I love that you can mix this up anyway you like.  The possibilities are endless….Hawaiian with pineapple, ham, peppers, and corn; chicken and broccoli, meat lovers, veggie lovers….it’s so good.

If you’re like me and like a bit of crust on your pizza then you can simply add a can of crescents to the top once your slow cooker pizza is done and pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until your “crust” is golden brown.

This is the best slow cooker for making slow cooker pizza because it easily goes from slow cooking into the oven to finish baking.

I have never tried cooking pizza in a slow cooker. We have a larger one I use all the time and then the mini 3 that would be perfect for the kids to make their own. Thanks!

This is my first time to hethe oar about slow-cooker pizza. I've always assumed that the oven is the only way to do it. I don't have a slow cooker right now but I plan to get one. Will try your recipe then.

This is really a unique way to cook pizza and I'd of never realized I could cook it in a slow cooker. I use mine for everything so I can't wait to add pizza to that list.
