  • Makes

    2 pizzas (8 slices each)

  • Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 batch Best Pizza Dough (correct in RMS before running NAs)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, crushed red pepper flakes and fresh oregano leaves, optional
  • Directions

  • Divide dough in half. With greased fingers, pat each half onto an ungreased 12-in. pizza pan. Prick dough thoroughly with a fork. Bake at 400° until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until sausage is no longer pink; drain.
  • Spread pizza sauce over crusts. Top with cheese, onion, green pepper, mushrooms and sausage. Bake at 400° until golden brown and cheese is bubbling, 12-15 minutes. If desired, top with grated Parmesan cheese, crushed red pepper flakes and fresh oregano leaves. Or wrap pizzas and freeze for up to 2 months.
  • To use frozen pizzas: Unwrap and place on pizza pans; thaw in the refrigerator. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown.
