Crockpot Pizza

I am reposting this with the adjustments that I made. Turned out great and makes a lot. We use ground turkey in most of our recipes, and the turkey sausage makes a nice substitution for pepperoni. I add the carrots to boost the veggie impact, or you can use pureed sweet potatoes instead. Feel free to use whatever pizza toppings you like!

Crockpot Pizza
1 lb ground turkey, browned and drained
1 bag whole wheat egg noodles, cooked al dente (not quite done)
2+ cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup finely chopped or pureed carrots
1 cup smoked turkey sausage, sliced
1 extra large jar spaghetti sauce (3lb size) or two regular-sized jars
1 T minced garlic
Italian seasoning to taste
And other pizza toppings if available: chopped onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc.

Brown the ground turkey (w/ onions, peppers, and garlic, if using). Add carrots for last 3 mintues of cooking time, then add half the sauce in with the meat. Layer meat/sauce, noodles, cheese, turkey sausage, and repeat layers until crockpot is full, ending with a layer of sauce & the Italian seasoning. Cook on low all day. Shortly before serving, add more cheese to the top and allow it to melt.

This would be yummy with onions, green peppers, and black olives! I hope hubby wants to try it, because I want to cook it! Thanks for sharing.
