How to Make Pizza Poppers


  1. The amounts here are approximate because you will have a variety of different size peppers. I like to lay my peppers out and see what side they lie the flattest on, that way you will have a more stable pepper. Then you will cut your peppers off diagonally just above the stem line. Now remove what few seeds are inside.
  2. Next dice up the pepperoni and Canadian bacon and grate your cheese and mix with pizza sauce altogether in a bowl, it's just that simple.
  3. Now gently press as much filling inside each pepper as you can, leaving it heaping on top. Bake in a preheated 425° oven for about 20 min. If grilling or smoking, time will depend on temp of grill or smoker.
