Make it Italian in 20 minutes! Pizza sauce flavors standard sloppy joes.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
small green bell pepper, chopped (1/2 cup)
jar (14 oz) pepperoni-flavored or regular pizza sauce
cup sliced ripe olives, if desired
sandwich buns, split
cup shredded pizza cheese blend (4 oz)
In 10-inch skillet, cook beef, onion and bell pepper over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
Stir in pizza sauce and olives. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
Spoon about 1/2 cup beef mixture on bottom half of each bun. Immediately sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons of the cheese; add tops of bun. Serve immediately or let stand about 2 minutes until cheese is melted.
Not a bell pepper lover? Go ahead and use celery instead.
