|Sausage and Pepper Pizza, Farmers Wife Original|
Pizza Dough: adapted from Bread Machine Magic
(I made homemade but you can easily use a store bought dough)
This is for a bread machine - Makes a "medium" pizza
1 Cup Water
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Sugar
3 Cups Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
2 Teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
Pizza Sauce (I used my spaghetti sauce and added garlic and oregano to it)
1 lbs. Italian Turkey Sausage
2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/4 cup Turkey Pepperoni, chopped
1/4 Onion, diced
1/4 Yellow, Orange and Red Peppers, thinly sliced
Place dough ingredients in bread pan starting with wet ingredients. Select Dough setting, and press start. Once the dough is finished, using your hand form a round pizza crust either on your pizza pan or a pizza stone.
In a large skillet heat half the olive oil, and saute the onion, and peppers. Once soft, remove from pan and set aside. Place the other half of the oil into the pan and cook the sausage (remove from casing and crumble into pan) until browned. Then add the pepperoni and cooked peppers back in. Pre-Heat oven to 350F degrees. Spread desired amount of sauce on to pizza crust, and then top with half the sausage mixture. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese, and then add remaining sausage mixture. Then top with mozzarella and bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Serve warm.
While I absolutely adored this pizza, my Hubby was slightly less enthused... lol! So overall I'd give this 4 stars.
