Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°. Place a pizza stone or heavy baking sheet on bottom oven rack (keep the pizza stone or baking sheet in oven as it preheats).

  • Place the dough in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; pierce liberally with a fork. Microwave at HIGH 10 seconds. Discard plastic wrap.

  • Combine garlic, 2 teaspoons oregano, oil, and vinegar in a small bowl. Roll pizza dough to a 14-inch oval on a lightly floured surface. Carefully remove pizza stone or baking sheet from oven. Sprinkle cornmeal over pizza stone; arrange dough on stone. Brush dough evenly with oil mixture; top with sausage, bell pepper, and cheese. Bake at 450° for 13 minutes or until edges are browned. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon oregano and crushed red pepper. Cut pizza into 8 slices.
