Delicious Pizza Lasagna Recipe

Pizza Lasagna

This 5-layer pepperoni pizza lasagna is the best of both pizza and lasagna. It is cheesy, saucy, and melty. This easy recipe for a weeknight dinner is fun for kids to help make.

Pizza lasagna?! Yes, those are the two magic words that will make any child happy. If you’re an adult like me but still have a child’s heart, this is great for you too!

There are a lot of things that pizza and lasagna have in common that make them great for this recipe. It’s one of the simplest and quickest ways to make lasagna at home.

Make it a family business.

In fact, it’s so easy that even your kids can help, especially if pizza is their favorite food or favorite thing to make or eat. Putting together lasagna is just a matter of repeating the layers, which can help kids learn by recognizing patterns.

This dish could easily become one of your new favorites. With all the easy steps, you’ll be glad to make it again and again.

Why I love Lasagna Noodles that are Ready to Bake

When I don’t have much time, like on a weeknight, I like to use oven-ready lasagna. Unlike traditional dry lasagna noodles, oven-ready lasagna noodles don’t need to be cooked, checked to make sure they’re al dente, rinsed, and then lightly sprayed with oil to keep them from coming apart. (Yeah, it was hard to say and do all of that.)

Also, oven-ready lasagna comes in flat sheets that stay together in their box. Traditional lasagna noodles with fancy wavy ends tend to break easily.

Lastly, oven-ready lasagna sheets come in sets of three and fit well in a 9×13-inch baking dish, so you don’t have to break up dry noodles to make them fit. You can easily lay three sheets per layer.

The only problem with oven-ready lasagna is that it might not have as much “bite” as traditional lasagna. If this is important to you, you can use traditional lasagna instead. Boil them before putting them together.

Pepperoni Time

I like to use small pieces of pepperoni, and most kids do too. Children love small things because they fit in their tiny worlds so well. Small pepperonis also let you get a random amount of pepperonis, which makes it much easier to cut a five-layer lasagna without having to watch the normal pepperonis fall to the bottom as you cut them.

The small pieces of pepperoni make it easy to cut and serve the lasagna. Hormel Minis were used. If you can only find big pieces, you can cut them in half or four before putting the lasagna together.


9 ounces of lasagna noodles that are ready to bake (about 15 sheets)
1 jar of tomato sauce, 48 ounces (about 6 cups), or make your own.
1 1/2 pounds of shredded mozzarella with low wetness (about 5 cups).
5 ounces of thinly sliced pepperoni (see note in recipe).


Turn on the oven:

Put the rack in the middle of the oven and heat it to 375°F.

To put the lasagna together, put 3/4 cup of tomato sauce in a 9×13-inch baking dish and spread it out with a spoon. This will be the foundation.

For the first layer, place 3 lasagna sheets so that they are all the same distance apart. Add another 3/4 cup of marinara and spread it out. On top of the sauce, put 1 cup of the mozzarella and 1 ounce of the pepperoni, which is about 50 small slices.

For the next four layers, repeat the steps.

Let the lasagna bake:

Bake the dish for 25 minutes with foil on top. Take off the foil and bake for 5 minutes without the foil.

Let the lasagna cool for 15 minutes before serving so that it can keep its shape when it is cut.
