Jr loves pizza. The Hub loves pizza. KERI LOVES PIZZA.
Anything that takes all the flavors of pizza and puts a bit of a new spin on the old fave seems like a good idea to me. In that spirit, I give you Pizza Stuffed Peppers!
To make, pre-heat the oven to 350.
Then half and clean 2 bell peppers, and place the 4 halves cut side up in a baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine 1/2 lb browned ground Italian sausage, 1/2 lb browned ground beef/turkey/whatever (I brown this when I get it home from the store, then freeze for easy use later) 1/2 cup pizza sauce, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, and pizza toppings to your liking- I diced up 6 or 7 peperoni slices for the batch, and added black olive slices after reserving 1/4 of the mix for Mr Picky-pants (The Hub.)
Stuff the pepper halves with the mix, top with more cheese, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Pizza is ready!
