Pizza in a Pot
Ingredients
  • 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 1/2 ounce can  Italian-style stewed tomatoes
  • 2  cups  frozen (yellow, green, and red) peppers and onion stir-fry vegetables
  • 1 4 1/2 ounce 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
Directions

1. 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.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.

3. 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.
