Easy Instant Pot Pizza Pasta Recipe

Instant Pot Pizza Pasta is another delicious Instant Pot pasta dinner that is easy to make and equally delicious. This meal is always a great success, kids and adults love it equally. It helps that its made with easy to find ingredients and its ready in 30 minutes, just only by using the Instant Pot.

You don’t have to pre-cook the pasta, you just add everything to the pot and let it do its magic. The Instant Pot Pizza Pasta is hearty, cheesy and fantastically good.

The tart tomato sauce, the slightly salty pepperoni, create such an amazing and tasty meal. You can also customize it, add some bell peppers, or top the pasta with black olives and caramelized onions, The possibilities are endless!

Recipe Tips:

  • I always say this, but a good meat-centered meal starts with quality meat, preferably use organic beef for this meal.
  • Also, look for fresh meat, that has a bright color, and that has a 15-20% fat content to get great flavor and tenderness.
  • Browning the beef is essential, it will lock in the flavors and the beef juices and also elevate the meat flavor.
  • You don’t have to pre-cook the pasta for this recipe. Just add the uncooked pasta to the pot and 5 minutes on HP will give you al-dente pasta. 6 minutes will result in more well-cooked pasta.
  • Any ground meat can be used for this dish. Like, chicken, turkey or pork. The cooking time will still be the same if you use the same amount of the other ingredients listed in the recipe.
  • In addition, for a spicier kick, add red pepper flakes or hot sauce.
  • The Pizza Pasta can be made with pizza sauce, tomato sauce or marinara sauce. Also, you can use diced tomatoes in your favorite flavor.
  • I added an Italian four-cheese blend, mozzarella or provolone will also work well. For a spicier kick, you can use pepper jack cheese as well.
  • This meal can be made with other types of pasta, I like to use large shells, macaroni or elbows.
  • Instant Pot – I have the 6 quarts one. It makes weeknight meals so much easier.

How to store this pressure cooker pasta?

could you cook this in a normal crock pot?


easier on the stove in that case


how would you cook this on the stove. can't afford an instant pot



Looks yummy...but what would someone use if they didnt have a pressure cooker?



This has turned into a family favorite! All 3 of my kids love it!



This is really good! I can't eat beef so I make it with hot ground sausage. Easy and delicious.
