  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Press 1 pie crust into the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan.

  • Combine sausage, marinara, green bell pepper, and onion in a bowl. Fill the bottom crust with marinara mixture and top with mozzarella cheese. Cover with the second crust, crimping the edges to seal. Cut an "x" in the top crust to release steam. Sprinkle Italian seasoning and garlic powder over top crust and arrange pepperoni over seasonings.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes.

Made as written and this turned out pretty good. This is a recipe you could easily customize to suit your taste. Ground beef could be used instead of sausage and if using sausage I recommend using Italian sausage. I would have liked some sliced mushrooms and olives in the filling and will add them when I make this again. Overall good recipe and one that is quick and easy to prepare. Get creative and use cookie cutters to cut the pepperoni into your kiddos favorite shapes or do I like did and cut them into hearts to serve to your main squeeze. Read More
