Sloppy Joe Pizzas

Now that my kids have started school, I’ve begun to think about easy meals I can prepare that will fit into our busy schedules. Especially on Mondays. What is about about Mondays that makes the entire day just hard to get through? It’s tough to get back into the routine after a busy weekend, so our Monday meals need to be fast, easy and delicious.

Manwich Sloppy Joe French Bread Pizza

This past Monday, I came up with this Sloppy Joe French Bread Pizza. I love me some sloppy joe sauce, as you can see with my recipes for One Pot Cheesy Chicken Pasta and Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole. For the Pizzas, I used the Bold variety, but you can also use the traditional or Thick & Chunky.

I started out sauteing some bell peppers and onions together, then added ground beef and Manwich Bold Sauce. I am kind of obsessed with bell peppers and use them for anything I can. The yellow and orange are my favorites because they are milder and have a sweeter flavor.


As a bonus, this adds some veggies to your pizza and your kids will (probably) never know. I also like to grate carrots into sauces like this.


The French Bread is sliced all the way lengthwise and then smothered with that tangy sauce and topped with shredded Cheddar and Jack cheeses.
