sausage, pepper, and mushroom pizza


2 sweet Italian sausage links
1 cup thinly sliced onion
1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
8 oz. mushrooms (can use shiitake, cremini, portobello or a mixture of those)
3-5 garlic cloves, minced
1 prepared pizza crust
1/2 cup pizza sauce (I recommend Rao's)
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp. thinly sliced fresh basil


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Remove casings from sausages. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble (I like to use a potato masher to crumble the sausage). Add onion, pepper, and mushrooms to pan; saute 8 minutes or until tender. Stir in garlic; saute 1 minute. Place pizza crust on a pizza stone. Spread pizza sauce evenly over crust, leaving a 1/8-inch border. Top evenly with mushroom mixture. Sprinkle evenly with cheese.
3. Bake for 8 minutes.
4. Remove from oven; sprinkle with basil.
