And this recipe is super easy to make since it only requires a handful ingredients and comes together in no time at all. And, of course, it’s so darn tasty. Mal raved and raved (and raved) about this dish, which is especially important because he’ll totally tell me if my cooking stinks! Haha! He’s not one to sugarcoat and that’s why I love him so much. Anyway, we’re really loving this Pizza Cottage Pie, and I hope you decide to try it soon!

Easy Pizza Cottage Pie

  • Author: Tina


Makes 6 Servings


  • 28 ounces mashed potatoes (I used a bag of the frozen ones from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 2 tbsp pizza seasoning
  • 1.5 cups finely chopped peppers and onions + 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top
  • 1/2 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella


Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Prepare mashed potatoes. Cook ground beef in a large skillet on the stove top. Add pizza seasoning as well as the peppers and onions. (I used frozen peppers and onions and then just threw them in my food processor for a hot second. I used the leftovers in a Hash Brown Breakfast Bake.)

When the ground beef is finished cooking, pour it into a rectangular baking dish and then spread the mashed potatoes on top. Sprinkle the top with cheese and the extra peppers and onions. Bake for 25 minutes and then turn up the oven to broil for 3-5 minutes until the top is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and serve!

  1. I love this idea! Adding to my menu planning for next week although I’ll probably reduce the beef and add a bunch of veggies (thinking mushrooms & zucchini) to meat mixture. Loving all of your quick & easy recipe posts!

    1. @Nadine: Good idea – one of the grandmas on “Clash of the Grandmas” (Food Network) got eliminated because she didn’t put enough sauce in her shepherd’s pie 🙂

  2. Just bought the ingredients to try this. I’m substituting the ground beef for Seitan and adding mushrooms. Thanks for the inspiration and can’t wait to try it.

  3. All of these suggestions are great! I’m thinking sausage, mushrooms, onions & peppers would work great. OR, maybe a taco flavored filling? Some black beans, corn, tomatoes with ground beef. Wonder how that would be with the mashed potatoes…
