Servings - 4 servings


  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 12 oz jar pizza sauce
  • 15 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning blend
  • 24 pepperonis
  • 16 oz penne pasta
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese, as garnish
  • Salad, as side dish


  • In the Instant Pot insert, whisk together the chicken broth, pizza sauce, diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning.
    Stir in the pepperonis and the paste. Gently stir to combine, and press the pasta so its all underwater. If needed, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water so that the pasta is all underwater.
  • Set to Sealing.
  • Pressure cook on High, Manual mode for 6 minutes.
  • Let naturally release for 10 minutes, then vent and release remaining pressure.
  • There might be some liquid floating on the top, but give it a good stir through and remove the insert from the base. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
  • Spoon into serving bowls and top with a few pinches of shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheeses.
  • Serve Instant Pot Pizza Pasta with side salad.
