Pizza Sloppy Joes
Pizza! I’m not sure what’s up with my obsession with my pizza obsession lately. My parents are probably rolling their eyes so hard whenever they see me sharing a pizza inspired recipe because when I was little I used to lay on the floor and have a tantrum when we had pizza for dinner. Apparently my palate has become more refined with age… ?
Anyway my hatred has been replaced with (there’s a thin line there, you know). And now I love to indulge and cheesy, saucy goodness like in this ridiculously simple but ridiculously yummy Pizza Sloppy Joes recipe with all the fixin’s. Ground beef with pizza sauce, pepperoni, and lots of gooey cheese. It will absolutely be a hit at family dinner and you can make it in just 30 minutes!
Plus you can dress it up with all your favorite pizza toppings. Peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives… Or you can sub in some other meats like half Italian sausage with the ground beef. My current favorite pizza is pepperoni and bacon. It is soooo good. Add a few strips of chopped bacon in with the ground beef when you cook it. There are just so many options! Now my tummy’s growling…
