Pizza Stuffed Bell Peppers
These Pizza Stuffed Bell Peppers have the flavors of my favorite pizza, but without the carbs!
Oh hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! How is the week treating you? I’m really excited to share these Pizza Stuffed Bell Peppers with you all today. You may be wondering – why are they called Pizza Stuffed Bell Peppers? Is there actually a pizza stuffed in there? ??
Ok, well no. There is not an actual pizza stuffed in the bell pepper. The idea is that I took my favorite pizza flavors (sausage, peppers and onion, if anyone was wondering) and put it in a bell pepper, then topped it with cheese. Why? Because it tastes amazing and as much as we would like to have pizza every day, we just can’t. With my birthday coming up soon and a fun trip planned, Mr. Briar and I are on a serious weight loss push, and ditching some carbs is the best way for us to watch the number on the scale drop. We aren’t exactly “low carb” – I still have sugar in my coffee and we eat bread and crackers sometimes. But the idea is to reduce the carbs and replace them with vegetables and protein. So I try to make our dinners more like these Pizza Stuffed Bell Peppers – not only are they low carb and high protein, but they are super filling and satisfying.
I found that the filling was the perfect amount to stuff six bell peppers – however that could vary depening on the size of the bell peppers – I chose large, roundish bell peppers and tried to pick ones with the four points on the bottom rather than the ones with the three points because that helps them sit evenly. There is a common myth that the peppers with the four points are female and the ones with three are male, but according to snopes that is untrue – because bell peppers are hermaphroditic. Who knew?
Another thing that will depend on your bell peppers is the final cooking time. Sometimes 45 minutes is enough, but it may take a little longer depending on the size, and thickness of the peppers. You want them soft and tender, so if they still seem underdone after 45 minutes continute to cook. You can tent them with foil if the cheese starts to get too brown. I’m perfectly happy to eat these until my birthday weekend, where I will be eating all sorts of delicious foods in Vancouver. Be sure to follow along on Instagram to see what I find! What are you up to this weekend?
Hi Laura, yay, I hope you loved them! You can always throw in a few extra spices if you are using ground meat instead of sausage, since the sausage has more flavor to begin with. Let me know how they turn out!
I love stuffed peppers and as much as I love pizza, it is extremely nice to have a version without all the carbs. Happy birthday! That’s so exciting that you’re going on a fun trip and celebrating in style!

What Designers Can Try From Martha Stewart?
Like every housewife, Martha Stewart, a long-time developer of experience, can teach a few things to UX practitioners to bring back users for more.
You can compare the experience of spending time with people living in their homes to experience a brand. When you enter the home of a truly wonderful host, you are faced with a number of carefully designed options designed to give you a positive experience. In other words: you are experiencing the ın brand ”of that household.
Pleasant tastes, ambience and lighting, welcoming cuddles and talking, the best hosts are planning every experience that their guests will experience, taking into account all their senses and emotional reactions. Like every brand, good hosts want their guests to come back for more.
Although some houses have played a role in persuading people to carefully consider their guests' multi-sensual needs while Martha Stewart, Candice Olson, and Jonathan Adler had such personalities, many homeowners have done this in multiple points of contact for generations. In many ways, we can say that homeowners are original experience designers.
Like every good host, brands also want consumers to enjoy the experience of their products. However, very often, they do not understand the spectrum of the multi-sensory needs of their customers and thus fall behind the expectations of the meeting.
Brands, Martha, Candice and Jonathan, by considering the three important principles, including the best daily hosts, brands can design meaningful, multi-sensory experiences and establish long-term relationships with customers.
