I made these pork chops a long time ago, not sure how well they would go over. Pizza pork chops? And you make them in a crockpot? But I made them anyway and Scott really liked them. Even though he tends to like the traditional smothered or fried pork chops. Today, I finally got around to making them again. I was in the mood to make a slow cooker meal that was easy to prepare. You spend less than ten minutes getting these in the crockpot.
The only thing I add is more seasoning to the sauce- italian seasoning, basil, garlic, whatever I have on hand. Also, I serve it over white rice instead of orzo.
