How to Make It

Step 1

Place Pizza Dough on a large sheet of parchment paper. Cover with a damp towel; let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 500°.

Step 3

While dough rises, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with sugar and salt. Continue cooking 15 to 20 minutes or until deep golden brown, stirring frequently.

Step 4

Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well.

Step 5

Roll dough into a 12-inch circle on parchment paper. Crimp edges of dough with fingers to form a rim. Slide dough and parchment paper onto a large baking sheet. Place on bottom rack in oven. Bake at 500° for 5 minutes.

Step 6

Spoon Pizza Sauce onto crust, spreading to rim. Top with cheese, onion, and sausage. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese melts. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes. Cut into wedges.

Step 7

Note: If using refrigerated Pizza Dough, let dough rise as directed in step 1 for 1 hour. Proceed as directed in recipe.

The best homemade pizza I've ever made, and I've tried several. Added some mushrooms to the onions for the last 10 minutes. Used a lower heat on the onions, med hi seemed too much for caramelizing - use your own judgement. Also used shorter time for the onions by about 5 minutes. I had JennieO breakfast sausage on hand, so that's what I used. An excellent pizza, very filling, loaded with toppings, really great.
