Pizza The Bell Pepper Way – metabolic balance Monday recipe

A fast and fun way to eat your vegetables and pretend it is a pizza.


  • Bell peppers
  • Tomato sauce
  • Grated Cheese (Your protein for this meal)
  • Pepper Flakes
  • Garlic
  • Basil, Thyme
  • Vegetable toppings you would like to add and which will stay on top of your pepper slices


Cut your pepper into four pieces so that each piece has a section of the outside skin (do not slice so that you have rings.. that will work for another recipe but not this one.

Lay the pieces flat on a baking sheet.

Add toppings to your pizza in layers.  Add the cheese last so it holds everything on top of the pepper piece.

Bake for ten minutes in the over.  This would also be a perfect recipe to try on your grill with a pizza stone. Cooking time would be about the same.

Serve while warm.  If you want, you can put your pepper pizza slice on rye toast to give it a bit of stability (The peppers will get a bit wobbly after baking.)

Inspiration from peas and crayons.
