A bright tomato sauce balances the spicy sausage in this classic pie. You don’t even need to shred cheese for this one—just scatter the mozzarella right onto the crust. Makes 3 servings. Ingredients: 1 ball pizza dough (enough for one 12-14” pizza), thawed at room temperature for about an hour 6 oz tomato sauce 8 oz mozzarella, cut or torn into chunks 8 oz crimini mushrooms, sliced 8 oz sweet Italian sausage Basil, roughly chopped You probably have: Chile flakes Instructions: Step 1:Preheat oven to 500ºF, or its maximum temperature. Heat a small splash of olive oil in a pan, adding the sausage when the oil is hot. Sauté sausage for about 5 minutes until it���s cooked through, using a spoon or spatula to break it up into smaller chunks. Set aside. Step 2: Stretch and roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface until it’s about a 12-14” round, and lay it on an upside-down baking sheet or pizza stone. Step 3: Spread tomato sauce over pizza dough, leaving about an inch around the edge for the crust, then layer on sliced mushrooms, cooked sausage, and mozzarella. Step 4: Bake pizza for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Top with freshly chopped basil and chile flakes if you choose! Contains: milk, wheat.
