Pepperoni Pizza Casserole

Want another recipe? I’ve tried some different pizza casseroles in my life, and they have not been good, even in the slightest. UNTIL I tried this one. My husband would prefer me making pizza that was full of gluten, and all the other things that I can’t really tolerate, and I do, occasionally, but when I’m in the mood for pizza, without all the other nastiness, this is the one I would recommend. It’s really tasty, I think at least. Without Further ado, here it is!! Feel free to comment and share your experiences.IMG_5091
