print recipe


  • 6 large russet baking potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • Olive oil spray
  • Kosher or sea salt
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup mini turkey pepperoni slices
  • 1½ cups shredded pizzeria-style cheese
  • Optional toppings: sliced black olives, sour cream, sliced green onions

cooking methods

  • Bake
  • Stovetop


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Dry potatoes and pierce with a fork in several spots. Spray with olive oil and lightly sprinkle with salt. Place directly on center oven rack. Bake 1 hour or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in large skillet over medium-high heat, cook and crumble sausage until no longer pink; drain. Add tomatoes, Mama Mia™ Marinara Sauce Mix and pepperoni. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes. Salt and pepper as desired.
  3. Cut a slit in the top of potatoes. Squeeze ends together to open the potatoes. Top with marinara sauce, cheese and desired toppings.

Makes 6 servings. Serve with steamed or sautéed broccoli.

Optional: For faster cooked potatoes, pierce and microwave 7-10 minutes or until fork tender. Skins will not be crispy like the baked potatoes.

Make ahead & freeze: Place sausage in a quart freezer bag. Place tomatoes, Mama Mia™ Marinara Sauce Mix and pepperoni in a gallon freezer bag. Place both bags in a gallon freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Continue with step 1.
