Slow Cooker Pizza

Slow Cooker Pizza

 

Slow cooker pizza, you say? Did you know you can make pizza in your slow cooker?  Yes, you can!  It’s so easy and no heating up your kitchen during those hot summer days. Using refrigerated pizza dough from your local supermarket makes this recipe come together in a snap.  It’s surprisingly crispy, crunchy and bubbly delicious!

Spray your crock insert with cooking oil spray.  Press the refrigerated dough in the bottom and up the sides.

Spread sauce, meat and cheese evenly over the dough.  We did half pepperoni and half cheese only. (for my daughter)

Cook on low setting for about 2 hours.

Remove carefully and serve. How easy is this meal?  Just look at that crispy browned crust and the ooey gooey cheese on top.  To make it easier to remove (which I didn’t do) make 2 heavy duty foil handles.  Long enough to hang out of the slow cooker and about 5 inches or so wide.  Place the foil handles in the crock in a criss cross before placing in the pizza dough.  I didn’t have that much trouble removing the pizza it was just a little awkward.

    I would not have thought that you would get browned edges using the slow cooker for pizza. That’s awesome.

    Good Afternoon to you, I am sorry, but I could not find your name. I wanted to pop over to visit you because I was intrigued by your slow cooker pizza. I never imagined such a thing.
    Can I ask, did you find it difficult to remove the pizza from the crock, because the crock was so deep I wondered was it easy to remove.
    I love the idea of cooking a pizza in a slow cooker as my husband is such a fan of pizza. He loves pizza on a Saturday afternoon while he is watching the sport on television.
    Best Wishes

      Hi Daphne! I found it just slightly awkward to remove the pizza. I suggest..To make it easier to remove (which I didn’t do) make 2 heavy duty foil handles. Long enough to hang out of the slow cooker and about 5 inches or so wide. Place the foil handles in the crock in a criss cross before placing in the pizza dough. I hope this helps! Thank you so much for coming by.

    What a great idea! I love homemade pizza but don’t make it very often because it’s so time consuming, especially since I make my own dough. I’ll have to try this!

      I also make my own dough but haven’t tried it in the slow cooker yet. Thanks for coming by Bradleigh!

    wow, that’s different! I bet it is tricky to get out though!

      It wasn’t too bad to remove from the slow cooker, but I admit it was a little ackward. You can use foil slings placed in the pot before putting down the dough. Thank you for stopping by, Jenna!

    What an interesting idea! I’d never think of making pizza there. We have a big tradition of making pizza every Friday & since we have it all down pat & always make two at once, we’ll stick to that, but this idea would be perfect if I ever discover we’ll be out of the house all day, because I don’t feel nervous leaving the crock pot cooking while gone and that way we could still have our pizza!
