Updated Sep 17, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds bulk Italian sausage
  • 2 cups frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions (from 1-pound bag), thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pepperoni
  • 1 can (15 oz) pizza sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 roma (plum) tomatoes, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
  • 18 sandwich buns
  • 1 1/4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (5 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Cook sausage in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat 9 to 11 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain.
  • 2
    Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix sausage, stir-fry vegetables, pepperoni, pizza sauce and Italian seasoning in cooker.
  • 3
    Cover and cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours.
  • 4
    Stir in tomatoes. To serve, fill buns with sausage mixture and sprinkle with cheese.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Try making this recipe with a shredded Italian cheese blend instead of the mozzarella.
  • tip 2
    If the Italian sausage has a casing, remove and discard it before you brown the sausage. Stir the sausage frequently during cooking to break it up into small pieces.
  • tip 3
    For an instant party, set the slow cooker on the counter or buffet table along with a basket of buns. Just add deli salads, pickles, olives and brownies for dessert.
