Sloppy Joe Pizza


sloppy-joe-pizza

I started mentioning this meal to my family several day before I actually made it. No one said anything but I got “The Look.” The look that says she really has gone too far this time.

I love homemade Sloppy Joes but don’t make them very often.  A few days ago I really wanted to make them again but was thinking about my Meal Inspiration piece (click for link to post). Take a tried and favorite dish and turn it into something else. This was easy. Instead of putting the loose meat on a roll I put it on a pizza crust!

Verdict:

This pizza was delicious! It was very hearty, most of us only had one slice with a salad. The meat was savory and topped with a mixture of shredded cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese made it taste amazing.

You can use a homemade pizza crust, store purchased pre-made crust or a store purchased pizza dough. This makes one extra-large hearty pizza or two smaller ones.

  • 1 large green bell pepper, diced

    How creative! Per my own personal preferences, I’d have to substitute the beef for ground turkey, but sounds super delish! 🙂

      Yes! Make it how you like it. Add whatever ingredients you like and leave out those you don’t. Always my motto.
