Italian Beef and Pepper Pizza
In our last post “we” shared our……..yes we both made an Italian Beef recipe, and since we couldn’t decide which one was better so, we posted them both!
Now, what to do with the left overs………???????? Ahhh………. but of course… pizza!!
We eat pizza…….a lot………I mean like two or three times a week a lot. I have discovered one thing in writing this blog………days I am not making a recipe, I don’t want to cook anything too difficult and I really don’t want to have to clean up the kitchen……ugh!
This is where I will tell you, Tim is a dish washing man!!!! He does dishes all the time, and for that I pledge to him my eternal gratefulness………..I hate to do dishes!!!!
But, the original idea for this pizza came form Tim and the Italian Beef recipe. So, all the credit for the idea goes to my wonderful husband. I must say the pizza is a total winner!
A pre-made crust……..I am a huge fan of the Boboli Pizza crust, either thin or original. I use them all the time……..simple, tasty and you can have one on hand for an impromptu pizza night.
We topped the crust with a jarred marinara sauce, but use your own recipe if you wish, same with the pizza crust, you can make your own homemade if you have the time, or the inclination……….the day I made this I had neither…….lol.
Chunks of the juicy Italian beef went on next. Sliced colored peppers, I used red, orange, and yellow, but any color will do………really, I just didn’t have any green ones…….my bad. I can’t believe I just used that term…….I really don’t like it……but it fit.
Onions came next, then I used the pepperocini peppers from the Italian Beef, onto the pizza too, they were cooked in all that yummy juice and added an bit of spiciness, like a warm, comfy spice not a blazing hot burn your mouth spice.
Covered with sliced provolone cheese and into the oven……….25 minute later………..heaven on a pizza stone! A note on pizza stones, for me Pampered Chef has the best one around. I have had mine for years and it keeps getting better with age. The darker the stone the better it cooks.
It was sooooo good! Tim and I ate half for lunch and the other half for a late night snack. I was just as good the second time around.
So, after you decide whose Italian Beef recipes is better…….wink, wink……..try the Italian Beef and Pepper Pizza with the left overs………it will make your mouth happy!!!
