- 2 (24 ounce) jars traditional spaghetti sauce
- 1 pound ground Italian sausage
- ½ pound bacon, chopped
- 1 pound ham, diced (about 1½ cups)

- 1 (16 ounce) tube refrigerated pizza crust
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted

- Add noodles, meatballs, pepperoni, and the second jar of spaghetti sauce to the baking dish with the meat mixture. Stir to combine.
