced olives, optional

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce Mix:
yields 1 packet

1.5 teaspoons kosher salt
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon dried minced onion
1 Tablespoon parsley flakes
1 teaspoon granulated white sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons green pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning


In a very large skillet, brown beef, onion, and garlic. Drain fat, and add spaghetti sauce mix, oregano, tomato sauce, and water. Stir over low heat until tiny bubbles appear. Remove from heat and scoop into the slow cooker.

In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for your puffy topping: flour, milk, eggs, and cheese. Pour evenly over the top. Place pepperoni slices and olives on top of the topping.

Cover and cook on high for 4 hours, or until the topping has turned golden brown, puffed up, and pulled away from the sides.
