I love pizza, and I love casserole, so it only makes since that when combined, these two great food loves equate to one fantastically tasty treat.  And what I love just as much as the great taste, is the fact that this dish requires few ingredients and minimal effort.  Now that's what I call dinner made simply delicious!
