Sweet Italian Sausage, Bell Pepper & Pepperoni Pizza

Pizza is my favorite food. 
I could eat it everyday.
  At Christmas I got THIS pizza maker.
(It is also on sale HERE)
We have been making pizza for dinner at least 1 time a week since we got it! 
I have been experimenting with different pizza toppings/recipes and there have been some REALLY good ones!
Like I mentioned in January, once a month I am going to share a new pizza recipe with you.
You don't need the pizza maker (you can use your oven) but I am letting you know that using this pizza maker gives your pizza an authentic pizzeria taste! 
I am planning on sharing a new pizza recipe the last Friday of each month in honor of Friday Night Pizza Night that we have every Friday night at our house :)

Today, I am excited to share my:
 Sweet Italian Sausage, Bell Pepper & Pepperoni Pizza
Here is what you need:
- Pizza Dough (I use pre-made dough from Safeway or Trader Joes.  I like Safeway's better because it so much easier to work with & tastes better! But, it was sold out this week, so I used Trader Joe's. You can make your own dough, but when the pre-made dough is only $1.50, this is a no brainer!)
- Pizza Sauce
-Mozzarella Cheese
- Sweet Italian Sausage
-Pepperoni
- Red, Yellow & Orange Bell Peppers (you can use a green bell pepper also, but they aren't my favorite...the red, orange & yellow are sweeter & go well with the sausage & pepperoni)

Remove casings & cook your Sweet Italian Sausage.
You won't need 1 pound of sausage for this pizza, maybe 1 or 2 links, but I cook the entire package at once & then freeze the rest for when I need sausage for my Lasagna or my Spicy Spinach Sausage Pasta Bake (which I really need to blog!)
While your sausage is browning, slice up your bell peppers.
Again, you will only use about 1/3 of each bell pepper for the pizza, but I slice them all up & save the rest to put in my kids lunches or for us to snack on with some hummus. So much easier to have healthy snacks when they are already prepped!
Roll out your dough on a lightly floured surface:
I then put my dough on a piece of parchment paper & add pizza sauce:
Add some mozzarella cheese:
Add the pepperoni:
Add the cooked Italian sausage:
Add the sliced bell peppers:
Bake in your pizza oven (or regular oven at 450 degrees) for 8-10 minutes 
(I bake mine on parchment paper for 5 minutes & then slide it off the parchment paper & bake it on the pizza stone)
Slice up your pizza & Enjoy!
I really like the sweetness of the sausage & the bell peppers!
The pepperoni adds a nice spiciness to the pizza! If you wanted to use Spicy Italian Sausage instead of Sweet Italian Sausage, I think that would be really delicious as well!
YUM!

  1. This looks delicious! But I'm curious why do you start cooking your pizza first on parchment paper?

    1. I cook it on the parchment paper for a few minutes because then I can slide the pizza off the parchment paper without messing up the crust or making all the toppings slide off. I like cooking it without the parchment paper because then it gives the crust a pizzeria taste! If I had a pizza peel, I wouldn't need to have the parchment paper because then I would have the pizza peel to transfer the pizza to and from the pizza cooker...but I don't have one of those....yet :)

  2. All your pizzas look SO good! We got a pizza stone for our wedding and haven't used it yet. Can I just cook it on the stone in the oven the entire time? xo, Kristina
