So, here's the sausage & pepper pizza a la Rachel Ray (and prepped by my husband, it was his night afterall).
1 lb whole wheat pizza dough
1/4 cup EVOO
1 lb hot sausage, casings removed
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary (or 1 tbsp dry)
3/4 cup part skim ricotta
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt & pepper to taste
Heat oven to 500. Stretch pizza dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet (or pizza stone).
In large skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil and add sausage. Cook, breaking it up, until no longer pink. Remove from pan and pour off any grease. In same skillet, add 2 tbsp olive oil and onion and peppers. Cook for about 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and rosemary.
Scatter the sausage, onion and peppers across pizza dough. Dollop with ricotta and sprinkle with parmesan. Drizzle with remaining 1 tbsp olive oil.
Bake until crisp, about 20 minutes.
The result - remarkably tasty dinner! Once again, pictures don't do this justice. I will, at some point, work on my styling and photography. This night though, I just wanted to take a bite. A big bite!
Happy to have yet another pizza to add to my repertoire.
