Hot sausage gives this classic pizza a welcome spicy kick, and choosing turkey rather than traditional pork sausage keeps the calories and fat down.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray; let dough stand, covered, for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Remove casings from sausage. Add sausage to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring to crumble. Add onion and mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Add bell pepper; sauté 2 minutes.

Step 4

Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal; roll dough into a 12-inch circle on prepared baking sheet. Spread sauce over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with sausage mixture. Sprinkle cheeses over sausage mixture. Bake at 450° on bottom oven rack for 17 minutes or until crust is golden.

Nothing overly adventurous for this pizza, but it does taste good! Super simple to make and preparing this one was a snap. Used C.L.'s NY style pizza sauce recipe and forgot to add the parm cheese, but otherwise made as directed. I generally purchase Whole Foods wheat fresh pizza dough if I can; has a great chewy texture and a wonderful taste. Otherwise, this would go great on any pizza dough (or premade crust). I would definitely make again - the secret to good homeade pizza is to be sure to broil the last 2 minutes on high to get your cheese bubbly and brown! Enjoy!

Quick, easy and delicious. Teenager loved it - and so did we! Some small modifications. I used a Trader Joe's Ciabatta Flatbread instead of rolling out a pizza dough. And as I accidentally purchased sweet Italian chicken sausage rather than spicy/hot turkey sausage, I added a generous sprinkle of hot pepper flakes as I sauteed it. Also, sliced the sausage into discs instead of crumbling.

I usually make this with regular spicy Italian sausage, as the other is too hard to find. We love it!

This was amazing! I used a Boboli thin pizza crust instead of making the crust from fresh dough. I can't wait for leftovers tonight! Nine pts.

I cheated with a Boboli crust. DD thought the sausage was too spicy, but generally this was good and we will have it again.
