Ingredients

  • For the filling:
  • 4 Strips of bacon, cooked and diced.
  • 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 a yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 a Green pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup White mushrooms, diced
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 pound Lean ground beef, (I use 93%)
  • 8 Leaves Green cabagge or butter lettuce. **
  • Toppings:
  • 4 Tbsp Organic Pizza sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Thinly sliced deli ham, diced
  • 8 slices Pepperoni
  • 1/2 Cup Reduced fat Mozzarella cheese, grated

Instructions

  • Put the 1/2 Tbsp olive oil in a large pan and heat on medium-high heat.
  • Add in the peppers and onions  and cook until softened, about 3 min. Add in the mushrooms and cook for another minute or two, until soft. Season with salt.
  • Heat a medium pan on medium/high heat and cook the ground beef until no longer pink inside, breaking it up as it cooks, about 5 minutes.
  • Divide the pizza sauce between the lettuce (or cabbage), followed by the cooked veggies, bacon, beef,  ham, pepperoni and cheese.
  • DEVOUR

Notes

** I love using green cabbage instead of lettuce. They are stronger and also give an extra crunch! Plus, cabbage has more nutrients than lettuce :)
