The combo of sausage and peppers is always fantastic. Chicken sausage is a nice, lighter alternative to regular Italian sausage.

Gluten-Free: Use gluten-free rolls or bread.

Vegetarian: Use mushrooms instead of chicken sausage.

Paleo: Serve over cauliflower rice instead of as sandwiches. Use ghee, Paleo-friendly marinara sauce, and sausage. Omit mozzarella cheese.
