Storing Leftovers

As with most things, these are best when they are fresh out of the oven, however, you can definitely store leftovers for future snacking. Once they are cooled, store the pizza stuffed mini peppers in an airtight container and store in the fridge. If you have lots of leftovers, you can layer the peppers, just be sure to use parchment paper between layers to avoid them sticking together.

To heat them up, pop them in the oven, toaster oven or air fryer until warmed through and the cheese is melty again.

Can you make these in advance?

These Pizza Stuffed Mini Peppers can be made in advance, making them a perfect party appetizer. You can assemble the stuffed mini peppers following the steps in the recipe, then pop them in the fridge, covered with plastic food wrap, until you are ready to bake them. Then all you have to do is pop them in the oven and serve them up to your guests.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
