Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Skillet

My family loves this Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Skillet with texas toast and a salad.  This warms up great, too.

1 pound pork sausage, regular or hot

1 onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning

few drops hot sauce, Optional

1 (26 ounce) jar of your favorite pasta sauce

1 cup water

8 ounces penne pasta (can use just about any kind of pasta)

1 cup pepperoni slices

1 to 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


Brown sausage, onion and green paper.  Drain. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, hot sauce, pasta sauce and water.  You can either cook your pasta ahead and add to the sausage or add it uncooked and simmer for about 20 minutes or until pasta is cooked. (If putting uncooked pasta in the skillet, cover your skillet while simmering)   Sprinkle pepperoni slices on top along with the cheese. Simmer until pepperoni is hot and cheese is melted.  Makes about 8 servings. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks, Judy. Just happened to see this recipe and thought, hey, I have all those ingredients, that’ll be supper tonight. So, I added some bacon to my sautéing onions and threw in a little bacon to crisp, before I put the sausage on. Everything smells so good, too bad it’s a long way until dinner time.

    • Not written to well (in my excitement), should be: “added some diced red pepper” to the onions….!

      • Do you still use green pepper?

      • Robin, I only had the red pepper and didn’t want to run to the market, so that was all I used. It probably changed the taste a little, but I liked the sweetness of the red peppers.

  3. This looks wonderful. Pinning!
