Slow Cooker Pepper Jack Pull Apart Pizza

This challenge with Hamilton Beach had me thinking that a good pizza made in the slow cooker would be awesome! We recently started making a new sausage, Smoked Pepper Jack and Onion Sausage and it is awesome. I was thinking, this sausage would be the perfect topping for this pizza. The Hamilton Beach Programmable Slow Cooker cooked this pizza to perfection! This is also a very easy recipe that anyone can enjoy!

Slow Cooker Pepper Jack Pull Apart Pizza
by Luke

1/3 pound Smoked Tasso, diced
2 Tablespoons olive oil 
14 ounces pizza sauce
10 canned biscuits, quartered (I used Grands!)
1/2 white onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 cups mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup sliced jalapenos
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown sausage link and diced tasso. Once browned, slice the sausage into coin-sized pieces. Spread olive oil on the bottom of the slow cooker and 1/4 of the pizza sauce. Place quartered biscuits on the bottom of the pot, but do not let them touch the side of the pot. Spread the remaining pizza sauce on top of the biscuits. Add sliced sausage, diced tasso, onions, peppers, mushrooms, and jalapenos. Then top all of your ingredients with cheese. Cover, lock the lid, and set it to cook on high for 2 hours.

After the timer goes off and it begins warm mode, let it sit for about 20 minutes, uncovered, then pull it apart and enjoy!


  1. What can I substitute for Tasso as I can't find it or a dealer here in Ocala Florida

  2. Hi Bambi, I'm sorry it took so long to respond to you, but you can use seasoned cubed ham or you can purchase tasso online at just click the link in the recipe. The ham works well in this recipe, but it will not have that same smokey flavor that the tasso gives.
