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.

If using 16 oz. Italian sausage, follow same instructions as 8 oz. Italian sausage, adding 1/4 tsp. salt and working in batches if necessary until sausage reaches minimum internal temperature.
If using diced chicken tenderloin, carefully drain liquid. Follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 3, stirring often, breaking up meat, until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 3, breaking into small pieces until warmed through, 4-6 minutes.
If using ground beef, follow same instructions as Italian sausage in Step 3, breaking up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.
Prepare the Ingredients
Stem green bell peppers, halve lengthwise, and remove seeds and ribs.
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Slice pepperoncini into ¼" rounds.
If necessary, remove Italian sausage from casing.
Start the Peppers
Place green bell pepper halves on prepared baking sheet and top with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into peppers.
Arrange pepper halves cut-side down. Roast in hot oven until tender but still crisp, 13-15 minutes.
While peppers roast, make filling.
Make the Filling
Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add Italian sausage to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and meat reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.
Transfer sausage to a plate and wipe pan clean. Return pan to medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and mushrooms to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly brown, 3-4 minutes.
Remove from burner. Stir in Italian sausage, marinara, and a pinch of salt until combined.
Finish the Peppers
Carefully (peppers will be hot!), flip pepper halves cut side up. Distribute filling evenly among pepper halves and top with cheese.
Roast again until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly, and peppers are fully tender, 9-11 minutes.
Finish the Dish
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing with pepperoncini (to taste). Bon appétit!
