Ingredients

1/2 pound bulk Italian turkey sausage
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
2 medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated artisan pizza crust with whole grain
2 cups shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
Chopped green onions, if desired

Preparation

Step 1: Heat oven to 400°F. In 6-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Stir in mushrooms, tomatoes and pizza sauce. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm

Step 2: Spray bottom and side of 12-inch cast-iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Unroll dough in skillet; press in bottom and at least halfway up side. Bake 5 minutes. Sprinkle 1 3/4 cups of the cheese over dough. Spoon sausage and vegetable mixture over cheese; top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.

Step 3: Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with green onions. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. To serve, cut into 6 wedges.

Expert Tips:

  • Want a more authentic deep dish? Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cornmeal in the cast-iron skillet before adding the dough.
  • In place of the turkey sausage, use pork sausage, making sure to drain the cooked sausage before adding the remaining ingredients.
