Deep Dish Sausage Pizza!!!

Deep Dish Sausage Pizza

We just had this for dinner, and it's delicious. Very very tasty and filling too. I substituted the dough part of the recipe, for my own one posted here.  It came out fluffy and soft and really good.

Deep Dish Sausage Pizza


1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
2 teaspoons cornmeal
1-3/4 cups pizza sauce
1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Pepper rings (green, red, orange or yellow, whichever you prefer)

On a lightly floured surface, roll and stretch dough into a 9-in. circle. Cover with plastic wrap; let rest for 10 minutes.

Roll and stretch the dough into a 12-in. circle. Sprinkle cornmeal into a greased 9-in. springform pan. Place dough in pan and press 1-in. up the sides of the pan.

Spread pizza sauce over crust. Top with sausage, 1 cup of cheese, oregano and green pepper. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake at 425º for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Remove to a wire rack; let stand for 5 minutes before removing sides of pan.

  1. Too bad I'd be the only one in my house to eat it.
    I hate having picky eaters (hubby included).
