If your family isn’t following either a low carb or trim healthy mama eating plan, serve it with some crusty bread. They will be going back for seconds.

This recipe is super easy to make.

I made this as part of my weekend meal prep. If you are making meals that require you to precook the meat, I suggest starting with those. That way the meat has a chance to cool off before you put it in a container. I cooked up the meat and veggies and let them cool before putting in a gallon bag. And then everything went into one of those shoeboxes. This is my favorite meal prep and dinner saver idea I have used.

Add your family favorite’s to the dish.

We are huge black olive fans. Pizza needs to have olives on it for us. If your family loves chunks of partially cooked bell peppers and onions, don’t cook those with the meat. I am not a fan bell peppers, much less partially cooked ones. In a crockpot I don’t find them to get cooked through enough so I go ahead and cook them. Make adjustments for your family’s tastes. None of us are anchovy fans, so you won’t find those in any pizza recipe I post. I really hope your family loved this as much as mine did.
