Sausage and Pepper Pizza

Today, dear readers I feel like a whole new woman!

Yesterday, I got my hair cut and colored and then got all gussied up and went on a date with my husband. We have a pile of gift cards we have been meaning to use, so we looked through the pile and grabbed four of them. We ended up having a 7 course meal at one of our favorite spots – complete with dessert.

We damn near had to be rolled out of the restaurant. I left with his hand in mine, all giggly and happy, staring at my husband with starry eyes – what is it about a simple date that makes me see my husband like I did when we were teenagers all over again?

I suppose I should talk about the food, since that’s probably why you came here in the first place. Today is a pizza we love – modeled after another one of our favorite spots Mill Valley Kitchen.

Sausage and Pepper Pizza

Yield: 2-4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

1 pre-prepared pizza dough
1/2 red pepper
1/2 green pepper
2-3 sausage links, cooked
1 white onion
1 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
1 cup of mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Roll out the pizza dough, and preheat your oven to the appropriate temperature. Usually it's about 375-400 degrees.
Slice your onion, and peppers thinly - I used a mandolin so they were extra thin!

Cook your sausage if they are not already cooked - I always boil sausage links in beer for about 30 minutes. Works every time and they have great flavor. Slice your cooked sausage thinly and at an angle. Sauce your pizza dough lightly, layer on the toppings, and sprinkle cheese over the top.

Bake based on the package instructions for the dough - usually about 15-18 minutes.
