Sweet Italian Sausage, Goat Cheese, Sauteed Onion & Green Pepper Pizza


I love pizza on Sunday nights. There is something to be said about eating a home cooked meal on Sunday after a busy weekend where you spent most of your time eating out. Yesterday started out as yet another chilly day, and by mid afternoon it was gorgeous outside. We made this fabulous pizza last night and sat down with the windows open and a big bottle of red wine - perfect end to a weekend!

You Will Need:
  • 1 ball of pizza dough (I prefer Whole Foods)
  • 1 1/4 cups pizza sauce 
  • 1/2 of a 12oz bag of mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 sweet onion, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • 8 oz sweet Italian sausage, crumbled
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

Here We Go:
  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F
  • Roll out dough using your hands or a rolling pin if you have one
  • Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in small skillet and cook sausage 7-10 minutes, or until no longer pink and set aside
  • Heat remaining Tbsp of olive oil in skillet and saute onions and green peppers for roughly 10 minutes, or until soft
  • Place dough on pizza stone or baking sheet
  • Top dough with pizza sauce, cheeses, sausage, onion and green pepper
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes on top rack, or until golden brown

Serves 8 Slices
Happy Feasting!
