Pizza Casserole

Pizza Casserole at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

This Pizza Casserole has seven layers of Italian flavor. This casserole is great to serve on a big game day or a Sunday Fun Day. I have taken this casserole to parties and served it to family, everybody loves this casserole. One of the things I love about the casserole is that it freezes well up to three months. I usually put it into serving portions and freeze for individual meals, they are a perfect size for the lunch bag gang. This casserole is a great go-to recipe for a crowd.
