A caterpillar ate all the leafs on my pepper plant. Then the plant got cut in half by the caterpillar. Is it possible to save the plant, or would I be better off getting a new pepper plant?

This sounds like a new seedling...
While they often do send out new growth after this kind of devastating trauma... it can be painfully slow.

probably be a happier result to get another plant... or two.

Welcome!

It depends upon how much plant is left. If there are nodes (the spots where leaves were) and roots, it will grow again.
