Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Love Meal! Two of my kids won't eat chili - but pizza chili is a must have in our house! I have brought it to church functions and it has been a huge hit. The recipe has been shared with most everyone. Please bring back the pizzaria seasoning!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious chili Great flavor & kick. I accidentally added too much water so I threw in some noodles and it was wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pizzalicious comfort food! I made this last night, and we loved it! It smelled so good I totally forgot to pull the cheese and sour cream out of the fridge to put on top. I picked up some shredded Italian cheese blend instead of cheddar - if there is any left when I get home from work, maybe I will get a chance to try it with the cheese, but I'm not holding my breath. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy twist on a chili recipe I swapped the sausage for hamburger as that's what I had on hand. It was really easy to make. Great flavor and nice to mix it up from the usual chili recipe.
