Pizza casserole is one of those recipes that every mom should have in her stash. It’s an easy go-to, family meal when you need something that everyone will enjoy.

Throw together a quick salad and some garlic sticks and dinner is ready in a flash. (this is what I had for dinner tonight)
My three-year-old said “I just love this so much” lol I love this recipe for a lot of reasons, one being that it’s so easy to switch up the ingredients and create a whole new meal.

For a more adult twist, I’ll make white pizza casserole with spinach, grilled chicken, caramelized onions, mozzarella, white cheddar cheese, and white wine sauce.

It’s soooo good! Almost sinful. If you want me to do that recipe leave me a lil note in the comment box below.

 Watch me make this pizza casserole for you from start to finish!
