Pizza's are something most of us crave but are well aware that they are not particularly healthy. A capsicum stuffed with all of the yummy ingredients is the ideal solution. Healthy, delicious and appropriate at any time of day.

Getting started
2

Preheat oven to 200ºC.

3

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat.

4

Add in ground meat, garlic, and cook while crumbling with a wooden spoon until no longer pink, about 6-8 minutes.

5

Drain excess oil and season with Italian seasoning, sea salt and pepper, then stir in the diced tomatoes.

6

Continue to simmer on medium-low heat for 8-10 minutes, or until sauce thickens.

7

Pour the passata sauce into the bottom of the casserole dish and spread with a spatula.

8

Arrange the peppers, cut side up as shown, and evenly spoon in the meat mixture.

9

Sprinkle with shredded cheese and arrange pepperoni slices and olives on top.

10

Bake for about 15-20 minutes or so until peppers are tender-crisp and cheese is nice and melty.
