Pizza Stuffed Jalapenos with Sausage, Peppers and Onion

Some of the 'penos in my planter got nice and chubby by the end of season... Perfect for stuffing:@) These Pizza Stuffed Jalapenos with Sausage, Peppers and Onions were a fantastic game day treat! What's really great about this recipe ideas is, you can make just a few with leftover (or saved) cooked sausage or plan for a crowd and make a big batch. I had some Italian sausage in the freezer that needed to be used up, so I browned it for stuffed shells but scooped out a couple tablespoons for these stuffed jalapenos. Use your favorite purchased or homemade pizza sauce and add anything you like on pizza. Easy and very good!
I'm guessing this is a pretty good low carb munchie option too. 

Pizza Stuffed Jalapenos with Sausage, Peppers and Onion-and anything else you'd like:@)
Chubby jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise and cleaned of seeds and membranes
Crumbled Italian sausage, cooked with peppers and onions
Any other pizza topping additions you'd like, small diced
Mozzarella cheese, about 1/4 as much as the topping mixture, save extra for topping
Pizza sauce, your favorite, just enough to lightly wet the above ingredients
Oregano for topping
  1. Mix everything and spoon into jalapenos. Place 'penos on foil lined baking sheet for easy clean-up. 
  2. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Remove from oven and turn on broiler.
  3. Top peppers with extra mozzarella and sprinkle with oregano, place under broiler until cheese is golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and let sit for five minutes or so before serving.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)


  1. Who could resist??? Love that these have Italian sausage---would be great to have these on a platter with some bacon wrapped ones, too. Double yum!

  2. My jalapeno plants were pathetic this year! Didn't help that we have been redoing our deck all summer and alas - it still isn't done. Hubby finally emailed them and asked if they wanted us to take as long in paying them as it has taken them to finish! Miracle - they came out two days later after not seeing them for three straight weeks - but still haven't finished!
    The peppers are so cheap at the store, that I have just bought them. I think I could eat they whole batch. Stuffed Jalapenos are some of my favorites.

  3. Wow, Lynn, these stuffed peppers look terrific and the perfect game day munchie! I have sausage, but need to get some jalapenos. You share the best recipes! it would be like eating pizza without the crust.

  4. These sound great with addition of Italian sausage Lynn!
