Yield Makes 6 servings
Equal parts salad and pizza, this hearty pie is a fresh, new spin.


  • 1 medium-size sweet onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 pound smoked link sausage
  • 1 (16-oz.) package prebaked Italian pizza crust
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) freshly shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 cup firmly packed arugula
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon, halved

How to Make It

  1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Brush onion with 1 Tbsp. oil. Grill onion, covered with grill lid, 6 minutes on each side. Grill sausage 4 minutes on each side; slice.

  2. Brush pizza crust with 1 Tbsp. oil. Grill crust, oil side down, 2 minutes. Turn crust over, and brush with 1 Tbsp. oil; sprinkle with cheese and 1/4 tsp. salt. Grill 2 minutes or until cheese melts.

  3. Toss together arugula, parsley, pepper, sausage, onion, and remaining 1 tsp. salt. Top pizza with salad; squeeze lemon juice over salad. Serve immediately.
