Ingredients

  • 8 mini bell peppers
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat your broiler on high (450 degrees F). Position an oven rack 6 inches from the heating element. Line a broiler-safe rimmed baking sheet with unbleached, broiler-safe parchment paper or with nonstick foil.
  • Leaving the stems intact, cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the membranes and seeds.
  • Place the bell pepper halves, cut side down, on the baking sheet, and spray their bottoms with olive oil.
  • Turn the bell peppers cut side up. Fill each bell pepper half with about a teaspoon of pizza sauce, and about 1/2 tablepsoon mozzarella. Spray the tops with olive oil.
  • Place the stuffed mini peppers 6 inches from the flame (not directly under), and broil until cheese is browned, about 5 minutes.
