WAITING TO RISE

CONFESSIONS OF A BOTTOM DWELLER

Chicken Sausage Pizza

Ingredients:

1 bag pizza dough (used regular white dough from Publix)

1 onion, sliced into half moons

1 package roasted garlic chicken sausage, sliced on a diagonal (we used Simply Good brand)

1 ball fresh mozzarella, sliced

olive oil

garlic powder

oregano

salt

pepper

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 380 degrees.

2.  In a cast iron skillet, put 1 tbsp olive oil in pan and preheat on medium heat.  In the meantime, slice onions into half moons and and put in skillet with salt and pepper.  Let cook 2-3 minutes until onions are soft.  Add sliced chicken sausages to the onions and warm through while onions are caramelizing, about 5-7 minutes, stirring periodically.

3.  While onions and sausages are cooking, roll out pizza dough on baking sheet, sprayed with cooking spray and dusted with cornmeal.  Stretch dough into desired shape (I usually do a square) and drizzle top of the pizza crust with olive oil and sprinkle the crust with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

4.  Take cooked onions and sausages and spoon them onto the dough, until dough is covered (we had some leftover so we set some aside).  Lay slices of mozzarella over the onion/sausage mixture, sprinkle with oregano, and bake in oven 25-30 minutes (depends on what your directions are for your pizza dough).

5.  Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes before slicing & serving (if you can…we dug into it about 2 seconds after pulling it out of the oven)

Notes:  Its so good not letting the pizza crust get super crispy and brown.  Just a bit of that chewy dough was enough to make even the worst day all better again.  Enjoy!
