…Because I haven’t shared nearly enough football-party recipes this season! Last weekend, I was craving pizza something fierce. It wasn’t a weekend day, so I told myself I couldn’t do anything about said pizza craving. Truth be told, I think it was a Tuesday night – too early in the week for me to cave in just yet.
Jason suggested a low-carb pizza. I’ve attempted several low-carb crusts, but just wasn’t in the mood to experiment after working all day. I thought about making Stuffed Bell Pepper Pizzas, except I was jonesing for Hawaiian Pizza – that’s pretty much the one pizza specialty both Jason and I can agree on, so I sent him the store to get prosciutto, and pineapple. I love subbing proscuitto in for ham on Hawaiian Pizza, it costs a little more, but it tastes so indulgent, and kind of fancy at home. I also like to add black olives to our pizza – we pretty much always have a jar of Lindsay Olives in the pantry. At the time, we had a can of ripe black, pitted olives on hand. Their sliced black olives would have saved me a step, but it’s not like it’s hard to slice a few whole olives, right? Join Club Lindsay to get a $1-off coupon, now.
These Hawaiian Pizza Bell Peppers are perfect for this coming weekend as we all sit around figuring out who is making their way to the Big Game – I only mildly care to be honest, I’m more excited about the food. As if you didn’t know this about me.
- 3 bell peppers, halved and hollowed (seeds removed)
- ⅓ cup pizza sauce
- ¼ tsp Garlic powder
- 6 slices of thin prosciutto
- 4 tbsp sliced black olives
- 4-5 chunks of pineapple, chopped in half
- 2 oz Mozzarella cheese (or any other cheese will do)
- Italian seasoning, to garnish (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350F
- To a baking sheet, lay pepper halves on face up. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of sauce into each pepper and top with a pinch of garlic.
- Top with cheese, prosciutto, and pineapple. Top with 4-5 olive slices, and add a little extra cheese at the end.
- Bake 9-11 minutes or until peppers are tender and toppings are hot and bubbly, and cheese is melted.
- Garnish with Italian seasoning, if desired.
