This one-pot Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Bake is the perfect comination of your two favorite Italian dinners – pizza and pasta! It’s a completely fail-proof dinner recipe.

  • 1/2 cup pepperoni slices
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can Basil, Garlic, and Oregano diced tomatoes
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups penne pasta
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella or Italian-blend cheese
  • extra pepperoni for topping


  1. Add sausage, pepperoni, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, pasta and water to a large, 12-inch skillet. Stir to combine.
  2. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to medium to medium-low, and simmer for 15 minutes until the liquid is mostly absorbed.
  3. Top evenly with cheese and extra pepperoni slices. Broil until the cheese is browned and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
