In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; crumble in ground beef. Cook for 5 minutes or until browned; drain off excess fat. Add onion, pepperoni and mushrooms; cook for 5 minutes or until onion and mushrooms are tender. Stir in pizza sauce and green pepper; simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until thick and saucy.
