Very good and a great way to include vegetables. Also try using Italian sausage instead of hamburger. If you like supreme pizza throw in a couple sliced mushrooms, black olives, or other vegetables and meats. This is great to have in the crockpot on a baseball practice night good and ready when the guys get home!!!!!

I threw half a batch of this together using ingredients I had on hand (precooked frozen ground beef, a bag of frozen chopped 3-color peppers & onions) and left it for DH and the kids one night when I had to work. It got rave reviews- and the leftovers were gone before I got to taste one! I'll keep this in mind for a quick and easy meal in the future- thanks!

This was a little different and we really enjoyed it for lunch. I used Pizzeria Pizza Sauce for my pizza sauce, which is a favorite for us. I made half the recipe and have leftovers for the week. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2011 :)
