Chicken Sausage, Peppers & Mushroom Pizza

Chicken Sausage, Pepper and Mushroom Pizza

Pizza is my absolute favorite food, so I decided on Super Bowl Sunday to take a shot at making a somewhat homemade healthy version using a whole-wheat crust.

Originally I planned to also make the sauce, but I took a different route since I was running a little low on energy after having to fix my ice maker. I had an unopened jar of Harris Teeter Puttanesca, which I purchased not realizing it had olives in it. I do not like olives. I think they taste like dirt so I figured using the sauce as pizza sauce would be a great way to mask some of that flavor and to not be wasteful.

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the pizza and after having successfully fixed my ice maker, I was on cloud nine.

Recipe Notes
  1. Place crust on pizza stone or pan. Coat the crust with 1/2 tsp olive oil then season with basil oregano, salt and set aside. (Don't omit the oil or salt but feel free to increase/decrease/omit/add other seasonings you prefer.)
  2. Slice the sausage then add 1 tsp of olive oil to a pan and brown. When done set it aside in a plate/dish on a paper towel to drain.
  3. Cook the peppers and mushrooms in the same pan until tender. The peppers will produce a lot of moisture so be prepared to drain during cooking. Once done set the peppers aside to drain.
  4. Add sauce to pizza crust and spread with a spoon then add half the cheese. (Remember you can add more or less cheese if you prefer.)
  5. Add the sausage and peppers to crust then cover with remaining cheese. ( I call this gluing so that the ingredients are nicely binding to the pizza by the cheese.)
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until done.
  7. Cool, slice and enjoy.
