Today we take the guilt away, destroy the pizza cravings, and make one of the best meal prep recipes to date! This delicious Slow Cooker Pizza is super easy to make, packed with flavor, and has awesome macros.
Start this one with 3 cups of pasta. You’ll want to cook it for around 5 minutes then remove and drain it just before it’s done. Doing this will keep it from undercooking in your slow cooker.
Add your cooked pasta into a large bowl after that.
Continue by browning 1 pound of lean ground beef or turkey and adding that into your bowl. If you didn’t use a lean enough meat here, I would drain it before adding it into your bowl. Your choice!
After that, add in 1-2 servings of some pepperoni slices if you like pepperoni, 6 large egg whites, your favorite chopped up vegetables, 2 cans of a healthy pizza sauce, 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning, and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic.
I’m using green bell peppers in my slow cooker pizza today.
Mix all of those up really good.
Take out your slow cooker and either coat it with some non-stick cooking spray or use a liner for easy clean up which you can find below.
In your slow cooker you should start by adding a layer of your mix then topping that layer with some reduced fat pizza cheese.
You can make your own pizza cheese using a combination of cheddar and mozzarella. In total, we’re using 8 ounces.
Repeat those steps and make however many layers you want for your slow cooker pizza, I usually make 3.
Throw your lid on and cook your slow cooker pizza on low for around 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
Looks delicious, right? This is definitely one you’ll never get sick of. You can easily change it up by adding in different vegetables, switching up your cheeses, and so on.
To portion this slow cooker pizza out I like to make 7 servings and each serving is around 315 grams.
How about a quick update on why we’re a few weeks late here while your recipe cooks? No, I wasn’t on vacation.
I got called for jury duty and was picked to sit on a huge trial. Let’s just say having over 100 hours robbed from you is less than ideal!
Either way, we’re back for good…or at least a few years.
How about a Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu next? It’s delicious!
