Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

If you’re a fan of pizza, you’ll be a fan of this recipe. Pepperoni has a very distinctive flavor and you’ll notice it in this recipe, but no worries. It’s a great compliment to the jalapeno flavor. Savor this one!


  • 10 jalapeno peppers
  • 5 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 5 ounces pepperoni slices
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

Cooking Directions

  1. Remove stems from the jalapeno peppers and remove innards through the top with a pepper corer. If you do not have a corer, use a knife or very thin spoon.
  2. Quarter the pepperonis to fit into the jalapenos.
  3. Stuff each jalapeno with layers of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese.
  4. In a shallow bowl, beat the egg.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix bread crumbs with dried basil.
  6. Dip the stuffed jalapeno peppers into the egg, then coat with bread crumbs.
  7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until peppers are heated through and turning golden brown.
  8. In a sauce pan, heat tomato sauce with oregano, about 10-15 minutes. Simmer longer for a deeper flavor.
  9. Pour tomato sauce over jalapeno poppers and serve!
