This One Pot Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Meal comes together in no time at all and was a perfect meal for my larger family. This pasta dish can be made with your favorite pizza toppings. We chose ground beef, pepperoni, onions and mozzarella cheese. Plus this meal can be made very inexpensively. We bought everything at Aldi. One pot meals have become popular in our home. We all really enjoyed our One Pot Chicken Broccoli Pasta and One Pot American Goulash. I really like that one pot meals can usually serve a larger family like ours. I like that they come together quickly, are usually less expensive and also that cleanup is minimal.
One Pot Pepperoni Pizza Pasta
This One Pot Pepperoni Pizza Pasta dish was a dinner that I knew my kiddos would enjoy. What kiddo does not like pizza? What kid doesn’t like pasta? It seemed to be a perfect combination. You can add in your favorite pizza toppings to make this dish to your liking. I would highly suggest keeping the pepperoni in the dish as it really added great flavor.
I was super surprised that my hubby REALLY liked this dish. He was amazed at the fact that such a simple dish had the great flavors that it did. He has asked me to add this to our meal plan again this week.
I mentioned that all of the ingredients for this meal were purchased from Aldi. Over the next couple of months, I am planning to share bunches of inexpensive Aldi meals with all of you. EVERYTHING for the meal will be bought from Aldi. Obviously you can purchase your items elsewhere but I plan to challenge myself with creating unique and tasty Aldi Meals to help with our grocery budget.

Looked amazing. Wish I could’ve left a picture
Thanks for the recipe it turned out delicous. I just tweeked it to my taste. I used a tin of crushed tomatos with garlic & olive oil (also from Aldi) and added it to the jar sauce.
This is such an easy and quick meal to make! New wifey here and this is scoring me some major points with hubby!! Thank you : )
Could you use a different pasta
Lol I just made this today I used elbows noodles and mushroom spaghetti sauce and shredded cheddar cheese simile to my family favorite pizza burgers without the hamburger buns????
Thank you so much for this recipe. We made this last night and everyone loved it. And there was plenty left over for lunch the next day. We loved it so much, I included it on my blog, http://www.mommysnotperfect.com, for my weekly post for Quick weeknight meals.
Ooh, I’ve made a similar recipe a couple times before, but it had to be baked. This one-pot idea sounds fantastic. Must give it a whirl!
