Updated Dec 8, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 jar (14 oz) pepperoni-flavored or regular pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe olives, if desired
  • 6 sandwich buns, split
  • 1 cup shredded pizza cheese blend (4 oz)

Steps

    In 10-inch skillet, cook beef, onion and bell pepper over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.

    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.
