This Pizza Tater Tot Casserole reminds me of my Bacon Cheeseburger Tater Tot Bake and Ravioli Pizza Bake recipes. Delicious and super easy to make!

Casserole dishes like this one are perfect when you have a bunch of hungry kids to feed and are not sure what to make for dinner. And the best part is it only takes an hour to make.

You can also easily modify the ingredients to your liking. For example, you can use Ground Turkey instead of Ground Beef. Or Turkey Pepperoni instead of regular pepperoni.

I usually always have some pizza sauce on hand so that is what I like to use to make this casserole but in a pinch, you can use some marinara or pasta sauce. Use what you got on hand!

I prefer to use Mozzarella cheese when making pizza so that is what I used for this pizza tater tots casserole but you can use any good melting cheese like Monterey Jack Cheese if that is what you have available.
