The recipe called for store made pizza dough. I had a packet of Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast on hand. This is a super easy recipe - no need to take the time to rise. Mix, knead, and roll it out - how simple is that!
Sweet Sausage and Red Pepper Pizza
Pizza Crust (I used Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast and followed the directions)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 links of Sweet Italian Sausage, casings removed
1/2 Red pepper, sliced into strips
1/2 Red onion, sliced into strips
1/3 cup pizza sauce
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons of cornmeal for crust
Heat skillet over medium high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Brown sausage in skillet. Break apart as it is cooking. Once browned, remove from skillet and wipe/drain oil from skillet.
Add sliced onions and peppers. Heat over medium high heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring to prevent scorching.
Dust pizza pan with cornmeal. Roll out pizza dough to spread over the pizza pan. Bake crust for 5 minutes at 400 Degrees.
Add pizza sauce after crust has baked for 5 minutes.
