Anytime Pizza Casserole

Total Time

My kids and I love this recipe! Very tasty and the variations are endless! Because this is like pizza; you can add whatever pizza ingredient you love! I add a little brown sugar to the sauce to cut back on acidity and I like to add minced garlic. I received this through a recipe swap in 2000 from Sharon S. Runyan.

Great idea. I added italian seasoning when i was layering it and I think it gave it a good flavor.

This was a hit with my toddler, and with me too. We are vegetarian and used meat substitutes. Very yummy. I'm probably going to try some variations that add vegetables into the mix.
