Pizza Joes

I found this recipe on the blog cassiecraves.blogspot. I think her cooking is right up my alley!!

The Menu:
Pizza Joes



The Original Recipe:
This recipe is so adaptable to what your family likes. You can add in any pizza toppings such as mushrooms, green peppers, red onions, etc. to how you want to make it.

Pizza Joes

1 lb. ground beef
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 onion diced
1 green pepper, diced
1-14 oz. jar of your favorite pizza sauce
1 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup chopped pepperoni
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Hamburger buns split and toasted

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef until no longer pink. Add salt and pepper to season. Add onion, green pepper, and cook until vegetables are soft. Add pizza sauce, pepperoni, and spices. Cook on medium heat until heated through. Pile meat on hamburger buns and top with cheese.


The Way I Made It My Own:
I made it to the way I thought my kids would eat it (they won't eat green peppers.. and they will find it no matter how small I make it! Little stinkers!)

Yum, these were so good! I'm so glad you liked them. And I am LOVING the format of your blog -- how you give the original recipe and then talk about how you make it your own. I adpat pretty much every recipe I make, too. :)
