Why make pepperoni pizza in a slow cooker? For starters, because sometimes just the sheer joy of making something a different way is fun! However, making pizza in your slow cooker also gives you a few hours to go do whatever you need without hovering over the stove. Most importantly though, making pizza in a slow cooker as in the recipe that follows makes it really, really hard to burn—perhaps the number one complaint people have when making pizza in an oven.
It's also just as easy as making pizza in the oven. While homemade pizza dough will obviously work, it's even easier to pick up some fresh dough from the grocery store or local baker and have the hard part done for you. It will bake up beautifully in the slow cooker and will provide that crunchy crisp on the outside, while being soft, pillowy, and light on the inside. It will be just as good as any pizza from the oven and no one will know unless you tell them, which you should. Making pizza in a slow cooker is awesome!
