The good, the bad, and the delicious…

  • Crock-Pot Pizza Casserole is loaded with protein and vitamin C and also has calcium, iron, and vitamin A.
  • Unfortunately, it also might be too high in cholesterol, fat, and sodium for some.

To make this recipe more diet-friendly…

  • To help lower the cholesterol and fat, most of the cholesterol is coming from the venison but some say it will actually lower your cholesterol if eaten in moderation. You could, however, lower the amount of added fat to the venison or add no fat and that will help.
  • The pepperoni and mozzarella cheese both have a lot of cholesterol, fat, and sodium. I don’t know of a healthy alternative for the pepperoni so maybe you could leave that out or cut the amount by half and you could opt to leave the cheese off or use healthier cheese.
  • To help lower sodium even further use low sodium pasta sauce or make your own.
