Rated the recipe three stars, but I must admit to a variation and a suggestion for next time. My guys said I should go ahead and print this out for the file, so perhaps I have underrated it. I made this pizza on Boboli shells; the remainder of the recipe was made as written. Next time I will use hot sausage and add garlic and salt. It was just a bit too bland for my taste.
Sausage, Pepper, and Onion Pizza
Randy Mayor; Katie Stoddard
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.
