This is what happens when hubby and I make meals without planning. It is usually an overload of... something. In this case, toppings. But hey, I am not complaining. When it comes to pizza, I love my meat and mushrooms!
By the way, if you look closely, you'd notice that one side has more meat than the other. Guess whose half that is!
What you need:
quarter of a pound cooked sausage meat
1/4 Vidalia onion, sliced
8 oz can of mushrooms
2 to 3 tablespoons tomato sauce
1 tomato, roughly chopped
slices of mozzarella cheese
dried thyme (to taste)
dried basil (to taste)
about 2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
What to do:
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Prepare/knead dough according to package directions. Place on round baking pan and drizzle with olive oil. Using a pastry brush, spread the olive oil so it would cover the whole middle area. Sprinkle salt on the edges of the dough.
Spread tomato sauce on top of dough. Cover with mozzarella cheese slices. Top with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and sausage. Season with thyme and basil.
Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until dough is cooked according to package directions.
Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:
1. I used sweet Italian sausage in this recipe. Feel free to use the regular or spicy variety!
2. Dried oregano would be a nice touch to this dish.
3. No tomato sauce? Use spaghetti sauce! It works well too!
