How to make gluten free pizza casserole: 

First preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet and drain off any excess grease.  Then pour in the crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and the garlic salt to make the pasta sauce. Stir to combine and heat for 3-5 minutes on low.

Meanwhile cook the gluten free pasta according to directions but cook to al dente, meaning you want the pasta to be firm and slightly undercooked.

After cooked, drain the pasta and pour half of the pasta in a 9×13 casserole dish sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray.

Then spoon half the meat mixture over the top of the pasta in the baking dish.  Layer with half the shredded Mozzarella cheese over the meat mixture.  Then top with half the pepperonis.

Follow this same layering process again to use the remaining pasta, meat sauce, cheese and pepperoni.  Sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top.  Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Then remove the foil and bake another 15 minutes until bubbly and brown.  Allow the casserole to set for 5-10 minutes.  Then cut, serve and enjoy!

Can you freeze this Pizza Casserole Recipe? 

Yes, this recipe freezes great.  I always make a double batch when I make this recipe – one for dinner and one to freeze for a future dinner.

To make a casserole freezer meal, I assembly the casserole in a foil disposable 9X13 pan, cover and freeze.  Then when I’m ready to make it, I thaw it out overnight in the refrigerator and then bake according to the recipe instructions.

It’s really that easy to make this freezer casserole recipe and isn’t much more work.
