Some of you might not know this about me but I have a "day job." I spend my days working at a large University and as you can imagine this is a very busy time of the year for us. That means when I get home from work I am exhausted. Absolutely spent. So, quick dinners that take minimal time and effort are essential!
This recipe fits the bill. Quick, easy and loaded with veggies with tons of flavor. I would stick this one in your back pocket for this coming school year.
Pour in a jar of pizza sauce
Pizza Sloppy Joes
(serves 4--2 each)
1/4 red onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1 pound ground beef
salt and pepper for seasoning
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1 jar pizza sauce
8 pieces of frozen garlic bread
2 cups shredded mozzarella
Start by placing the ground beef in a medium skillet on medium high heat. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until no longer pink. Then add the pepperoni and cook for about 3 minutes or so. If there is a lot of grease, at this point, drain the grease and discard. Pour the pizza sauce into the skillet with the meat, stir to combine. Add the veggies to the skillet and let simmer while you work on the garlic toast.
Place a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the frozen garlic toast to the pan and cook on each side for about two minutes.
Once the garlic toast is cooked, spoon the veggie and meat mixture onto the toast. Sprinkle with cheese and a little bit of the pizza seasoning.
Place under the broiler to melt the cheese.
Remove from the pan and enjoy!!!
