This Crock Pot Potato Pizza Bake is a delicious, flavor filled meal. The layers of browned ground beef, potatoes, and Italian flavored sauce ~ topped with melted cheese ~ make a wonderful combination.
This Potato Pizza Bake recipe comes from my old fashioned handmade recipe file. It’s been in there for over 25 years, and has been pulled out so many times, it’s getting a little thin!
We first tried it in the home of one of my childhood friends who made this meal for us soon after we were married. It’s a great recipe that can be adapted to the busyness of your schedule.
The traditional method is to bake it for an hour at 375 degrees.
Or, you can put it in the crock pot and let it make the house smell amazing all day long. It’s the only method I’ve ever used, and it’s amazing.
How to Make Potato Pizza Bake in the Crockpot
In addition to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (not pictured), you’ll need:
- 4 cups sliced potatoes
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 can cheddar cheese soup
- 1 can tomatoe sauce
- a soup can full of milk
- parmesan cheese
- 6 slices mozzerella cheese
- salt, pepper, oregeno, and a little sugar.
Place the onion and sliced potatoes in the bottom of the crock pot.
Layer on browned and drained ground beef.
Pour over the mixture of soup, tomato sauce, milk, and spices.
Place lid on the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
(I cooked mine on high for 4 hours until it was all bubbly, and then put it down to low until dinner time.)
Before serving, sprinkle on parmesan cheese and lay slices of mozzerella on the top. Put the lid back on until the cheese is melted.
If your really want to amp up the “smells so good” factor in your house, throw the ingredients for homemade bread in your bread machine and program it to be done at dinner time. Serve with your amazing Potato Pizza Bake along with a green salad, and the dinner dilemma will be solved!
