Pizza Stuffed Peppers

A little bit bit of pizza sauce adds just enough pizzazz to quench that pizza craving.

Added bonus – they can be cooked on the grill and the heat up well as leftovers!

Pizza Stuffed Peppers

1 lb Grass-fed ground beef
4 Bell peppers
1 fresh tomato
1/4 cup Contadina Original pizza sauce
Basil paste
Garlic paste
Dried Oregano
Fresh mozzarella mini balls
Shredded mozzarella
Grated Parmesan

Trim tops off & halve the peppers. Mince the tops and add to frying pan. Add ground beef and cook until browned through. Add garlic & basil paste to taste. Once stirred through, add 1/4 cup pizza sauce and bring back up to temperature.

Place the peppers in a baking dish. Divide the hamburger mixture equally between the pepper halves. Cut each mini mozzarella ball into 4 pieces. Put 3 cubes onto each pepper. Dice the tomato and add on top if each pepper.

Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella, grated parmesan & oregano. Bake at 350° until the peppers are your desired texture and the cheeses are melted and starting to turn golden.


Serving Suggestion … Add a small side salad with Blue Cheese dressing and a hard boiled egg to up your protein and fats.
