Fresh Mozzarella, Basil, and Chicken Sausage Pizza
Makes 6 servings (serving size: 2 slices of pizza)
1 pound fresh or frozen whole wheat pizza dough, thawed
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium tomatoes (about 10 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, divided
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, pulled into 1-inch chunks
2 links (6 ounces total) precooked Italian chicken sausage (such as Applegate brand), sliced
How to Make It
Position one oven rack in middle of oven and another on the lowest setting. Place a flat baking sheet on the bottom rack. Preheat oven to 475°.
Roll dough into a large, thin oval (about 18 inches long). Brush oil over dough.
Remove preheated baking sheet from oven. Slide dough onto sheet and return to bottom rack. Bake for 8 minutes, then remove crust from oven.
Meanwhile, clean hands, crush tomatoes, crushed red pepper, oregano, and 1/4 cup basil in a medium bowl.
Spread suace in an even layer over crust, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Top with mozzarella and sausage. Bake on middle rack an additional 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese melts. Sprinkle with remaining basil; cut into 12 slices or wedges and serve.
