Spaghizza = spaghetti + pizza = pizza style baked spaghetti casserole!
Spaghizza recipe caught my eye on the internet about a year ago. It was a guest post from Brigette Shevy on moneysavingmom.com . It is an interesting combination of pizza style baked spaghetti casserole.
Day before yesterday I finally had some time to experiment and try this new recipe out. I didn’t need whole 8 servings so I halved the recipe.
This turned to be a frugal, freezable weeknight dinner recipe. I’m sure all kids will be delighted with it since it combines two of their favorite dishes – spaghetti and pizza.
You can try using different ingredients like your favorite sauces, cheese mixtures ad pizza toppings. Variations are endless and I’m pretty sure you cannot go wrong with Spaghizza recipe.

Top with the spaghetti sauce and half of the pepperoni. Sprinkle with the shredded mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining pepperoni. Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese (optional).
