Happy New Year everyone! (A little late, I know) Today I am presenting you something a little fun and different: a Pizza Casserole! The extremely kind @AriesFlare has given me special permission to recolor her "Taco Casserole" mesh and so I created this fun pizza dish! I hope all of you enjoy the yumminess that is pizza casserole. (And who doesn't love pizza, right? )

What is Pizza Casserole?
Whenever I went to camp, the staff would make us homemade pizza casserole with pepperoni, pizza sauce, pasta noodles, and cheese. This is the base for most pizza casseroles but many other people add extra things like black olives or onions. The one that I have made for Sims is the basic version with plops of veggie ranch dressing on top. (If you are further curious about it, check out the recipe on allrecipes.com)



Final Thoughts...
I have wanted to make this dish since I saw AriesFlare's original Taco Casserole mesh, and since I have been learning a lot about recoloring recently I thought now would be the perfect time to work on this. All feedback, suggestions, and comments are welcome! I hope you all enjoy

Curious about my request policy or what I am working on next? I keep a brief and updated segment dedicated to this on my profile page.


Additional Credits:
Design: A big thanks to publicdomain.net, pinterest.com, clipartlord.com, shopify.com, and pngimg.com for the public domain pictures featured on my work! And specifically, thank you to prestofreshgrocery.com (pepperoni) and hy-vee.com (cheese) for allowing me to use photos for my use.

Technical: A HUGE thanks to SimPE.78, Adobe Photoshop Elements 13, FRAPS (Screenshots), Nvidia DDS Utilities (SimPE work), Mod The Sims, the awesome AriesFlare for the original mesh, the extremely helpful thread originally posted by Jasana_BugBreeder with tons of information about creating custom foods, and my mother for letting me use her camera to take photos of our homemade pizza casserole.

I could not have done this without all of their hard work before me!

Made this in my real kitchen, threw in some Italian sausage and black olives and lots of cheese. It turned out awesome. Pizza in a bowl. Thanks

Mmmm! I'm on a food downloading spree - can never have too many custom foods, ha! - and I just had to have this one! Thank you so much making and sharing. It looks very yummy! Possibly extra yummy because it's getting late and I'm hungry! :D
