When you are single, you eat out often. However, lately I’m trying to do less of that and more of this “cooking” thing. And I’m loving it. And since I haven’t fully jumped on the made-from-scratch train, this pizza is definitely a single person’s pizza. Although, I like to think that it’s more for the time-pressed.
It starts with a no-mix, no-knead pizza crust that just needs a few quick tools and some layering. I went with a traditional topping of what I order: sausage, pepperoni, peppers, onion and lots of cheese.
It’s not perfect, but it definitely satisfied my pizza cravings. And it was so incredibly easy to make! Seriously, anyone can make this pizza. I’ve got a long way to go in the kitchen but I’m losing my fear and gaining confidence with every recipe I make. And regardless, nothing kept me and my brother, Matt, from mowing it down. That is saying a lot considering he makes his crust from scratch.
Stay tuned, because soon, I’ll be working my way towards homemade pizza crust.
- 1 Pilsbury Pizza Crust
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese, divided use
- ¾ lb. crumbled sausage, cooked
- 1 bell pepper, sliced
- ½ red onion, sliced
- 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, chopped
- Heat oven to 400F.
- Place dough between two sheets of lightly oiled parchment paper. Roll dough out to roughly an 11x17 rectangle. Peel back top parchment paper and discard. Transfer crust with bottom parchment attached to baking sheet.
- Layer crust with pizza sauce, 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, sausage, bell peppers, red onions and remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese. Transfer to oven and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and browned. Remove from oven and allow to rest for five minutes before serving.
