All of the flavours of a pepperoni pizza with green peppers and olives in sloppy joe form, that’s quick and easy to make!

  • 1 pound ground beef (or Italian sausage with casings removed)
  • 4 ounces of pepperoni, sliced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 cups pizza sauce or marinara sauce
  • 1/3 cup sliced olives, drained (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning (or oregano)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 4 buns (gluten-free for gluten-free)
  1. Cook the ground geef, pepperoni, onion, and bell pepper in a large skillet/pan over medium-high heat, breaking the meat apart as it cooks, before draining off any excess grease.
  2. Add the garlic and paprika and cook until fragrant, about a minute.
  3. Add the pizza sauce, olives, Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Turn the heat off, mix in the mozzarella and let it melt.
  5. Divide the filling between the buns and enjoy!

Option: Add 1 tablespoon sriracha!
Option: Instead of the pepperoni, green pepper and black olives, use your favourite pizza toppings!
