I can't believe I am posting this one. Where is the tag for "Warning Label"?
Oh, but seriously we only make this a couple times a year. It is very delicious but my convictions only allow indulging like this once in awhile. lol
My husband has been making this dish since he was a teenager and he loves it!!! It is one hearty dish and will fill your stomach very quickly.
Well, if you venture to make this I do hope you enjoy your "Pizza Lasagna".

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice your pepperoni with food processor or mandoline.

    (Cook up your noodles)
  2. Cook up your sausage.
  3. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce in pan.
  4. Sauce on bottom of dish
    1 LAYER
    1 layer of rigatoni's
    1 layer of sauce
    1 layer of pepperoni
    1 layer of mushrooms
    1 light layer of cheese
    2nd LAYER
    1 layer of noodles
    1 layer of sauce
    1 light layer of Sweet Italian Sausage
    1 layer of mushrooms
    1 heavy layer of sliced Roasted Red Peppers
    1 light layer of cheese
    3 LAYER
    1 layer of rigatoni's
    1 layer of sauce
    1 light layer of pepperoni
    1 small can of sliced black olives (in the spots where you see cheese)
    ---OK, so mine is one less layer than his! LOL
  5. Right out of the oven, Pizza Lasagna
  6. a slice of Pizza Lasagna for you!

    (This does not set up like regular Lasagna; however, if you prepare this the day before and let it sit overnight in the refrig. you will have more of a solid lasagna.)
  7. Del Grosso New York Style Pizza Sauce
  8. I entered Tony's Pizza Lasagna into a contest that our local TV station WKBN 27 is having and he got picked as one of the winners. Today, January 30th 2013 he went to have his segment taped and it will air on Monday Feb. 4th for the Early Morning Show. He also won a really nice gift package too. We both had alot of fun and since it was for Valentine's Day we topped it with pepperoni's cut into hearts.
  9. This was after he was finished with videotaping his segment and they asked if I would be in the photo too.
