Grilled Bell Pepper Pizza

Anita and I love pizza, but we are also watching our carbohydrates. These grilled bell pepper pizzas solve that problem and then some! All of our favorite pizza toppings served on a wonderful bell pepper ‘crust’. I grilled the pizzas until the peppers were just starting to soften so they still had a bit of crunch to them. They were fantastic!
Grilled Bell Pepper PizzaGrilled bell pepper pizzas will definitely become a staple in our house. They aren’t exactly zero carbs (the peppers and sauce have a few grams of carbs), but they are mighty low in carbs and that’s good enough for us!

You don’t have to grill these ‘pizzas’, either. Just pop them in a 425 F oven instead.

Also try my sausage-stuffed grilled sweet peppers.

Prep Time 15 minutes

Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • Bell peppers various colors
  • Olive oil
  • Pizza sauce
  • Your favorite toppings black olives, crumbled cooked sausage, pepperoni, red pepper flake, etc
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Fire up your grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat.
  • Cut the peppers so that they form little bowls. I found that cutting them in half made for deeper bowls than I wanted (too much bell pepper!) so I trimmed them down so that there was a 1/4" - 1/2" deep bowl.
  • Remove any seeds.
  • Brush the outsides of the peppers with the oil.
  • Add your favorite toppings up to the top of the pepper 'bowls'.
  • Add cheese and place onto the grill.
  • Grill for 10-15 minutes or until the peppers have started to soften and the cheese is melted.
