Ready for a new family favorite dinner? This Sloppy Joe Pizza is Amazing!

I hate to admit it, but our dinner routine is stuck in a bit of a rut…  We’d been pretty laid back during the summer- didn’t do too much planning ahead for the dinner menus, I just tried to keep the pantry and fridge stocked with easy meal options.  Now that school in back in session and our after school activities have picked back up, it’s definitely time to get back on track and organized with my menu planning.


When I first started this blog, I posted a menu plan each week. (I’ve got 125 weekly menu plans here if you want to check them out.)  At this point, I don’t think I will go back to posting my menu’s on the blog, but I’ll definitely get out my trusty dry erase menu planning board to help me get organized and back on track!

What’s a better way to kick-off my meal planning than with an easy and delicious #ManwichMonday family meal?  I always try to keep a can or two of the Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce on hand for a quick meal. My kids absolutely love Sloppy Joes.  (I’ve got a couple of yummy recipes based on Sloppy Joe’s here and here.)  Since I have all three varieties of Manwich in my pantry right now, we actually had Sloppy Joes’ twice this week!

The first meal was the Original Sloppy Joe Sauce, served on a bun. Everyone in my family is a fan!

The second meal was this Sloppy Joe Pizza.  Hands down, my favorite meal of the week.  I didn’t actually eat the pizza crust, but the flavors of the ground beef, Thick and Hearty Sauce, cheese, and the sauteed peppers and onions were delicious! (Ok, so my kids complained about the added peppers and onions, but they were easy for them to remove and just add to my plate- lol!)

 Sloppy Joe Pizza Recipe

  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced (red, green or both)
  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • 1 can Manwich Thick and Chunky
  • 1 cup shredded Colby Jack Cheese
  • 1 premade/prebaked pizza crust


  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. In a large saucepan saute onions and peppers in a bit of oil until crisp/tender. Set aside.
  3. Brown Ground beef in saucepan.  Drain and add Manwich Sauce.  Let simmer for a few minutes.
  4. While sauce and meat are simmering, pre-bake pizza crust about 5 minutes to help keep it from getting too soggy.
  5. Add beef/sauce mixture to pizza crust, top with cheese and onions and peppers.  (You will probably have a bit left over- possibly even enough for 2 pizzas.)  Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and crust has turned golden brown.

  11. Oh my goodness!! You make me hungry right now, I love eating any kind of pizza, yours looks fantastic.

  12. I grew up on Manwich! I would absolutely love combining my childhood favorite with pizza. Yum!

  13. Never realized that Sloppy Joe was essentially a sauce. Now that I know I am going to buy a can or two–some hamburger and a roll or two and make some up. That pizza idea sounds like heaven!

  14. Pizza is my absolute favorite food, and I've never made it sloppy joe – LOVE the idea. Seriously, this idea rocks. And I love your idea of a dry erase menu planning board – I'm going to try that, or maybe chalk or something. But something central where my family can see it – and no more "what's for dinner?" Great recipe thanks!

  15. What a unique way to eat both pizza and sloppy joe! It looks delicious.
