Pizza Sloppy Joes



TVWBB Honor Circle
Dh made these the other night, sorry, forgot to post. At the last minute, DH decided to cook some mushrooms for me and the Joes cooked a little longer than they should and got a little too dry. Other than that, we found them to be very good, but not as sloppy as we wanted. lol

Pizza Sloppy Joes

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 med. onion, chopped
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 jar. (14 oz. pizza sauce)
3 oz. sliced turkey pepperoni (about 50 slices), chopped
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
6 hamburger buns, split
6 TB. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

In a large nonstick skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain if necessary. Stir in the pizza sauce, pepperoni and herbs. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Spoon 2/3 cup beef mixture onto each bun; sprinkle with cheese. Place on a baking sheet. Broil 3-4" from the heat until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Replace tops.
