Pizza Perfection: Personalize Your Pepper

With this recipe, we’re going for all the classic supreme pizza ingredients. But if you want to mix and match your pizza toppings, you can get creative. 🧑‍🍳🍕

Leave out any toppings you don’t love. Or, add other flavors to the dish, like onions, cooked Italian sausage, diced ham, pineapple, or additional diced bell peppers!

How To Make Pizza Stuffed Peppers

1

Make the filling.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef until cooked through. Add the garlic and Worcestershire sauce and sauté for a couple of minutes. Then, pour in the marinara sauce and stir to combine. Remove the skillet from the heat.

2

Fill the peppers.

Lightly spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Arrange the six prepared bell peppers on the baking pan.

Fill the peppers with the saucy beef mixture. 

Tip: Don’t stuff to the top!

Fill each pepper about ⅔-¾ full, leaving just enough room for your toppings and cheese (without the pepper bubbling over!). 

Then, top your stuffed pepper with your favorite toppings, like pepperoni, black olives, and mushrooms. Evenly top with the cheese. 

Note: If you prefer your topping over the cheese instead of under, you can swap the last two steps.

3

Bake!

Gently tent the pizza stuffed bell peppers with foil (avoid the foil touching the cheese). Bake covered for the first part of the baking time. Then, uncover and bake until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly. 

Serve with breadsticks, and dig in!

4

Wash the dishes. How sad.
