Jimmy Dean Mini Pizzas

Yield 16 pizzas


  • 1 package Italian Flavor Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage
  • 8 soft-style English muffins, split
  • 24 ounces (3 cups) shredded mozzerarella-Parmesan cheese blend
  • 16 slices tomato, 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter, 1/4-inch thick
  • Garlic salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil (or 6 teaspoons dried)
  • Freshly ground black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Place English muffins cut side up on a baking sheet; bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink. Drain well; allow to cool slightly. Add 1 3/4 cup of cheese to sausage; stir well to blend. Spread 2 tablespoons sausage mixture on each English muffin half; top each with a tomato slice. Sprinkle each with garlic salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon fresh basil. Top each pizza with about 1 tablespoon shredded cheese. Bake pizzas 7 to 9 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
