PEPPERONI PIZZA CASSEROLE INGREDIENTS

Get your favorite plate and enjoy, a big spoon and dig in! You will find the links to the products I used in the recipe below.

You may have many of these casserole ingredients on hand. Lean ground turkey 97/3 is best. Onion, garlic, olive oil, zero-point tomato sauce, Hunts is best. You will add a few simple seasonings too.

PIZZA CASSEROLE TOPPING IDEAS
I used low-carb rotini pasta for this recipe, low-fat mozzarella, and fat-free mozzarella, too. If you are on a purple plan, using whole wheat noodles will lower your point values.

And I also like to add spinach, broccoli, and mushrooms to pizza. Those are all zero points on the SmartPoints plan!!
