Pizza in a pepper? It's just crazy enough to work. In fact, this meal is crazy enough to be crazy-delicious, with savory sausage, meaty mushroom, and gooey, stretchy mozzarella. Add in a bit of marinara sauce, and you've managed to pizza a pepper. Crazy-delicious, crazy-easy… maybe this isn't so crazy after all.

    Begin the Peppers

    Place green bell pepper halves on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Massage oil into peppers. Arrange pepper halves cut side down. Roast in hot oven until crisp-tender, 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven. Peppers will finish cooking in a later step. While peppers roast, make filling.
