How do you make Keto Pizza Stuffed Peppers?
I am not big on meal prep, but I often cook some meal ahead of time just to make things a little easier during the week. This is one of those recipes. I like to cook the Italian Sausage a little earlier so when it is actually time to make it they can be assembled in less than 10 minutes.
Once the Italian sausage has been cooked you remove the stem from the bell pepper along with any seeds or veins, slice lengthwise. Place the bell pepper halves in a baking dish or cast iron skillet, set aside.
In a medium size mixing bowl combine the sausage, chopped pepperoni, cheese, and low carb marinara, stir well. Spoon the mixture into the pepper and really try to pack it down as much as you can so they are very full. Top with shredded mozzarella and bake.
