6 Ingredient Breakfast Pizza Baked Peppers

Serves: 3

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 1 hour 5 mins


  • 1 pound ground italian sausage
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms, chopped
  • 4-5 basil leaves, torn
  • 6 eggs, whisked
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 3 bell peppers, cut in half, seeds removed


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Cut bell peppers in half and place in an greased 8×8 rimmed baking dish cut side up. (If any of the bell pepper halves are leaving to the side, ball up a piece of aluminum foil and place it in the crevices to help keep them sitting up right – this will keep the egg mixture for pouring out).
  3. Place italian sausage in a medium pan over medium heat. Break up with a wooden spoon. Once browned, add chopped mushrooms and cook until soft. Lastly, add pizza sauce, basil and a bit of salt and pepper then mix to combine.
    Whisk eggs in a large bowl then pour in italian sausage mixture and whisk to combine.
  4. Use a ladle to pour mixture into each pepper half.
  5. Place in oven to bake for 45-50 minutes, or until egg is completely cooked through and no jiggle remains.
  6. Let cool slightly before eating!
