Cook Time 2.5 hours
Temp High

As the “Crockin’ Girls” we like to try out things that are not typically tried in the slow cooker. Yes, you can easily do these things in the oven, but we love the freedom slow cooking allows us to have with our kiddos and it doesn’t get as hot as the oven or stove top so our little crockers can join in on the fun! When trying pizza the first time, we were sure it would be a flop, but it turned out fantastic!

Used 6-quart slow cooker

Ingredients

  • 1 Can refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1-2 Cups pizza sauce
  • 1-2 Cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • We like to use Canadian bacon, onion, bell pepper, pineapple... whatever the kiddos choose :)

Directions

  1. Step One

    Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray. Unroll the crust dough and place on the bottom of the slow cooker and let it come up on the sides about an inch.

  2. Step Two

    Add the desired amount of pizza sauce on top of the dough and add the rest of the toppings you choose.

  3. Step Three

    Cook on high for about 2 1/2 hours (the sides of the pizza will pull away from the slow cooker and begin turning brown) then uncover and let cool for about 20-30 minutes.

  4. Step Four

    The pizza should be able to be lifted from the slow cooker using two spatulas, and you will have a Crockin’ Pizza... Slice, serve, and ENJOY!

    And thanks for the sweet message Sara! They’re a handful and a JOY all-in-1 ;)

  9. Rochelle

    I have not tried this as of yet, but they both look great. My conventional oven does not cook true to temp, so I am always having trouble cooking pizzas, homemade or frozen. This is the perfect alternative, and without heating up my trailer!! I can even do this on my patio. We live by solar power and have lots of extra energy during the day!! It’s win, win!!!

    I found your recipes very creative and so out of the box thinking! Wonderful. The best part of the video, however, wasn’t the cooking demonstration, it was the parenting demonstration. You made me smile in awe over how well you both interacted w/your kids. I’ve raised 2 of my own and really did try to be a compassionate teacher at all times, but compared to you two ~ I don’t even come close. Pat each other on the back, ’cause you both deserve it! Thank you.

    Made a very simple version topping the dough with only sauce, turkey sausage and mozarella to try out my new Crock. I did keep an eye on it and noticed the pizza was done in less than 2 hours. It turned out VERY yummy!

    Thanks for all your feedback! We’re glad you stumbled across us, too!!!

  20. Kolohegirl

    Made this today with the help of my 9 yr old and 3 yr old boys. I used homemade dough from scratch as well as homemade sauce. We used onions and mushrooms which were sautéed while the dough was being made. We also had black olives and pepperoni. We also used two types of cheese (cheddar and 4 cheese blend) since we didn’t have a full bag of either. After 2 hrs or so it became a nice deep dish pizza. Lifted the lid and let it cool. It was tricky getting it out without it splitting in half, but I managed. I would so do this again, ESP in the summer heat!!! Thanks girls! I’m so glad I found your site last night when I was looking for a corn chowder recipe (which I also made last night yum!)

    Haven’t tried to double the dough before, Charmae. Not sure if it would cook through. If you try it and it works, let us know!

    Thanks Tonia for the sweet compliment to our kiddos :)

  22. Charmae

    Can’t wait to try this recipe! There are 4 little ones here that would eat that up before mom and dad get a bite. 2,3,6,and 7 year olds that love pizza! Do you think its possible to double layer it and make it super deep baked pizza?????

    I slow cook a lot because we are always busy here!!! I have been taking a lot of my traditional recipes and turning them into slow cooked. Your recipes are great! Thank You for all of the new ideas!

    I can’t wait to try both of these! I’m so excited seeing all these recipes I never would’ve thought to try in the crockpot. I’m fairly new to crockin’ and so far I love every bit of it, its so comforting knowing I can just throw something in there and go on with my day. I am currently taking care of my mom full time plus Im a full-time college student so, like y’all always say its really nice to have the crock pot when you’re pressed for time in the day. Your kids are so cute!

    Tried the pizza tonight and I was pleasantly surprised – just wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I sauteed onions and mushrooms along with precooked turkey sausage crumbles to put on top, then used mozzarella cheese. It was really good – my husband thought so too. I’ve crocked every night this week – loving it!

    I was so happy to find you a few weeks ago. I saw the article in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram and was initially interested because you’re from Early. I was born and raised there, went to K-12 at Early ISD. But then I started following you on FB and have become hooked. I will be trying the pizza soon. Hometown girls rock!!!

    We make homemade pizza about once a week but I make my dough in the breadmaker…will it cook any differently than a store bought dough??? When watching the video it looked like the amount of dough that I make was comparable to that in the can that was used. Thanks for the idea…pizza is sort of a weekly family tradition in our house and this would be super awesome to try and use!

    P.S. My two girls came in while I was watching the video…they thought the kid assistants were great!

    What sizable crockpots are you using? They look really big. Thank you

  62. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Sorry about that, Allison. I hate it when a recipe burns or doesn’t turn out like I wanted. It sounds like your cooker runs really hot. I would try cooking it on low. You may only need to increase an hour. I would definitely check it after the 2.5 to see how it is doing. Good luck next time.

  63. Allison R.

    It burned quite a bit around the edges and we had to cut off most of the crust. I do have a newer crockpot, but I wouldn’t of been able to cut down the cooking time I don’t think because the middle was still doughy. Should I turn it down to low and cook longer or what do you suggest??

  64. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    That is fun. Hope it all turns out deliciously.
    We do love working with our kiddos.

  65. Jennifer

    Had a friend mention she was trying this today. I am anxiously awaiting her results so I can try it out too. Fun thing is she lives in a different time zone so I might even get to try it out today! Thank you for working with your kiddos – that is awesome!

My husband loved it. He requested that I make this every morning for him. Awesome girls, keep up the good work! P.S.The kids are absolutely adorable.

    trying this as Easter dessert. Mixed cake batter and pudding ahead,covered and in frig overnight to save time. add fruits when
    ready to crock it. Will let you know how it turns out. Will use fresh banana,strawberries, and froz peaches. Dropped 16 oz of sour cream in garage when unloading huge amount of groceries today–didnt see it. So i threw it out. Will not have the sour cream in it. Love the idea of crocking —- I am a stayathome grandma babysitting 2 grandkids fulltime. Dont have time to COOK! Crocking may help!

  73. deb d.

    I tried the “accidental” cake..I used two of the Jiffy yellow cake mix boxes..you don’t have to add oil to it is the upswing..just the eggs and I used a mixed can of fruit that i had on hand-fresh is better but its what i had at the time. Mine got well done on the bottom too..my smaller crock tends to run “higher than high” so I put it on medium high and maybe that was the problem-it did turn out good but some parts of the inside were “mushy”..done but “mushy” so I think I might give it another try some time and use my other newer crock i just bought and fresh fruit..the flavor was excellent tho! :)

    the pizza was a HUGE hit at my house! My kids loved it! I made it plain on one side for the kids, & “supreme” style for my hubby & I. We are a family of 5 and there was only a tiny piece left. I did have to adjust the temperature after an hour & turn it down to prevent burning. Can’t wait to make this again! Affordable, easy & delicious. A winner to me!
