What can I say? I love to combine meals into one ahhhhhMazing dish. It’s kinda my thing. I get especially excited about it when it is two of my favorite comfort foods. It doesn’t get much more comforting than macaroni & cheese and pepperoni pizza! And, I decided I do not use tortellini nearly enough so I tossed those into this recipe too.

Making this Cheese Tortellini Pepperoni Pizza Casserole is relatively simple. I started with my usual mac & cheese sauce base, added cooked tortellini, layered on the pizza toppings then baked.

This dish is all about The Cheese. The sauce is made with Velveeta and a three cheeses blend. It is topped with shredded mozzarella cheese for that melty top. And I serve it with powdered parmesan cheese (like the kind you get with you pizza) . . . because that is how we do it at my house! MORE CHEESE, PLEASE!!!

Really cheese is the only reason that I could never, ever be a vegan. I could probably get used to not eating meat. But my cheese cravings are all consuming.

If you get cheese cravings, like me, this Pizza Casserole is the cure.

  1. This is great. Pepperoni pizza without the bread. Lovely!

  2. I made this Tortellini Pepperoni Pizza Casserole….followed directions to the T….but it came out very soupy. It tasted great, but the cheese sauce was very runny. What might I have done wrong?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Oh no! There are a few possibilities for the consistency issue, did you use whole milk? The low fat varieties can be thinner with more water. Really, once the Velveeta is added it should thicken the sauce and even more while baking. Another possibility, could there have been water hiding out in your cooked tortellini? I know I’ve done that before. Thanks for the feedback!
