Deep Dish Pizza with Sausage and Olives
Serves: 6 slices
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Kids like this deep dish style and making pizza at home is fast and usually healthier than the restaurant and take out versions. The sodium is a little high due to the cheese, marinara, olives and sausage.
1 pizza dough, refrigerated roll such as Pillsbury, (13.8 ounces)
1 cup cheese, mozzarella, low moisture and part skim milk, shredded
3/4 pound sausage, turkey
1/2 cup olives, black, pitted, sliced
1 cup marinara sauce, already prepared, jar or deli
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium high heat. Remove the pizza crust from the package and place in a 13 by 9 inch baking dish, pressing the dough over the bottom and about an inch and a half up each of the sides. Spread the marinara on top of the dough. Spoon the sausage on top of the marinara. Slice the olives and sprinkle them over the sausage. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese and bake in oven for approximately 10 to 15 minutes until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
