Best Pizza I’ve Ever Made
After a crazy week at work, I slept until noon today. It was great. When I woke up, hubby was complaining of being hungry. We didn’t have much in the kitchen, but I thought I’d use up the can of pizza dough we had and make calzones. I was looking for some filling options and realized the only cheese we had was cheddar. I found some chicken sausage in the freezer and thought it would be great with some roasted peppers, mushrooms and onions. The problem is that cheddar doesn’t go with those ingredients… I mixed up some sauce that would go with the other toppings and it ended up being the best pizza either of us have ever made! Chicken Sausage & Roasted veggie Pizza – 5 WW pts – (by ME!) – serves 8Pizza Crust - I used the canned Pillsbury kind3 chicken sausage links - I used Nature’s Promise Spiced Apple Chicken SausageRoasted red & yellow peppers - I used 1/2 jar of Trader Joe’s Fire Roasted Yellow and Red Peppers1/2 medium onion – chopped
1 cup sliced baby bella mushrooms
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp garlic mustard
3 Tbsp mayonaise - I used Nayonaise (soy-based sandwich spread)
In a small skillet, heat olive oil and garlic. Add onions until they start to turn clear. Add mushrooms and continue to cook.
Squeeze the chicken sausage out of it’s casing into a large skillet. Cook until browned.
When chicken sausage is cooked through, add contents of small skillet. Also add peppers. Stir together and simmer on low.
Mix mustard and mayo to make the sauce.
At the same time, follow directions for pizza dough and bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
Spread sauce onto pizza and then top with other toppings. Put pizza back in the oven for 7-10 more minutes.
