Sausage, Pepper, and Onion Pizza

A robust topping of turkey sausage, onions, and peppers crown this satisfying Chicago-style pizza. French baguette halves mimic the traditional deep-dish crust—a real timesaver.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2002

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 piece)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups vertically sliced onion
  • 1 cup green bell pepper strips
  • 2 (4-ounce) links turkey Italian sausage
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (8-ounce) loaf French bread, cut in half horizontally
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion and green bell pepper strips, and sauté 6 minutes or until tender.

Remove casings from sausage. Add sausage to pan, and cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring to crumble. Add crushed red pepper and diced tomatoes, and cook 5 minutes or until mixture thickens.

Spread sausage mixture evenly over cut sides of bread, and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Place bread halves on a baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Cut each pizza in half.
