Pizza in a Pot Meal
  • 1 1/2   pounds   bulk Italian sausage or lean ground beef
  • 1    medium  onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1    15 ounce can  pizza sauce with cheese
  • 1    14 1/2ounce can  Italian-style stewed tomatoes
  • 2    cups   frozen (yellow, green, and red) peppers and onion stir-fry vegetables
  • 1    4 1/2ounce jar (drained weight)  sliced mushrooms, drained, or one 2.25-ounce can sliced pitted ripe olives, drained
  • 1    16 ounce loaf  Italian bread or French baguette, halved lengthwise
  • 1    8 ounce package (2 cups)  shredded pizza cheese
In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Place cooked meat mixture in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in pizza sauce, undrained tomatoes, stir-fry vegetables, and mushrooms.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
Arrange bread, cut side up, on a large baking sheet. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden. Spoon meat mixture on top of bread slices. Sprinkle with pizza cheese. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes more or until cheese melts. Cut into 10 pieces.
