Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

We are in the middle of packing for our newest adventure and unfortunately that also means paring down our pantry supplies. We will not be able to take anything more than snacks with us on our 14 hour drive south so as items are used up in our pantry I have not been replacing them. We have instead been working on some creative meals with what we do have on hand.

The other night I had planned to have a simple meal of homemade pizza for dinner. That is until I realized that we did not have any flour left. I purchase our flour 50lbs at a time so running out was a bit bizarre for me. I stood there staring at the pantry trying to figure out what to make for dinner that would preferably include the mozzarella cheese and pepperoni I wanted to use up before we left. While staring at the shelves I saw a box of macaroni and remembered the Pepperoni Pizza Casserole I had made a few years back for our freezer meal stash.

Pepperoni Pizza Casserole it is! This is a super simple recipe to put together. You can find my recipe for homemade pizza sauce here, or buy store bought if you prefer.

Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

1 lb dried pasta, cooked
2 cups pizza  sauce
2 cups mozzarella, shredded
1/2 bag pepperoni slices

Add your cooked macaroni to a 9x13in baking pan and stir in your pizza sauce. Top your casserole with the cheese and pepperoni. Bake at 375 for 15min until the cheese is melted and the pepperoni start to curl a bit.

Very tasty and honestly much simpler than traditional homemade pizza. You could put any toppings you prefer on your pizza casserole obviously.  I think olives, bell peppers, and some spinach would be delicious!
