Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Parties! This was a hit for a recent party and everyone (kids included) thought it was great! The seasoning is just right and all of the flavors, we used sausage and pepperoni, blended nicely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This is seriously my favorite TS recipe. It was so delicious and easy to throw together on a weeknight. I did bake mine in the oven instead of in the crockpot. I will make this over and over again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Family Favorite The rich seasonings slow cooked into the sauce is amazing! Our pasta turned out a bit mushy but it was still delicious! We will try cooking the pasta first and adding just towards the end next time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YUMMY! I made it in a large skillet, rather than in a slow cooker. My family loved it, gave it 2 thumbs up and asked that I make it again! With 4 kids, it's hard to find a meal that everyone likes but this is definitely one of them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One of the worst slow cooker recipes I've tried Sorry to disagree with others, but this was awful. I am a slow cooker warrior. We use the slow cooker at least once a week. I had high hopes for this meal, how can you go wrong with pizza in the name, right? Unfortunately, the seasoning was overpowering and the entire dish unappetizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy & yummy! This was very good and easy to make. It was a little spicy for our family so I will use 1/2 of the recommended amount of Pizzeria Seasoning next time.
