"I threw this together to use up some ingredients. It seems like a perfect weeknight meal that can be made in a flash. This recipe is very tweakable, so you don't have to use the same toppings listed here. Next time, instead of shrooms and peppers I will probably use anchovies & pineapple (my favorite pizza toppings!)"

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F.

Step 2

Cook your pasta according to your package's directions. Once done, rinse under cold water & drain.

Step 3

While pasta is cooking, brown the beef in the olive oil. Add salt & pepper as it cooks, if desired. Drain, if needed.

Step 4

Remove beef from heat and stir in the pizza sauce, cooked pasta and the chopped pepperoni.

Step 5

Spread pasta mixture in a sprayed 9x12-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese, then top with bell peppers, mushrooms and the sliced pepperoni.

Step 6

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is fully-melted and the sauce begins to bubble. Let rest for at least 5 minutes, then serve topped with red pepper flakes, grated Parmesan, Tobasco sauce, ketchup or whatever you usually put on pizza!
