muffin-style cheeseburger pizza


  • 1 1/2 pounds Ground Beef (95% lean)
  • 2 cups pasta sauce (any variety)
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 English muffins, split, toasted
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking beef into small crumbles, stirring occasionally. Add pasta sauce, onion, bell pepper, Italian seasoning and salt; continue cooking 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.

Top each muffin half evenly with beef mixture and cheeses. Bake at 400°F 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted.
