Mini Pepper Pizzas
These hand-held Mini Pepper Pizzas embrace the deliciousness of pizza with a healthy twist! They include way more nutrients than the a bagel bite or pizza roll and they make a perfect appetizer for parties and a great healthy snack for kids… and adults!
Raw mini peppers are one of my favorite healthy snacks. They’re so perfect dipped in hummus or guacamole. You can eat them whole, seeds and all, so munch away.
These mini peppers were especially fresh and crisp with beautiful vibrant colors. Sweet peppers from Divine Flavor are seriously my favorite! And with good reason too – Divine Flavor produces high-quality, non-GMO foods grown in nutrient-rich, never over-farmed soil.

I decided to give these gorgeous sweet peppers a try, cooked, and this recipe for mini pepper pizzas did not disappoint. Not only was this fun finger food tasty, it was so easy to create. Sweet mini peppers are filled with pizza sauce, stuffed with mozzarella and topped with mini pepperoni, then broiled until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
These mini pepper pizzas make a for a crowd pleasing appetizer or side dish, and obviously they are the perfect game day snack!

Yum! I love pizza any kinds! Without dough I’m ok too! I would love to try doughless pizza!
This is really great and the best part is I can make them and have them all by myself since my family doesn’t like peepers except me which is still a win win situation lol.
