If your family love pizza, this recipe is for you! We make homemade pizza pretty much every week and we’re always changing up the toppings to discover new favorites. My girls also love pizza-flavored anything!

Mini Sweet Peppers from Pero Family Farms make the perfect vessels for getting those pizza flavors into mouths too. They’re crunchy, sweet and colorful. Just cut them in half, scoop out any seeds and fill with your favorite toppings before baking.

I will say, these mini sweet peppers are get cooked or raw – in fact, we’re big fans of these Chickpea Salad Stuffed Peppers for lunch! Or these Taco-stuffed ones that are wrapped up as mummies for Halloween.

Key Ingredients

  • Mini Sweet Peppers: These usually come in a bag in your local produce department. Ones that are on the larger size or “fatter” are best for stuffing.
  • Pizza Sauce: I always look for one that has the least amount of added sugar, but whatever is your favorite will work. No pizza sauce? That leftover marinara works too.
  • Shredded Mozzarella: The OG of pizza cheese, however you can use whatever cheese you’d like here. A little shredded Italian blend, Parmesan, provolone… go crazy!
  • Mini Pepperoni: If you can’t find the mini ones, just cut regular pepperoni into quarters. Or opt for turkey pepperoni, ham, sausage, etc. (meat based or vegan).

Frequently Asked Questions

Are mini sweet peppers the same as bell peppers?

Nope. Mini sweet peppers are smaller and sweeter. They have a thinner skin, making them perfect for kids and great for snacking.

Can they be made ahead of time?

They can, but they’re much better fresh out of the oven. However, you can prep your peppers ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. Then fill them up and bake them when you’re ready.

How do you store leftovers and reheat them?

Store leftover mini pepper pizzas in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the oven or toaster oven at 400F for 3-5 minutes, or until heated.
