Ingredients

  • 8 Mini Sweet Peppers Cut in half and seeds removed.
  • 4 String Cheese Sticks Cut into 4 lengthwise pieces each
  • 16 tsp. Pizza Sauce
  • 32 Mini Pepperoni Slices You can also cut regular pieces of pepperoni.

Instructions

  1. Cut peppers lengthwise and clean out the seeds and ribs. Cut the string cheese sticks into 4 equal lengthwise pieces.

  2. Lay the peppers down and add 1 tsp. of the sauce, then the string cheese slice (you may need to cut to fit), then pepperonis. Work until you have all 16 halves completed.

  3. You can broil these a few inches from your oven broiler for 3-5 minutes (watch them closely!) OR AIR FRY THEM (my preferred method) at 360 degrees for 6-8 minutes.

Recipe Notes

Get creative with these. I think pesto would be yummy with chicken and mozzarella as well. You can also use shredded cheese if that's all you have. It's just really easy to use the sticks because they slide right into the pepper.
