    These look excellent!! Have my groceries / meals all planned out for this week but they may be making an appearance next week….

    Loving your recipes! Especially that they are lower in carbs but still delicious

  • You’re always my go-to for quick, easy, and healthy recipes. These definitely did not disappoint! So delicious! Everything a pizza should be and more 🙂

  • I did not see the pepperoni’s added to the instructions. I am assuming they are cooked in with the ground meat or chicken portion of this recipe.

  • Lexi, these look amazing! I’ve done stuffed peppers before but typically with a bean + quinoa and corn or other veggies. These are a different twist that I will definitely try! I think my husband would really like them 🙂 thanks for the great recipe!

  • Usually, peppers are ON the pizza, what a brilliant way to reverse the whole thing ! I love it !

    Now to try putting the meatballs ON the spaghetti (just kidding)

  • Finally a stuffed pepper I will eat! I never liked my Mom’s stuffed peppers because of the filling, but who doesn’t like pizza? Made these last night and everyone loved them! What a great recipe!

  • I really liked these. They tasted amazing!!! The only thing that I didn’t like was that they didn’t taste like pizza at all other than the Italian seasoning

  • These were great! I didn’t add as much pepperoni and I prob should have added it to the meat. Next time I might try topping it with marinara sauce before the cheese. Thanks!

  • Holy yumminess! Made this today in the crock pot because it’s crazy HOT here, about 3 hours on low( after cooking meat. Probably could have skipped that and let it go longer in crocky). I chopped up the pepper tops and threw those in , and added fennel seed to give a sausage vibe. Didn’t have any spinach and used roasted tomatoes from my garden and a can of fire roasted tomatoes, so it made a ton. I crammed 5 stuffed peppers in the crock pot and have 5 in the freezer ( this makes me ever so HAPPY!). Best of all: kid approved healthy yummy dinner! Yea!

    I’ve made these three times over a few months and they are a hit each time. A coworker brought them in once and everyone was loving on her stuffed peppers. She sent us the recipe and we have all made them and loved them. Thank you!

  • hi can these be made in advance? Or frozen? Just trying to make dinner party prep easier, so if you can let me know of a shortcut that’d be great, thank you!!

  • No words really for how good these are…perfect for a pizza obsessed family if you are sick of actual pizza! I did not boil the peppers as I wanted to use less dishes. Instead i baked them empty of fillings in the oven at 350 for approx 15 – 20 minutes before filling them. And then baked a little longer after filling. Really bad at tracking time when cooking so couldn’t tell you exact baking time unfortunately.
